  • Neither. Water from the fridge since it's got a filter. That or from the filter pitcher we have. Why? Because bottled is too expensive and tap in my area tastes like dirt.

  • At home I use either tap or my frig water. I have ice and water on my frig. Tap if I am making hot beverages. Frig if I  am drinking cold beverages.  Bottle if I am out and about.

  • I've recently decided to just start drinking bottled over filtered/tap. I drink more water this way, and its cheaper than drinking as much diet Pepsi as I normally do. Our city water doesn't taste horrible - it's fine for cooking and coffee/tea, but to just drink straight doesn't taste very good. I've also tried a few different filter systems as well as individual filtered bottles and I still wind up not drinking very much.

  • Tap water that's gone through a filter and been refrigerated. I can't stand to drink my tap water straight from the tap, it doesn't taste right and it smells a bit funky - it's just minerals, nothing hurtful, but I don't like it. And bottled water has a strange taste to me as well, not sure why.

  • Tap. We live on a natural aquifer and have a well. I do keep bottled fluoridated water in the car for the kids, though.

  • We have a Brita filter pitcher plus several bobble bottles with built in filters

  • Artesian well water would be my choice.. City water has too much chlorine and not enough minerals. Bottled water isn't regulated well at all and can be worse for you.

  • i have a camelbak water bottle with filter for tap water and a brita attachment on the sink

  • I prefer tap water but buy bottled water. We are on a well and the tap water does not taste and sometimes not smelling good.
