It's just water, really.

Never seen Voss but I have had Fiji.

That's the thing. I don't respect the idea of drinking bottled water unless there's a legit reason.

not often, but sometimes, ours smells like raw sewage when it comes out of the tap, and the iron is so high that the color is occasionally brown/reddish.

The water system in Los Angeles is OLD. Pipes that blow up under pressure causing sink holes in city streets, pipes rusted through in places letting dirt and parasites in, not to mention old pipes in old buildings, all add to the crapiness of tap water in this town. They catch people throwing trash into the reservoir, or urinating into the reservoir all of the time, so who knows what could happen if a terrorist gets to it....

That's why I use a britta filter at the tap to use the water. Even then, it tastes crappy compared to bottled water. I use the filtered tap to make iced tea, and to cook, but I'll only drink bottled water as straight water. I've had Fiji water, and Asani, and store brand water.... They all taste the same to me. So, I think it's all about marketing.

I buy distilled water..delivered to my house. I don't see the point of buying water bottles every day. I just take water in a bottle from home, to work.

Ours sometimes comes out misty whiteish. I'm not even in a rural area, our lakes are just filthy, full of mud and waste often thrown in there by humans. the people at utilities / the water treatment plants really don't bother to make it taste half decent.

no thanks.

I am rural-ish, so it's kinda expected, but that... I have no clue what would cause that shit.

this is absolutely ridiculous, I never understood the people who spend $2 , $3, or $4 dollars on special water especially at a store, I see it as a waste of money. You can buy store brand and they all taste themselves, all water has some kind of impurities and chemical in them, so none is 100% pure. your better off drinking fountain water (which is free) or getting some kind of refreshment.

Important note: Don't reuse bottled water, they have some kind of chemical in them that can cause a lot of delirious side effects in the future. I learned this in my genetics class. The chemical is BPA and make sure your water bottle is BPA free since you are going to use it multiple times.

They all taste the same to me That reminds me, someone recently told me that drinking form plastic water bottles will give me cancer. I haven't bothered to confirm that, and what doesn't give you cancer now a days anyway?

I could see plastic being a carcinogen if you smoked it (as with most things, really. Inhaling anything 'non-standard' tends to be a bad idea), but consuming something that's come into contact with it? Pretty skeptical on that one. I mean, finding a food stuff that has never been in contact with plastic must be kinda tricky.

As for bottled water, it's a rip off but I generally look at it as paying for convenience. If I'm out and about and need a drink, I don't always have a) an empty bottle and b) a tap, so I'll gladly drop a bit of cash on a bottle of nice cool clean water. Would never touch the stuff at home though.
