    Bottled? Tapped? Mineral?

    I've been looking for a good water source. I've been drinking Fiji water and I find it to be softer than most other water I have tasted.

    Thoughts?

    I've heard that water pressure makes a huge difference too. Low water pressure is not so good.icon_sad.gif

    Also depends where the water has been. Some water towers haven't been properly cleaned and may have dead critters and....

    ...I better stop, that's so ewww

    Indeedy. Where i'm living now, it tastes completely fine, and i've never had a problem from it.

    Once though, I stayed in a youth hostel and collected kitchen tap water in an empty Evian water bottle and then placed it in the fridge for the night. Started drinking it after, only for that night and the next day get a nasty itchy cough in the back of my throat. Urgh. Found out later that some very old buildings (this one was in an old posh part of London, i think a Victorian era building), have old ass pipes that are grimy, so, despite the water itself being drinkable, the pipes under this particular building made it inconspicuous filth.

    I only drink tap water out of my home or homes of places I trust now (relatively modern buildings only- meh, i'm sure the vast majority are fine).

    I want to buy one of those kitchen appliance multi water-filters when I move into my next place though. Save more money in the long run, over repeated purchases of bottled water for all home stored/usable water. And better for the environment too. I'd imagine.

    This is why when you're traveling you should drink bottled water only. Like, who knows how old those pipes are.

    Is that why people get travelers diarrhea?

    Sorry that's a tangent icon_lol.gif

    Blessed by the gays? icon_lol.gif

    Bottled water either Fiji or Nestle. Aquafina is bottled by the town next to me, no use in drinking that. I've been thinking about getting a good filter, just gotta do it.

    Some water actually has so much sulfate in it that it will cause a change in your intestinal biota. For example, it promotes the growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria at the expense of methanogenic microbes. You could get dysentery for a few days while people who drink it all along notice nothing. In the US, this mostly (but not exclusively) affects the southwest. I don't think that any major city exceeds the EPA guideline, but it's not actually a requirement, since it won't cause serious harm.

    refridgerator water and if bottled, it's hopefully nestle pure life (apparently the only good one according to some yahoo article).

    Someone should post links to research about the quality of tap water and whether it is a big deal or not. I personally have never been taught that it is bad and drink tap (although filtered with a Pur filter I haven't replaced for 5-6 months...).

    If it were really bad for you, then wouldn't all the people who are illegal and lack health insurance in this country be dead?
