Tap, definately. For me, and most Dutchmen actually, bottled water is very silly. But we don't mind its existence, it's fabulous income after all.

Tap. If you're really that worried about your water being shitty, just buy one of those filters you put on the spout. They're expensive but still cheaper than bottled annually.

I buy fruit flavoured bottled water as a replacement for soft drinks. As for "pure" water, tap all the way.

Tap water. Bottled water is the biggest waste of money ever.

Tap, where I live it's one of the best quality tap water in the country. When you go to Belgium though... horrible in some places.

Don't those fruit flavoured waters have a ridiculous amount of sugar in them as well?

Tap at home. I just refill my bottle. If I'm out though and don't have water and need a drink I might consider buying bottled water.

I don't have problem with water straight from the tap, although i won't drink it.
HAS to be filtered first.

I have a well so I drink tap water. When I go somewhere I make sure to have bottled water because I can't stomach the tap water because of the fluoride and chlorine they put in it.
IDK if anyone else has e. coli breakouts where they live but they are always dumping chemicals in the tap water because of it.

Bottled, but I buy big bottled water for about 17p per 2l. It's most likely water from their tap, but my taps give off weird tasting water. Hence, bottled water.

WRONG, tap is cleaned enough so it dosnt make you sick, but it still has DDT"s and all kinds of other crap thats way to expensive and time consuming for local water treatment plants to filter or clean out to meet demands.

Here in America they have places to deposite unwanted pharmaceuticals just so people wont flush them down the toilet, why, because it dos not get taken out of the water supply, and people end up with small amounts of that crap in their bodies.

I drink bottled and filtered tap

No, they have sweeteners. They're more "potent" and you only need a small amount to get the same level of sweetness, compared to sugar.

I figured cancer is better than diabeetus.

Tap isn't as good as bottled, but it's still okay to drink. It seems silly to pay so much and throw away all that plastic to drink some water because it being on the shelves gives me an idea it's better.
