    Do you buy your water in bottles or do you drink tap water?

    I never bought water in bottles until I moved to UK (Scandinavia has the best water quality and the water just tastes gooood there, so there was no need to). Here... the water's supposed to be good, but to me... it just tastes and smells kinda weird. And it's never very cold when it comes out of the tap. And it even looks kinda grey... I usually just drink it anyway, coz I don't like buying tons of plastic bottles, but... it just doesn't taste right. :(

    I only buy bottle to get the bottle. I then refill it from tap or drinking fountain.

    I'm in the Uk too and I agree with what you said about the water tasting funny here. Back home in chile, you can drink tap water and it even has some fluorine in it for your teeth, but you dont notice it. We always buy bottled water cos its cheap and it tastes better.

    I have this bretta water purifier jug that you just fill up and put in the fridge. I think it works good. I also like Dasani bottled water.

    tap water has chlorine and florine in it, so i try to avoid it. dasani has salt in it to make you thirstier(coca-cola at its best) so i tend to stick to the bottles, but i dont drink much water, i drink coffee(tons of coffee) and juice(tons of juice) and beer(tons of beer) and veggitable juice(my favorite). i also have a water filter, but its more for the wilderness, so i dont use it with tap water, cus i dont want chloride or floride to form in there and clog it up.

    I drink tap. It's fine and tastes ok. Bottled water --> too many plastic bottles around.

    I dont like to drink the tap here cause they put a ban on it last year for like a month cause something got into the supply and i just dont like the thought of it. They sell this military special bottle water at the exchange for like .69 cents a gallon so i usually drink that. It only tastes good super cold though
