    @Sweet_Tea:

    I can’t stand water.  It’s gotten better because it use to always make me want to get sick.  I drink ice cold lemon water.  It’s the only thing I can do to block the flavor.

    Being from Vancouver I hadn’t really understood why people didn’t want to drink tap water.  When I moved to Southern California I got it – ugh the water there is horrible!  The water up where I live is phenomenal, probably better than bottled.

    We live in the mountains and have well water. It tastes amazingly fresh and clean!

    The tap water here is fine. I drink it all the time. Though before my husband moved he had well water. Now THAT was gross to drink!!!

    For some reason the well water where he lived was disgusting.. Thank goodness for tap!

    I’ve lived all over the country (IN, NC, GA, TX, CA) and travelled even more of it and I’ve never had a problem with tap water anywhere in the US.

    I grew up on the west coast of Michigan where all our water came directly from our nearest great lake and was blasted with a bunch of chlorine, just in case.  LOVE going home and drinking that tap water.  Fresh, cold, and delicious.  Now I’m over here just outside the reach of Detroit city water (which is actually good! – comes from the great lakes also) where we have “city well” in most places.  City has a bunch of, or one really deep well, and water is treated to varying degrees based on the area.  Ours now is alright, but SUPER HARD.  Water softener takes care of most of that, and we use the Brita for everything with drink and cook with.  Even give it to the dog, but mostly cause it’s cold.  She’s so spoiled now she waits for a top-off before she’ll get a drink. 

    We have bottled water for when we’re out and about, but can’t justify the cost and waste when we’re at home and it’s just fine once it goes through the softener and Brita.
