Question

Bottled Water


I drink a lot of bottled water. I read where Americans spend $31 billion a year on bottled water. It's obviously very popular.

There are so many brands of bottled water out there I can't list them all. I just listed some of the more popular brands. Which brand(s) are your favorite?

Fiji is my favorite.

We always have Mount Franklin in the fridge, but most bottled water is the same except for a few I didnít like.

Buy a 6 pack of 750ml in Aldi for roughly €2 sometimes, seems good enough, not sure of the brand, otherwise tap water, they're very expensive to buy big brands or individually, never mind the demon single use plastic.

The only time I buy bottled water is when I'm in a third world country. You have to up there or you'll get very sick. (even to clean your teeth)

If I want water here I get it from the tap. Australian water is clean.

I drink winco brand 2.5 gal jugs. We need a better system though. I'm thinking of getting a reverse osmosis setup for the sink.

I like the Ice Mountain ones with the flip top bottles. Strictly for the bottle. The flip top is very easy to operate and very secure when closed. It also tastes better to me than something like Dasani purified water (which has a bit of a metallic or chemical taste to it).

It's a scientific fact that beer is better for you than water. Look it up!

I live on a farm with a private well. My water is pure, clean and free of contaminants so I drink out of the tap.

Tap water where I live is of questionable quality, but I still drink from the tap, and use no filter. You have to die from something, right?

Mostly drink tap water but will drink Crystal Geyser or the store brand.
