I never drink tap water plain (in juice or something is fine) I should buy stock in bottled water! It is weird though, because I can drink water at a restaurant just fine and the water out of my tap doesn't taste funny or anything. I have certain brands of water I like better than others too. Yes, I am a water snob.

We use a Brita Water Filter for our tap water. BEST WATER EVER. It even made the water in Beaufort SC taste good. I think even bottled water tastes like crap now because of the awesomeness that is the Brita filter. I used to manage a thrift store and when they'd come in I'd buy them and give them to my friends.

LoL, reminds me of when I lived in Texas. I think we joking said our water came from Skunk lake... or maybe that wasn't a joke! I don't know.

I do usually prefer bottled water, but if I'm near well water I drink it tap. I grew up on well water and I love the harsh clean taste to it. Haha, I guess that's why I like bottled water now!

I drink bottled, or purified water. I have a sensitivity to raw chlorine, and there is less of it in bottled and filtered water than tap. Plus, our tap water tasts like crap.

And the town I grew up in, pregnant women can't drink the water because of what's in it, so mom just never gave it to any of us just to be sure.

the water here in georgia tastes like swamp water so i buy a big 2 gallon fridge tap of zephyrhills. i used to have a brita filters but they kept breaking on me so i gave up replacing the tap part.

now, if i am back home in nyc i have no problem drinking the tap water. they have one of the best tasting tap water in the country.

I love love love bottled water but I don't drink it because I don't see the point when i'm at home and can have some from the tap less trash in the landfill and less money spent.

Bottled or filtered. Oh and most, if not all (well, not places like Waffle House lol) have filtered water, so it's not really tap.

Regular tap just tastes funny to me. Although when I lived in GA, I drank tap. The tap water was good where I was!

It depends on the water source. I live someplace with very high quality tap water, and it tastes just fine from our pipes, so we drink tap water. I actually hate the plasticy taste you get from bottled water sometimes.

Tap, filtered or not. I don't like the idea of paying for my water, and the bottles are harmful to the planet.

I like my water cold so I fill a jug from the tap and chill it in the fridge. It's not filtered but somehow it makes it taste way better. I do buy bottled water when I'm out and about though.

Thank you MommaDucks for the AMAZING siggy!

We have bottled water but rarely use it. We filter our tap water and use reusable metal water bottles.
