    Evian spelled backwards is naïve.

    Too bad most of that water has been proven to be worthless. She’s better off just drinking tap water. lol

    Back in the 60s was the first time that I heard about our planet’s water problems. I remember thinking how ridiculous. How could they make us buy water? lol It’s true most bottled water is worthless, but I would not drink our local tap water. It stinks and tastes terrible. So we drink Crystal Geyser. It is water that flows from Mt. Shasta, Ca.

    So buy a filter & put it on your faucet. Or better yet, get a whole-house filter.

    I have a water filter. Tap water tastes wrong somehow.

    I want to not be thirsty. What will take care of that?

    Here we are 11 years later and the number of types of water and energy bars is even larger. Could never figure out why it became trendy to drink certain brands of water over others.

    I will admit to occasionally drinking bottled water – bought in cases of 12 or 24 bottles at the local supermarket – usually the lowest prices ones. The bottles are convenient for on the road or working in a theatre where drinking water is not always available. At home, tap water – although I do use an in-pitcher filter and let it sit in the fridge for a while to allow the chlorine to evaporate.

    There are ‘barnacle-like’ things in my tap water. They attach to and eat through the thin copper pipes in the new houses, and they grow in my metal fountains on my front porch.

    I use a PUR water filter on 1 tap and PUR water filter pitchers for any consumption of water in our house.

    That’s terrible! Our tap water is fine, but there are some who suspect they overuse the chlorine and it’s eating up the copper pipes. I’ve had 3 pinhole leaks in copper pipes in my basement, and today I had the “honor” of finding a 4th in the wall of my dining room. We woke up this morning to find a bunch of outlets in our top floor not working, so when my husband went in the basement to check out the electric panel, he found water dripping on it and the ceiling in the adjacent bathroom ready to cave in. I almost had a panic attack.

    Luckily I told the right person at my church, who has a friend who is a contractor. After some troubleshooting and holes cut into walls, we found at least one pinhole leak (and most likely another hiding behind a stud) that has been temporarily fixed. Tomorrow we get the joy of more holes and more pipes replaced. The guy who found and is fixing the problem said that more and more are encountering this problem in this area, so he suspects it’s due to more caustic water. I read our water company’s inspection reports and they always pass with flying colors, but I tend to agree with the chlorine theory.
    p.s. I can’t deal with any more stress! I think I’m going to lose my mind! :-O

    We have pretty foul smelling well water which also contains low levels of arsenic. Not drinking tap water. We buy cheap water at Whole Foods where they use bottles that don’t leach chemicals into the water if they get cold or hot. We have a whole house filter and are going to install filters at each tap so we can at least use tap water for cooking and brushing our teeth without worrying. Oh yes, we also have an arsenic filter, and we’re going to install an iron filter.
