Several double-blind taste tests showing comparisons between bottled waters & municipal waters placed in bottles, favor the municipal waters..... New York City water being one of the municipals. One of my favored waters was Moab, Utah, when they had just opened a reservoir, filtered through all the wonderful sandstones in the region.

Hey, we in the Pacific Northwest, where water is tapped from clean Cascade Mountain waters, know superb water...... at least, outside of Seattle.

Business people have foisted-off on the public, mythological stories of the superiority of bottled waters. Bottled water isn't superior to municipals, even tho those business people charge....... 1000 times more per liter for their water.

Saying all the above tho, while crossing Minnesota, The Land of 10,000 Lakes, I must say their waters in three towns did not taste good.

I don't like bottled water. It gives me a sour stomach. That's because of the bacteria:

You can give me bottled water. I can pour out the bottled water, wash, rinse & fill it with tap water.

I'm glad that "phud feces face" hasn't found this thread. Two threads might teach him to stop drinking bottled water. Actually, bottled water might help him. The bacteria in the bottled water might fight the bacteria in the feces on the face of 'phud feces face', & vice-versa. The physical demeanor of "phud feces face" might improve......... NAH!

"phud feces face" found this thread. It will still drink bacteria-laden bottled water, in hopes that the bacteria will kill the feces bacteria.
