For bottled water I like Smartwater or Fiji. I've tried some of the alkaline waters and they didn't taste too good to me, plus apparently some of them have salt in which I'm trying to avoid.

Tap water, filtered. If I buy water I generally opt for smart water because the bottles are easy to refill from a fountain. I do also like lacroix sparkling water, especially passion fruit and tangerine.

Crystal Geyser is also sold at the 99cent stores here. Since I get delivery now of major foodstuffs, our market sells it for 79cents for a 1.5 liter bottle. To me, it's the best clean water.

My water passes first through a whole house filter, and than through Britta filters in the kitchen and bath room .
Other than that, the filtered water at starbucks is pretty good .

Wow, I never realized there were taste differences amongst different type of bottled water!

I drink filtered tap water all the time. I will also drink any type of bottled water.

I drink tap water too. It tastes fine to me and I drink a lot of water. I think buying bottled water is horrible for the environment.

And I agree about the environment, but MANY believe in protecting our internal environment as best we "think" is necessary and this is one way. I've posted a lot of about clean, quality water and done enough research about the chemicals/medications added to tap water (public waters).

They have to. They DO filter it and stuff, but a large percentage of bottled water is just from our regular tap system.
