Here's a tip, Dude - flavored with a generous amount of Scotch, water tastes just fine.

I drink the bottled water. In my city the tap water is so heavily chlorinated that it tastes like crap.

Anything is BETTER than tap (so called ) water.
Myself! I drink SPRING WATER!
I never bought a bottle of water in my life.
Like my GOOD Friend Dammit said" I have some canned air for sale if anyone is interested.
And like my Friend zipulrich said "flavored with a generous amount of Scotch, water tastes just fine."
As always your friend DELTREE, just trying to help out!

Just remember that tap water lines in most cities are 100 years old or older and run parallel with sewer lines. In most cases the sewer lines are almost as old as the water lines. As time goes by, small cracks occur in both water and sewer lines. This creates a cross contamination possibility. All municipalities keep a positive pressure on the water lines at all times to keep out the sewage. They also chlorinate the heck out of the tap water to kill bacteria from the sewage seepage. That's why each time there is a loss of water pressure due to a power failure or pump break down a boil water advisory goes into effect.

Lest we forget the Milwaukee contaminated water illness of 1993.

Bottled water anyone?

That doesn't change the fact that bottled water is still the same stuff. Even if it's contaminated, you can boil the tap water for a fraction of a cent of energy. Or, you can have someone else maybe boil the same tap water, put it in a bottle, give it a fancy name like "Pristine Mountain Springs", then sell it at a rate nearly 3 times the cost of unleaded petrol (or about 1000x the cost of tap water).
