Good price but i hate the taste of spring water;-), much prefer mineral water.

Spring water is tap water...

Tap water is processed, purified and flouride added.
Cheapest in my area is 39p +BOGOFF in Wilkinsons

That used to be true, but due to labelling regulations introduced a few years ago they are no longer allowed to treat tap water and call it 'spring water'.

Spring water is collected directly from the spring where it arises from the ground and must be bottled at the source. UK sources of spring water must meet certain hygiene standards, but may be treated in order that they meet limits set on pollution.

Mineral water emerges from under the ground, then flows over rocks before it's collected, resulting in a higher content of various minerals. Unlike spring water, it can't be treated except to remove grit and dirt. Different brands of spring and mineral waters will have differing amounts of minerals depending on their source.

That being said, I still wouldn't waste my money on any bottled water, there's no proven health benefits.

Hot deal.
These are perfect if you are going on a long journey or out for the day and at 10p you cannot complain.

buy one bottle, then just keep filling it from your tap.. :thumbsup:

Bottled water is the biggest con of our time. Especially when living in a country where it rains a lot and has just had record rainfall over the past year.

great price tho!

I had the water board quality inspector take water samples from my taps last year. He does this every day and takes water samples from domestic water supplies. He said the best way to get good drinking water is to take water from the tap, then put it in a bottle without a top, then put it in the fridge over night. This lets the chlorine evaporate away from the water. Once taken out of the fridge it needs drinking within 3 days. Also for a good cup of tea put the water in the kettle one hour before making a brew. This is not perfect because although the chlorine evaporates away, some of the dissolved oxygen will evaporates also.

I suppose this offer is a fair price for something that is naturally occurring and they just have to stick in a bottle.

It annoys me at places like petrol and train stations when it's getting on for a couple of quid a bottle.

cold, buying bottled water is plain stupid.

Selling bottled water in this country is like selling ice to the Eskimos.

not when your getting a sports top! or if you are wanting to leave some in a car, bag etc... as you know the expirey date!

But tap water in some areas tastes disgusting. In my area its lovely, but when I go to my boyfriends house It tastes horrid so we drink bottled there. This is a hot deal as at the minute the cheapest we have seen is £1 for 6 in Iceland! Thanks!

Buy both and then go home and do a blind taste test with tap water and see if you can tell the difference.

If anything the tap water should taste fresher because it hasn't been stagnating in a bottle in all temperatures for months on end.

Well if they didn't sell bottled water, I wouldn't know where to get bottles to put my own water in. lol.
I don't like using long lasting bottles/containers, because they change the taste of the water.

Plus there is a clear different between mineral/spring/tap water...any body that has tried tap water and volvic, will know volvic has a sweeter sharper taste. That said, I prefer tap water. Tastes the best. Evian out of all the bottled water I've tasted, tastes closest to tap water that others. So i buy these bottles everynow and again to refill. I never use one more than a month. I've heard stories about the plastic linings breaking down etc...

Bit of a generalisation isn't it?
You must love drinking all sorts of nasty chemicals:-)

On that logic buying any food stuff is stupid when you can make it yourself!
Ever bought anything other than raw ingredients? Plain stupid that! :-)

refreshing to hear of so many fellow tap water drinkers. Bottled water is crazy especially imported,generally high in radiation and full of impurities. Plus the cost of plastic bottles and transporting is lunacy, you gain nothing but a bigger carbon footprint.

only water i ever buy is fizzy. the rest comes from my tap (via my fridage/water filter)

I agree when you can get to a tap - drink from that, however if you're out and about, at work, uni etc I'd much rather throw a bottle of water in the car then buy a bottle of coke or another full sugar drink.


Voted hot! (...but drink from a tap if you're in your house :P)

Bottled water is just emperor's new clothes territory. Just another analogy I thought i'd throw in. :-D

bottled water is a good idea but you shold refil the bottles as well i think. I work for morrisons and we have bottled water from finland why does it need to come from so far away? i watched a program on it a few years ago and even the manufacturers say there is no difference between the brands. All this about volvic being sweeter and sharper cant possibly be true more a case of marketing i think

Perhaps Morrisons get a special deal coz it's still got a high radiation rate from the Chernobyl fallout.

Oops, I better be careful. I'm subbing for Morrisons at the moment.

I too, used to think the same as you, that bottled water was a cpm, evian, backwards anyone? yes, naive.

But then i moved to Birmingham, and i can't drink the tap water here, it gives me a terrible trapped wind feeling, so now i buy bottled water from Costco

Bottled water from the right source is a very worthwhile product if you want to avoid sodium biosulphate, sodium hydroxide and chlorine, plus nitrates and the occasional kryptosporidium outbreak.

I taste the chlorine in tap water and find it repulsive, a brita or the filter on my american fridge dispenser improves it a bit but the bottled water is still better.

I am careful to get certain trusted bottles though, I don't think I will go for these but hot for those that want it.

Tap water is clean but at a cost. There is certainly nothing wrong with bottled water and only those who like the taste of chemicals (or have no palate) would say otherwise.

I buy one bottle of evian a week then refill it for the rest of the week lol.

Its not dasani is it?

we all no that water is vital to are well being but did you no that your recommended fluid intake is 8 glasses of water a day which is 1.5 litres in total or there abouts..

I think that water intake figure has recently been proven to be of no value at all and complete nonsense.

A balanced diet and stay hydrated yes, but it's not essential to consume vast amounts of water on a daily basis to stay healthy.

1.5litres a vast amount?

The majority of water should come from your food, but the type of foods most people eat now (especially supermarket "Value Added" ready-meals) are so nutritionally void that people need to drink liquids.

1.5litres a day is the minimum needed for survival (an "average" person loses ~700ml through perspiration and 500ml through urination). Someone who eats lots of fresh fruit and vegetables can receive all that through food without drinking anything.
