Great price
Better to use Aquaphor Cartridge Maxfor B100-25, then Maxtra. Maxfor filter the water better, personal experience. The jug no matter

I can definatley notice the difference between tap water and this, tend to drink more as well.
As to comparing to bottle water I can't say.

Absolutely yes. Buy one now. One less person buying buying water from a supermarket will make a difference. The Uk tap water is the cleanest in the world. Makes me seeth in supermarket queues and I see a belt full of bottled water. I've given up asking them why, as most don't speak English. If you can't afford one of these just put some tap water in an empty bottle and leave it in the fridge overnight to let the chlorine gas to evaporate

Lol, I didn't really have a choice. I moved cities and became very ill and I got advised to switch to bottle water ... whether it's the cleanest or not it can still effect some. People have ther own valid reasons for purchasing bottle water. Not everyone means harm to the enviroment!

It's a myth. Tap water is only as good as the pipes it goes through. It may be ok in your building, but not in your neighbour's and most definitely different in another area or city. It can be very easily contaminated by a small crack in the pipeline - with pesticides and all sorts of crap that people poison the soil with.

You are also being inconsiderate to people who have genuine health reasons or even a taste preference to drink mineral or spring water. If you walked up to me and asked me why I buy the stuff I do, I would tell you to mind your own f-ing business.

Apparently bottled water can have more bacteria than tap water. But the main concern is micro plastics, that bottled water has.

Water comes to your house (UK) at a relatively high pressure. If there is a leak then the water is going to exit the pipeline & not enter it due to Its positive pressure. The only chance to get contaminates from the ground into the water is if you have next to no pressure.

The thing I do is use an activated charcoal inline filter for my refrigerator and a jug for the kettle to remove chlorine, calcium carbonate etc

I drink tap water. If the water smells of chlorine then let it stand for a short while as works well. I use my Brita for kettle and coffee machine as significantly reduces the lime scale build up.

UK's tap water being the cleanest in the world. It's just something that people have been repeating for years but is actually not true at all. UK is not even in the top 5, some rankings not even top 10 - just Google it.

Again I suggest doing some research before commenting on the topic. Damaged pipelines can lead to water contamination and some damage is not as obvious as you would imagine. A quick Google will give you some answers.

Most recent research indicates that microplastics do no harm to human body. Study suggests that it is being fully disposed of by our digestive system.

Here's an idea! You could get a Brita Water Filter. Hopefully a deal might come along soon.

I do use one. I am only calling bs on all of the "facts" that were posted in this topic and are untrue. You sir fight a good cause However you need to understand that you will fail to educate people because you are yourself uneducated in the topic. Now look objectively, would you trust your opinion? Even though ultimately I know you mean well by encouraging people to use less plastic, I will always speak against people like you who spread fake news. No offence, just step up your game if you wish to publicly scold other people for their choices.

Hi, sorry I think you mean contaminants from the actual pipeline itself? So lead if the pipeline is made of lead, etc

If there is positive pressure in a pipe, no external contaminants should be able to get in the water under any circumstances.

38619172-MRL25.jpgThe red is down to most of the UK,s veg is grown in that area but that has no relevance to tap water.

See a a pattern here?

I have searched google but cannot find a league table of water quality. I think the fake unsubstantiated spreading is actually from you.

38619172-gssvt.jpgSince publishing this article, we were sent counter statements by the embassies of Hungary and Slovakia stating: ‘Hungarian and Slovakian standards are in full compliance with the EU’s Drinking Water Directive and tap water is regularly tested against strict hygienic standards to produce highest quality drinking water.

So where is my fake news that drinking tap water is safe?

Literally first result in my search.

I honestly do not see the point in taking this argument further as clearly you are only interested in winning it for the sake of it rather than proving any meaningful point.

Correct and not correct at the same time. It is a common misconception that positive pressure will keep everything out. Normally it would, but there are circumstances where it's not maintained and even negative pressure (suction) is created. There are numerous studies on this available online if you wish to read more about it.

Yes it is. You are just scaremongering, saying tap water isn't safe to drink without anything to substantially back up your claims. I get the hydraulics bit but what are these contaminates and how many people are getting ill from this contaminated water.
How did the DWI get it so wrong?

Again, I am not saying that tap water is not safe to drink, lol. I agree that whoever can and doesn't mind the taste should do it. I also agree that bottled water is bad for the environment.

You attacked a certain group of people in your original post and was slightly racist there by saying it's always the foreigners. So I have called you out on a few statements being untrue to challenge you. It turns out you're not so clever yourself! Have you forgotten how to read? Do you really not see the difference between saying "UK's tap water is the cleanest in the world" and "UK's tap water is safe to drink"? Being compliant doesn't make something the best in the world. My nasty diesel Vauxhall Astra is 100% compliant with EU directives, does it make it the most eco-friendly car in the world? No it doesn't

As I said in one of the previous comments I am done with posting links, proving anything to you as you refuse to listen to logic. Go ahead and believe what you like. I am out

Thank you for the links you did provide.

I hope you don't go away from the thread thinking we all refused to believe.

I work in the industry and was asking so I can push for changes where I see there are potential problems.
