Bottled as long as I can recycle the bottle.

Either one, but I prefer bottled water at room temperature.

It all depends on the source of your tap water and how heavy treated it is. I drink only bottled water from a high mountain spring source as our city water is from a shallow well that is fed from a river with polution from a paper mill and also a concerning level of radiation. Treating water may make it drinkable, but that doesn't mean it is healthy. Not all bottled water is of quality. One local water bottle company gets its water from a spring. That spring is surrounded by heavy chemical fertilized fields. Not for me. I say know the source and treatments used is the question.

It is funny. I drink straight from the tap. Shoot, I drank out of garden hoses and creeks when I was little and I haven't died yet. I guess I am lucky to be old. I figure if there is something in the water and I die, oh well. I have lived a great life! LOL

Tap water that way there is not plastic waste. :) Plus that means I can also easily refill without the bottle getting all soft and crinkled and add whatever flavours I want. :)

Tap water 99.9999999% of the time. Sometimes, at the end of a race or at another event, I get a bottle of water, so that's the rare time I do drink bottled water. Otherwise, the tap water at my home is fine and I have plenty of refillable water bottles. I even found one made by Hydrapak that collapses down quite small for travel; I used it on my recent cruise in the Caribbean and it worked great.

I drink tap water most of the time. Typically what I'll do is fill a container with water and place it in the fridge overnight. Through the day I'll drink the cooled water. I guess too letting water sit over night will often let the chlorine added to tap water to evaporate away.

I use tap water which is rainwater from my roof to a concrete water tank. In NZ they have done studies and found that a lot of bottled water is no safer than tap water, and in some cases, tap water is safer ...... may not taste as good but is safer. The bottled water includes a couple very well known international brands which are imported.

For the most part, we use our tap water --- filtered (fridge filter) for use in the coffee maker or for usual drinking, or straight from the tap for filling the kettle or making soups or sauces.

We do purchase some bottled water (from Costco - which is actually tap water from a town 5 minutes to the south of us) purely for the convenience of being able to keep large quantities in the vehicle when we are out of town. All bottles are recycled (well, actually, donated to local kids' sports clubs who collect bottles, since we pay a fee on all bottles which is refunded when turned in for recycling - one of my favourite fund-raisers to support).

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

I drink tap water run through a Brita or Pur filter pitcher. My mom however. Likes bottled spring water. So she sends me to Costco to buy a pallet of water, 40 bottles of Deer Park Spring Water.

She recycles every single bottle before anyone has an aneurism.
