Read the label. MSW means Municipal Water Supply.

Yes, and I haven't looked at Aquafina's website, but Dasani's website says that it's purified tap water. So what? It tastes good to me, much better than the water from MY tap, so that's why I drink it.

I love Dasani - but as you know, we all have different tastes, likes and dislikes. We know that many of the bottled waters are tap water, because they say so on their websites, and on other websites that talk about and compare bottled water. I don't see what's the big deal about if it's tap water or not - that just doesn't matter to me. It does seem like it matters to other people, though. I think people should drink what they want and like to drink.

The water I think I recall you saying you like the most - Crystal Geyser - is spring water, not tap water and from what I've read about it, it's highly rated and cheap in price. Many people agree with you. I will have to get some and try it out.

Don't know how far East Crystal Geyser ships but you can check that out. I know my sister used Poland Water living on the E.C. and we in Calif cannot get it.

Yes, I was wondering about that, since I live about as far east as one can in the continental USA. I haven't looked for it in stores yet. I wonder if I might be able to find it here at one of our grocery stores. I'll have to check. Maybe I can find out where it's sold by looking at their website. Now I really want to try some!

The filters are more expensive than Pur/Brita, but they also filter out much more stuff.

I used to live in an area with TDS of 230 and there a filter lasted about 3 months. Where I live now the TDS is 36 so a filter lasts at least 9 months.

Thanks for the link. It removes lead to below the 15 ppb that is allowed by law. I checked my town's water quality online last year when I moved here and the lead level had been as high as 12 ppb in the past. Going to check again now--it's all available online. Just type in your town and state to see the quality of your water.

Coca Colas Dasani here because our tap water tastes dirty as many other brands of bottled water we've tasted.

I am in Florida and can get Crystal Geyser at the $$$ stores. I don't think it is sold anywhere else here. I have purchased Aquafinal and Dasani, but only when on sale. I once read that any purified water is as good as or better than "spring" water. I can't drink my tap water here, it smells/taste like chlorine and I question the pipes that deliver it to the faucet.

Always the tap water at our houses too. At one camp, the water comes from the lake, so we bring drinking and cooking water there.
