Multifaceted question for me. I drink the tap water at my apartment in Baltimore without hesitation. The city water is fine. That's typically all I drink, actually, because I'm a cheap bastard. However, I have never drank the water at my parents house. Not in the 17 years we've lived there. It is well water. Nasty well water, with a metallic taste and occasionally a funky smell. We get jugs of water from my grandparent's house near the city. I would sooner drink from the Bay than from my parents tap water. I'm sure it's technically safe, but I shall not chance it.

Yes, because it's not all that horrible or hard in the area of West London where I live ^^

I don't drink water. Atleast not plain water.

And if you can believe anything on tv, there was a man on 1,000 Ways to Die who tried flushing his nose out with regular tap water, even though it was advised to use filtrated water, so either bacteria or parasites made their way to his brain. Been a while since I had seen that episode, not that that has anything to do with why I don't like drinking water.

I just do not like the taste, it's like saliva.

I used to live in Colorado, and I have to agree.

It's one of the most pure places in the US.

Yeah, but usually that water is boiled in my kettle, used for tea. If I am thirsty, then I'd have the boiled water which would be cooled in time, typically.

This is kind of random, but it popped into mind. Where I live, in Colorado, we have great tap water, but I know that's not the case everywhere. I know for a fact that tap water in Mexico can make you sick, not to mention its greenish tint.

Feel free to post where you live too. I would be very interested to see that info. Be as general as you want with the location if you're not comfortable giving a specific city.

NOTE: The difference between answers 3 and 4 is whether you avoid tap water to be safer/healthier, or whether you avoid it because it really does make people sick, like Mexican water.



Oh my gosh, you live in Colorado too? and it's true we have amazing tap water here... well except for Commerce City. Their tap water is terrible
