    hey everyone

    just wondering how many people drink tap water and whether its good or bad for you. i cant afford to buy so much mineral water a week, so i drink tap but ive heard its got so many chemicals in it. does anyone use those water filters and are they good?

    thanx

    I drink tap water ....

    When i go down to my parents in Kent and my SIL in Middlesex they filter their water ...

    I do like soda water which I mix with the orange water flavouring and tastes like old fashioned lemonade.

    6 litres of tap water every day!

    I put it through a Brita water filter (dead cheap!)

    Tastes lovely and not fallen over yet.

    I use a water filter and as I live in a hard water area it makes a lot of difference. I drink 6 pints of this per day and then 2 pints of the cheapest shop brand sparkling water with water flavourings in it for a treat towards the end of the day.

    When doing LL Development I liked tap water (boiled in the kettle) with a tiny bit of lemon water flavouring. Now I have the hot water flavoured with lemon or lime juice.

    Occasionally by Tesco's value sparkling water as a change (I think it's 11p a 2 litre bottle)

    Like many others I drink tap water in the day and v chaep sparkling water at night as a treat! Can't afford mineral water on top of the LL expense!!

    Be careful with drinking bathroom water as one of my dad's neighbours became very ill from it.. his came from a tank in the loft..

    I drink both tap and mineral. Mineral normally at work where I don't have to pay for it (goodness, are they getting through the water since started LL!!).

    I find the tap water tastes better if it's been in the fridge for a while - not for too long as it then makes it more difficult to drink.

    Yup, 5-6 litres of tap water for me, unfiltered. I seem to be okay so far!

    Tap for me too - four litres at work then another 1.5-2 at home. When I go out I drink soda water as a) its free and b) I like it!

    I drink bottled water and usually buy the brand thats on BOGOF offer that particular week. The only 'treat' I have on this diet is my bottled water (sad I know) so I make sure that I have my order in with Tesco's so I don't feel left out! Angela x

    I buy 2 litre mineral water for the week and drink 1 bottle a day. I drink the first 2 ltrs then fill up either from Brita filter or tap for second 2 ltrs.

    I drink tap water at home as the water here is very good but at work (which is 35 miles away) I always drink bottled as the water is horrid, it goes all cloudy and stays that way for a few minutes - really don't want that in my stomach.

    Mineral water tastes funny......:confused::confused::confused: I'm forever emptying out mineral water from new bottles so I can put tap water in. :crazy:

    Maybe the hard water/soft water makes a big difference....never really had hard water. :)
