there was a study done where some cheap asses re-uses the same water bottle when the water bottle are more for 1 time use (nestea, kirkland) and in turn builds up bacterias.

there are other ones but it's more related to the plastic materials used for the bottles. i'll try to find the articles.

We used to use Brita Water Filter, where you just fill the top up with water, and over time it'll filter the water, and move it to the bottom on the jug. But imo it tasted pretty much the same as tap water, just maybe a bit sweeter. I think it's just a psychological thing, thinking that your water's cleaner.

I recently bought for my family an Espring Water Filter, and honestly love it. Definitely taste a significant difference from Brita.

they did it to keep their cost down.
Errrr...they still use reverse osmosis....their low-end filter is not.

personally I prefer the taste of tap water versus having it boiled.

I just have this dislike for the taste of boiled water, but that's just me.

i bought 24x591ml Aquafina from T&T Ottawa couple of weeks ago for only $6.29. it was on sale.

i have only been drinking bottled water since i got here in May... i tried that britta filter and it makes no difference.

i even tried the big gallon dispencer thing in the office, it still gives an after taste.

so i have been buying Aquafina or Dasani... it's hard to find a good deal though, at least there's 0% tax and $0 deposit fees in Ontario/Quebec for bottled water.

That's because they recycle there water. The water someone uses to shower with gets recycled into the water coming out of a sink tap. First thing to do when you get to Vegas is buy a case of water.

+1 to the water in China.

it tasted like the water that we had when we had the ground collapsed at our water reservoir.

but it wasn't too bad as long as I used cold water to brush my teeth.

Go to Walgreens beside MGM and buy those 1 gallon jugs for like 1 dollar or something.
