This is not whether you agree or not with bottled water. But if you buy it this might be worth considering. No special offer labels at my local Tesco Extra.

Sorry ammended, to the best of my knowledge this is instore only.

By any chance is economy water simply tap water?

This can't be cost effective for Tesco.

Like I said. If you already buy it then it's cheaper than the price you may pay at other supermarkets. Simples..:)

It's just tap water.

Maybe, but you get a free bottle with it!

Bottle must cost 4p..... good job the water is free... you plonka!

It may just be tap water, but it tastes a damn site better than the water from the tap where I work, so I tend to take a bottle of this with me to drink during the day. Have some heat!

EDIT: And given the fact that my taps at home were frozen solid for about a week this time last year I might well stash a few bottles away in case the same happens this year.

With rising fuel costs how do they transport something weighing 2kg let alone make the bottle, fill it up and charge VAT on it.
I'm thinking out of date cola bottles rinsed, then filled with rain water instore.

Because it's the most environmentally wasteful thing you can buy. Instead of getting it free from a tap (via very efficient plumbing system) you instead have it sent halfway across the country via a vehicle using diesel/petrol, dropped off at a supermarket, then you drive to the supermarket, drive home, probably stick it in the fridge etc. The energy cost is hundreds of times higher than getting it out of a tap.

Of course all drinks are like this, but you can't get Coke from the tap.

I am sticking with schweppes atm for the free swim caps 47p for a 500ml bottle of water and free access to the pool, steam room and sauna at my local health club. Can't beat that deal!

P.S. they should charge a huge tax on bottled water, then perhaps people will think before buying it.

Oh, and obviously this is just filtered tapwater. Which has been sitting in a plastic bottle on a shelf for weeks/months. Om nom nom....

P.S. I have some bags of Fresh Air you can buy, they are 2 litre bags, contain 21% oxygen guaranteed. 5p each, £3 delivery.

So when I'm 2 hours in to a 5 hour gig in the back end of nowhere, with not a tap in miles, what do you suggest I drink? Oh, I know, that bag of fresh air of yours will do the job...

Title says 4p, price says £0.40. Which is it?

Coke, perhaps Pepsi. Or if you must drink water, why not fill it from a tap before you set out?

Do I need to think of everything?

P.S. do you really carry 2 litre bottles of water around with you?

Taxes are how we pay for civilization. Bottled water has no benefits, it's a con, ergo it shouldn't be encouraged.

this is brilliant! 4p for a delivered to store bottle of water, including vat - packaging and cost of production. 4p is good!

have you ever had a night out? you need to rehydrate yourself. why is there always at least 1 person who collapses at a gig? thats right, they can't afford to buy the water there.

and filcee i didnt realise there was any places that still let you bring in your own water oO

What has any of that got to do with buying water from a supermarket as opposed to getting it from a tap. You just wrote that you can't bring in any water anyway, so that kind of makes everything else moot. That means your point is pointless, btw.

have you ever had a night out? you need to rehydrate yourself.



No false advertising please LOL:
I know loads of fools who have carried water round for years, when tap water won every test just because they are taken in by advertising. This recent news made me laugh: - EU officials concluded that, following a three-year investigation, there was no evidence to prove water rehydrates.
Producers of bottled water are now forbidden by law from making the claim and will face a two-year jail sentence if they defy the edict, which comes into force in the UK next month.

Watch out for cans of fresh air coming out early next year.

A gig as in a music gig? where there is a legal obligation to provide a water source?

Even where there is a charge for it, if a person is in danger of dehydrating / collapsing etc etc the
water has to be provided free of charge. Much the same licensing requirements that's in pubs etc

There were four statements, three of which you can't disagree with because they are facts. The last one I will let you disagree with, if you want to encourage people to waste money and resources on bottles of H2O.

I suggest next time you take some bloody tap water with you, you've obviously bought bottled water already, so you should have an empty bottle to use (or do you wastefully throw them away with your money?).

That's what those of us with common sense do.

If you think buying bottled water should be encouraged, then maybe someone SHOULD be deciding what is worthwhile for you, as you are obviously clueless.

Good price,much cheaper than our tap water and better quality too!

It's bad to reuse water bottles because the chemicals wash into the water. Stop encouraging dangerous behavior...

Why should I care? Seriously, at the moment I couldn't even care less if I tried. Keep driving your polluting car, wasting energy with your central heating, dumping your plastic into landfills, eating fruit from halfway around the world, ordering your ebay crap from china, but as long as you hate on bottled water it makes you morally superior to the rest of us.

Don't make me laugh.

Tesco bottled water (the 2l bottles for about 12p) are more than likely either filtered, or tap water from a place in the country with naturally nice water. My tap water has huge amounts of lime scale, use it in the kettle once and your kettle is ruined (unless you like to eat bits of crunch water in your drinks).

Decent bottled water is far cheaper than filtering your own water with those overpriced Britta or similar filters.

Has anyone tried using this in a kettle and boiling it? I found the Morrisons and Asda waters are bad quality, is this just the usual Tesco bottled water at a reduced cost?

So much rage over 4p water, you're all crazy.

So you live with hard water and you think everyone uses bottled water I sure as hell dont, If it mattered that much then you would think about it (or use google) and find out you could use a filter that you plumb into the system not buy bottled water for the kettle.

Do you also give your water heater bottled water to protect it from limescale? oh and simple thing for a kettle is go to a supermarket buy a mettal ball you drop it in the kettle and it picks up the limescale... though bottled water might be easier

Oh and if you are getting the limescale in your drink the filter at the spout was missing when bought or so old it disintegrated... get a new kettle
