I prefer bottled. Tap water has a nasty taste to it.

The tap in my flat is shitty and I would prefer bottled water, so I voted accordingly, but in reality I just put up with it and drink the Chlorine tasting tap-water.

The water seems to be alright at the rest of the campus though - have no idea why...

In the house I'm living in now, I try to get as much bottled water as possible...the tap water isn't as bad as some places, but it's still got that nasty taste and texture.

But when I used to live in my grandparents house, the tapwater there was amazing, and really fresh. Almost as good as the water coming out of the carved in stone narural fountain a short walk away

I drink tap water at home, bottled of course if I'm out. If I'm on holiday, I tend to drink bottled and not from the tap. It's not that it's unsafe, I've just had a few upset stomachs from it.

duh.


This, although I do use bottles in certain rooms after my foot caught on a power cord and water fell on an old laptop. Being able to seal it is very helpful sometimes.

Guys the water that comes out of my fridge is pretty incredible, I can't even describe it. If you live in the northwest feel free to stop by and try. B)

England water sucks. Scotland water is best water.

I grab a water bottle on Mondays and keep refilling it until the end of the week. Works well for me. I haven't noticed a difference in taste between tap and bottled water.

Does it bio-degrade after a week?
