    My favorite it Aquafina, and I can absolutely tell the difference between it and my tap water.

    I like Aquafina too!

    Penn & Teller must not have surveyed the water in Seattle, which has quite a bit of lead.

    My doctor says I have enough lead in my diet, I am not to allow bullets to enter my body at any time.

    The bottled water that they give out in the Trump Marina in AC is delicious. I think its called Purely TRUMP or some crap.

    Aquafina is my favorite bottled water too- but I think my tap water tastes good too.

    Some tap water tastes nasty, but then again, so does some bottled stuff.

    I have several devices in my home known as "faucets" which dispense free water into any handy receptacle by turning a smallish knob or handle. I can choose either hot or not hot water by selecting the appropriate knob or handle. These apparently unique implements save me the trouble and expense of purchasing water in bottles in stores and lugging them home.

    I do buy bottled drinking liquids on a regular basis--these are known as "Caffeine free Diet Pepsi" and "Caffeine free Diet Coke" and are unfortunately not available from my homes "faucets".

    I like Aquafina because it tastes like Water!

    I hate Poland Spring because it tastes like Water! [​IMG]

    Seriously, I prefer my water to be 2 parts Hydrogen and 1 part Oxygen. Mmmmm! Good water!

    off topic: I was at a party and they had a tub with a bunch of different beers. Toward the end of the night they were out of Coronas so I grabbed a Labatts Blue and said "I guess I'll try this". My friend asked me (after I took a sip) "How does it taste?" I looked at him with a dumbfound expression and said "It's good, it tastes like beer...DUH!"

    [​IMG]

    back on topic: It's water, how can it be different??? If it tastes different, then there's obviously something else in it. Which IMHO, does not make it water any more...More like VERY diluted mud [​IMG] 99% water...1% dirt

    The worst tap water I've ever tasted was Toronto water...it tasted like mud mixed with water! Gross! I even had a Coca Cola in a Toronto restaurant that tasted like mud...obviously made from the syrup mix combined with the polluted water in question.

    Bottled Toronto tap water would never fly commercially. [​IMG]

    Aquafina is purified (read "distilled")tap water. You don't want to know what kinds of things they've found in "president's choice"

    Honestly, the rules and regulations governing what goes into your tap water are about 200x more stringent than for bottled water. The P&T special was fantastic, they even put a rubber spider in the bottom of one of the bottles and claimed it leached nutrients into the water and some woman bought it hook line and sinker

    Well I worked for Culligan and serviced Reverse Osmosis systems. After seeing what the filters look like when I change them...yeah I'll always have a Culligan system or drink bottled water when I can.

    evian spelled backwards is.....

    that being said, i do drink bottled water when convenient, but i don't go out of my way to have it. whatever is handy is good enough for me.

    i like dasani water, aquafina is ok too, along with poland spring. but the absolute worst is evian, it tastes like diluted milk. and yes, i can easily identify between them all in a blind taste test. but i dont believe some people cant tell the difference between coke and pepsi!

    I like sparkley water b/c it is a sipping and not gulping drink, but I care not about the brand, etc. And, don't forget, if you have kids, tap water that is too filtered or non-tap water does not have fluoride. (which to some is a good thing...)
