Saw these in Asda in Shaw Oldham.
Not sure if it's all stores.
Looks like a good price to me regardless if you own a cooler.

Not sure what water it is but Tesco, Asda and Lidl plus others I assume have 2 litre bottles for 17p each. Suspect Asda are just trying to cash in on the coming pre-apocalypse
Water? Hmmmmm? Let me think.....? Got it! TAP!
Conclusion from this people about drinkable water:
tappwater.co/en/can-i-drink-tap-water-in-london-2/

  • Bottled water is one of the biggest food and health scams in recent history. It’s a waste of money, our nature and it’s not healthier.
  • Drink tap water at home and wherever you go.
  • If you don’t like the taste of tap water, get a high quality water filter such as TAPP 1.
  • Get a refillable bottle such as Retap and keep it filled up with fresh tap water.
  • Ask for tap water in restaurants and never feel ashamed about it.
  • Refuse bottled water whenever there’s an option.
I can't believe that users on a site dedicated to SAVING money are talking about drinking tap water, and presumably paying the astronomical fees the water companies charge. I get up at 05:30 every morning and crawl round my local park on my hands and knees licking dew of the grass - delicious, refreshing and FREE!

How is buying water, at a ridiculous price compared to tap, any sort of deal at all?
Ridiculous.
Well as you know a hosepipe ban is due.
Not only that the water pressure will drop and the water board will regulate the water.
I feel this is a good idea to have just incase.

Hello everyone.
I have very confusing question to ask ?

Why people order online so much of water bottles in summer time?
I'm delivery driver for major retail company.
The amount of water bottles were ordered are way too much like the customers lives in African dry land or without tap in UK....
Average customer orders like 5bottles of 5litres i.e 25 Litres of water for average customer.

The highest water I delivered to one customer is 51bottles of 4pack of 2L water ....
Which is 8L × 51 bottles = 408 Litres of just water..... I think may be the family was waiting water for having shower

Anything other than mild weather drives a lot of Brits loopy. Snow? The world is going to end. Heatwave? It's the apocalypse. We're a "worst case scenario" country. The glass is most definitely half empty. At the mere mention of a possible ban on the use of hosepipes, people assume we're about to run out of drinking water.

I just checked Severn Trent Water's website. Their reservoirs were 71.4% full three days ago...

Pressure is lower (if Mrs C puts a wash on while I'm showering, it slows to a dribble annoyingly) but they text us to advise about it.

How long before someone moans that we should store more water in reservoirs?

Water? Hmmmmm? Let me think.....? Got it! TAP!


20p per litre?

I have a filter jug in the fridge, lovely cooool water... from the TAP in place of my 17p per 2Ltr sugar free Lemonade... I've not been able to get fer the past 3 weeks, so where as I may be feelin hot hot hot, I'm still keepin COOL COOL COOL, and hope yall are too
Ridiculous.
If your tap water tastes weird, filter it. Loads of cheap filters out there.
Splash in a alittle concenstrate juice or whatever to make it taste better if you want...
Go round the back of Asda and you will see someone filling these big bottles from the tap.....

Yep. Tap water no plastic, no fuel costs to collect or deliver and probably more hygienic too. Unless we are going out it is tap water all the time - especially as we are paying rip-off Anglian Water for it anyway.
I can't believe that users on a site dedicated to SAVING money are talking about drinking tap water, and presumably paying the astronomical fees the water companies charge. I get up at 05:30 every morning and crawl round my local park on my hands and knees licking dew of the grass - delicious, refreshing and FREE!
I buy water every week, you all talk about tap water being free, and free it may be, but it is also disgustingly bad in taste.

I cannot stomach tap water. It tastes metallic and is just generally unpleasant. For all the conspiracy theorists out there I'd like to know why the water tastes so massively different from a bottle than my tap at home, if all these supermarkets were doing is filling them 'round the back'. - Which having spent my early adulthood working for a huge retail chain, I can confirm, is utter nonsense.

There is every possibility that bottled water is just filtered tap water on a larger scale - but isn't that what you are paying for in the first place? Someone else's water to pour into a big bottle, clean and filtered and packaged nicely and shipped out to you? Isn't that consumerism? I.E The same as any other product in history?

No wonder theres a water shortage if they filling all these up lol

Get a filter fitted the water will taste amazing
People butt hurt on here about not just using tap water. Some people can taste the difference and want to. This is a good deal. Stop being such a peasant.

I think your missing the point somewhat. Bottled water contributes massively to the already huge single use plastics problem. If you want to pay twice for water then it's upto you. But since clean fresh water is available from the tap then just refill your own reusable bottle from it. Also the metal taste that people mention will differ from the taste of bottled water as it hasn't been left in a plastic bottle for some time.

I am not missing the point - This is a money saving website used as a community based platform to help each other save money. This is not eco warriors forum weekly.

I am not paying twice for water. I shower in the water that comes out of my house, I drink the water that comes out of the bottle.
Frankly I couldn't care less about the 'plastic crisis'. If people disposed of/recycled their waste like they were supposed to then it wouldn't be such a huge problem. We don't ban cigarettes yet it pollutes the air, and there is a very large majority of people who smoke and cause more pollution damage to the environment than a single plastic bottle can cause. We don't ban cars because it's convenient. We don't concern ourselves with a carbon footprint or consider our effect on global warming, why are people getting so uppity about plastics, and why isn't every other seriously harmful economy effect being addressed with the same level of intolerance??
as a gardener, these would make an excellent closhe for my plants in spring, and much cheaper

As long as your ok then. Just because you couldn't care less, alot of us do.
Yes it is a money saving forum and you would save more money by refilling a reusable bottle from the tap at home, work, Waitrose or Wetherspoons! And whilst saving money you would also be doing your bit to reduce the use of single use plastics.

I earn enough money to not be arsed about a few quid every week making sure I'm drinking water that I actually like the taste of. I saw the huge amount of water for cheap. Noted it was a good deal and moved on with my life. I suggest you now do the same.
Not much difference in price to United Utilities tap water. My bills from them work out as 16p per litre and this is 20p. Main downside is the plastic used and wasted on bottled water.
Cold because its a massive waste of plastic and resources.

16p per litre? How did you work that out? A cubic metre of water from the tap is around £1.70 depending on who supplies it. A cubic metre is 1000 litres. When you calculate the whole cost per litre of water, which includes supply and waste it is still less than 1p per litre!
Yes, I've included all the standard fixed charges in my calc. It's probably because I don't use a lot of water so my price per unit is quite high.
