    do you have a preference?

    our tap water is warm unless it's been run for aminute or so and is cloudy till it 'settles' and tastes funny. plus i'm weird about drinking tap water, feel a bit dirty so it's bottled all the way for me... though when we run out i will make do with tap. we also have them new fancy taps where the water comes out all soft and bubbly and it's annoying! my nans tap water tastes far nicer and is actually cold... and she has normal taps! i don't mind what brand water i get, be it iceland/bnms/tescos own or evian

    Tap water!

    Just think how much is spent making tap water safe to drink when the whole USP to bottled water is that it's just collect as is. It's been through mud, animal poo, rocks and all kinds of things and as it started off as rain water has probably been wee'd out by someone!

    OK ill sound bad, but i only drink bottled water. I buy 24 small bottles and 8 large every week :blush: just because we live next to the canal and the water really tastes funny. Even juice we make with bottle water and cups of tea etc bottled water goes into the kettle. Esp for jacobs bottles. The water isnt fresh out the tap in my house :rofl: XxxX

    We have a Brita filter jug in the fridge, but I also drink bottled water when I'm going out. And Yes, we do recycle and compost. I'm a bit of a nut about it.

    I never drink tap water... it feels dirty and unhygeinic... I know it's clean, but I can't drink it at all after there was cryptosporidium in the water round here a few years ago... I can't drink it anywhere just incase there's something icky in it... I even put bottled water in the kettle when I want to make tea. Sounds silly I know :p ... Doing the Volvic 14 day challenge at the moment. =D
