where do you get water in bulk?

everyone needs H2O everyday and just wondering what is the best way to transport water since that shit is kinda heavy and a bitch to bring home i hate it.. well i have been picking up water bottles in about like 35 packs at super store for like 10 bucks a pack after taxes and this crap is heavy, i am tireed of bringing home heavy packs of water that doesnt last more than a week.. is there an easier way around this? drink tap water? boil water takes to long, maybe filtering tap water? or there is those big ass jugs of water which looks prety damn heavy and would also need a machine to dispence it.. also has anyone ever heard of bottled water being dirty? yeah i am kinda a lazy ass..

LM tap water is bulk free and hasn't killed anyone yet and is oft sought after by our southern neighbors. Secondly it is naturally fortified by minerals and nutrients beneficial for healthy living.

The members that say their tap water taste funny...it could be your pipes.

Get a Brita filter, or do what a lot of people do, boil your water and cool it, pour it in a glass container and voila! If you want really good water get a water ionizer.

Or order a water dispenser from Canadian Springs or something....but waste of money

We use the Wa2! reverse osmosis system - it's awesome. You'll find that you can't drink tap water ever again.

Tap.

Don't be such a pussy. Vancouver tap water is among the cleanest in the world.

Plus...bottled water usually costs more than...gas.

FYI, they are no longer using Reverse Osmosis. They used to many years ago but they have switched everyone over to "the best micro filter" now. They did it without telling anyone so dont' be alarmed when they say, "oh, we replaced with something a lot 'better' ".

they did it to keep their cost down.

It's pretty check, if u want another spout under your sink, it's about 29 dollars.

I suggest you buying one rather than renting.

Long story short, just like Canadian springs, they filter Vancouver tap water thru filters, then passes through reverse Osmosis and the polishes it off with a carbon filter, it takes away the chlorine tastes.

Tap water tastes really good here. Been to Vegas and their water tastes absolutely awful. Wasnt there a study done recently that show bottled water contains more bateria than tap water?
