I almost only drink tap water. We have a filter, and water dispenser on our refrigerator. That works well enough for me. I'll drink bottled water in a pinch, but I don't really see any reason to do so on a regular basis.

I have a steel water bottle that I fill up, and I carry that with me most places I go. I just refill it when I get a chance to.

Once gave a class to bio majors.
I heard that European tap water contains a lot of female hormones.
I also heard that nearly all plastic bottled water could cause forms of cancer and bad stuff I can't recollect right now.
Most of them thought glass bottled water was best.

I tend to adapt to the situation.

Filtered tap water or bottled water. I can't stand the taste of straight tap water

I usually just drink tap, but I've been hearing that flouride is like the worst thing for you, but I don't know how much of that is just conspiracy theorist bullshit.

I've never tasted tap water that wasn't awful, bottled/in a jug for me.

I don't know if it's because I'm already used to drinking tap water all the time, but it tastes better to me than bottled water for some reason.

I drink bottled because we have it, plus our water smells like eggs sometimes. Which I`m pretty sure isn`t good.

Years ago, when the bottled stuff was just becoming popular, our local tabloid paper did a taste test of 7-8 brands with a bunch of volunteers.
The winner....St. Louis county tap water....
The only time we drink the bottled stuff is for convenience; on a car trip or something. I normally keep a couple of commercial bottles around and just fill 'em from the tap or the drinking fountain.
The university I work at has prohibited plastic bottles for the most part, and has equipped all the drinking fountains with those handy bottle-filler taps.

Bottled when I have it, which is most of the time.

Maybe i'd drink tap if it was more fun for me. Like if I had dat new cool motion-detection faucet.

Tap water all the way. I work in the water industry though, so i'm kinda biased.

So you're the mf adding the fluoride shit to the water, government pays you well to keep us doped huh? [/conspiracy theorizing]

Anyway, I drink tap normally, bottled if I'm out and need a drink. To the people that say tap should taste fine ya pansies, some peoples tap sucks because of old pipes or being on the grid, treated water tends to taste like chemicals.
