    Disclaimer... that is NOT my cat or my faucet! I would not drink the tap water if the cat was drinking from the tap :D

  • We have a water cooler with the big 5 gallon jugs of water on it that we use. It's way better tasting than tap and not as wasteful as bottled since the bottles get reused

  • We drink filtered tap water, there's more calcium in our water than in our milk!

  • Our fridge has a filter in it and dispenses water, that's what we drink. The only time I buy bottled is if I'm having guests, I think its nice to offer them some to take for the ride home, etc. For everyday use we use re-usable water bottles.

  • I will drink tap water elsewhere but not in our town. It is sooooo nasty, not only in taste and smell (and the particles floating in it), but in our annual water reports too. Always has unacceptable levels of coliform (fecal bacteria), high levels of HTMs, and just below legal gov't cut off for lead levels. We have been paying sky high water bills supposidely to revamp our water system but there has been no documented improvment. It is nasty, nasty stuff. We don't drink it, cook with it, or brush our teeth with it. We use bottled purified water for all of those things. I generally only give the kids showers at our house, and let them take baths at my parents since kiddos always drink bathwater. :P
