Nah, I wouldn't call myself one. I actually think our tap water tastes better than some bottled water, but I'm kind of weird.

I think the only time when I actually drink bottled water is on vacation or traveling - it always tastes weird to me. Not neccesarily bad, just much different from what I'm used to.

Our water sucks, so yeah, we filter it. We have one of those fridges with the filter thingy in it, so it works out all right.

I'm not that fussy about water, but I'm used to the well water we have at home. It has a whole-house particle filter and a charcoal filter for the fridge. Tastes pretty good.
I have a faucet filter since water is my main beverage. I will occasionally drink some bottled teas, but mostly enjoy water with slices of lemon the best.

Regarding bottled water: I don't really know the different brands...but I am going to try Fiji water since so many people seem to think it tastes really good.

I have bought bottled water and it has had that plastic bottle taste...not sure why how that happens since the water hadn't "expired".

No, our tap water's actually pretty good. I still use a brita filter sometimes tho.

When I lived in Portland, ME the tap water there was HORRIBLE! I shudder to think how much $$ I spent on bottled water when I lived there.

If I buy bottled water now I do prefer Dasani to other brands.

Mountain Valley Spring Water is my favorite and that's what we have delivered to our house every month for our big water dispenser thingy.
My sister-in-law has water delivered for her water dispenser; I just remembered that it's one more water that I will willingly drink. I'll have to check to see if hers is Mountain Valley Spring Water.

My other SIL gave me a cup of ice water from her tap and it was just :nono:nono1.gif Both the ice and the water smelled horrible.

I can't afford Evian water all the time, only when I'm feeling a little crazy with my $$$, and then it has to be a small one. I've always wanted to try some of the other fancy waters in the funky bottles (to see if they taste like the water back home) but they are just SO expensive!
I drink filtered water at home and bottled water at work. I will drink spring water (love Fiji and Pure American). If spring isn't available, I'll go with a purified like Dasani or Aquafina. I can't tell the differences between those two, but I can tell when I'm drinking spring vs. filtered or vs. purified.
I used to drink tap water, but then I decided to try bottled water and now I drink bottled water most of the time. The tap water doesn't taste as good to me anymore.
I get the cheapest kind usually. I never drink anything else but water so I thought that at least I could drink bottled water then. :P

I usually only drink bottled, if I'm in a pinch I'll drink tap, but not in Philly only if I'm outside the city limits, that tastes nasty. My bf works for a bottled water company so we get all the free bottled water we want! ~~jax

Total water snob. The only decent tap water I've ever tasted is that in Colorado. Ours here in Austin is awful.
I drink Ozarka and cook w/ filtered.

Not at all. Our tap water is mountain fresh and tastes good most of the year (late summer/early fall is the only iffy time).

When I travel, though, I only drink bottled water. I was in San Diego last week and the water tasted terrible.

Tap water is highly regulated, as someone already mentioned. Most of what gives tap water an unpleasant taste will not be harmful to the health. Still, some tap water doesn't taste good.

You could, of course, have your water tested if you want to be sure about it. We have ours tested now and then because we have a well.
Yeah, for me, it's purely taste. Our tap water just tastes bad. I only like spring water; it just tastes better. And I don't like the taste of most bottled waters, either, including Evian, Dasani and Fiji.

i think it's funny when people obsess over bottled water but go to restaurants and consume drinks chilled with municipal-water ice!

i drink mainly tap water that we chill in a pitcher in our fridge. and ice made from municipal water through the ice-maker in our freezer.

sometimes i purchase bottled water.

when we went camping this summer, we bought a couple of cases of bottled water and kept it on ice in its own cooler. but that's because we were camping in the woods.
