Terrible deal seeing as water is free from the tap...

I know this is a significant reduction but compared with the alternative (paying nothing) this surely can't be hot?!

I agree, why buy bottled water in the UK when the stuff that comes out of the tap is potable?

Ps. It isn't totally free because someone pays the water bill.
#10
Tesco value water is 13p
#11
cool, cheers, off lidl in a bit...
#12
I'm with the "wtf" people. I guess it's a good price for this product, so not voting either way, but anyone who pays for water when it's effectively free from the tap must have a washer loose.
I know water taste varies across the country, but we're lucky in the UK to be able to drink tap water safely. Numerous studies have also shown it to be better for you than the bottled stuff (as it is more tightly controlled, would you believe).

the offer start on 05/October/2009

So if you go now, it's going to be full price, it's not on offer yet.

great price, I'm going to stock up. drink lots of water when going gym or playing badminton.
it's just so much more convenient in a bottle. I don't trust tap water until I filter it through a Brita jug.
#14
Plenty of water in the tap...

Sorry thats just a bit of bait for a light argument
#15
Water for 20p, wow that's brill!!!!!!!!!
#16
I've heard it's watered down.

Well maybe 0.1p per litre.

You can imagine the people wasting their money on bottled water are also the ones moaning about the congestion on the motorways caused by all those lorries carting bottled water around...

i have always used tap water, until recently. The water from the tap has a very funny taste that now makes me want to throw up. It wasnt like that before and i had no problem with it, and this may not be the case in other areas, but where i live it tastes quite foul, so i have started drinking bottle water now and usually buy tescos 5 litre water bottle for 93p, thats the cheapest bottled water i have come across. This is effectively 6 litres for 80p, so im voting hot.

Why don't you use a water filter then - what's that, about 1p per litre?

Filtered water is more of a hassle than its worth, i only drink bottled water and i think it probably costs me about £3 a week to do this. Thats the price of a pint of beer these days!

Great deal this

How on earth can buying a filter for every 300 litres of water and filling your filter jug from the tap be more hassle than carting water around from the supermarket in bottles?

And you're using huge amounts of energy to do so. Think how much fuel is used to cart that water around by lorry and the amount of plastic you are consuming for all the bottles (whether recycled or not - recycling takes a large amount of energy too).

I shop online so Tesco deliver it to my door. I do have to carry the bottles to the fridge which i admit does annoy me a bit but I can't have everything. As for the fuel used to cart the water around I must admit i don't lose sleep over it!

how long does it take the water to get treated once placed in the jug? Dont you have to 'wear' the cartridge in?

I guess its convenience, i store my water in the fridge, sometimes in the freezer, so dont like delays in between. Whats the capacity of the jug? I dont think theres space in the fridge for a jug either
#31



Its a terrible idea, and why do a vote on it? The people who vote ban it wouldn't buy the water anyway so it seems like the whole thing is just to victimise the people who want to buy bottled water! As with most things its just a gimmick by an obscure small little place to try and get into the news! Its a bit pathetic really

About a minute. Once you've poured water out, you refill from the tap and it immediately starts to filter it so the time it takes is irrelevant.
Dont you have to 'wear' the cartridge in?
They say throw away the first lot but I take that to be paranoia and don't bother.
I guess its convenience, i store my water in the fridge, sometimes in the freezer, so dont like delays in between.
No delays; why do you freeze it? Takes a lot of electricity to do that which is wasted unless you want to use it as ice.
Whats the capacity of the jug?
Depends on the jug - Google is your friend.

Lots of jugs are designed to fit in fridge doors.

Or you could equally argue that the people who do buy it are victimising everyone else through their ludicriously irresponsible use of resources and generation of greenhouse gases.

Do you think we should go the way of the Irish and charge for polythene bags at all shops?

Well we could argue all day about the responsibilty of drinking tap water over bottle water but at the end of the day its down to people's personal preference what they want to drink and 20p for a 1.5 litre bottle of Buxton is good value. This deal should be voted hot as in relation to the price of the product at other stores it is very cheap, the forum is called hotukdeals and is not a forum on how to save the planet

To be honest i don't see the point of charging for polythene bags at stores, its just a way of making profit for the supermarkets and must have no real impact on bag usage. Its going to take alot more than the price of 2p a bag to make me go to the hassle of bringing my own bags into a supermarket with me. Lets face it, its always the weirdo's at the Supermarket who have there own bags with them! Besides as previously stated i do most of my shopping online so the bag usage is down to Tesco!

If you're going to look at it that way then the hot deal is undoubtedly to use filters rather than waste your money on bottled water - just like the hot deal is to use rechargeable batteries in most cases rather than disposables. But people still want to throw their money away for some unfathomable reason.

That's not the case at all - the money goes to government (tax) not the retailer. Moreover, those who don't use "free" bags at supermarkets are simply subsidising those who do by paying more for their goods - one of the reasons why the likes of Lidl can charge less.
and must have no real impact on bag usage.
Erm no, it's cut their use by 90%!
Its going to take alot more than the price of 2p a bag to make me go to the hassle of bringing my own bags into a supermarket with me.
That's why it will cost more than 2p, and I'd much rather you paid for the plastic bag use rather than me.
Lets face it, its always the weirdo's at the Supermarket who have there own bags with them!
Amusingly, you'll turn round one day and realise you are the weirdo.
Besides as previously stated i do most of my shopping online so the bag usage is down to Tesco!
(So why are you so sure that you wouldn't be bothered to take your own bags?) Ocado already take back the bags they supply. Abel and Cole (and others) provide goods in boxes which are returned. Tesco could do the same.

You and me could argue about this all the time and there will be no winners as we both think the other is wrong! I was going to mention the battery thing as a matter of interest as everytime someone posts a good price for batteries theres always a group of people who start banging on about rechargeable batteries but thats not the point of the deal. The posted deal is in my opinion to inform people who use this site where they can pick up a product at the cheapest possible price. People aren't idiots and they know water filters exist and they know rechargeable batteries exist there is no point banging on about these products when people find good deals for related items! Take the Buxton mineral water deal, its a good deal its 20p a bottle which is a great price, do you honestly think that people don't realise they can drink the water from the tap for free? Some people just prefer bottled water, and being preached to by people like you who go on about the environment is just a bit irritating!

Also i find it unlikely that in the future i will feel left out in a supermarket as i don't have a used bag in my pocket!
