    Has anyone tried FIJI water? I though it was ok, until I tried my city water, and it tasted like a swimming pool because of the chlorine. I really like Fiji water now, but it's $2 a liter!!!! Anyone else tried this stuff???:confused:

    Another thing, dont waste your time with water purifiers etc. If you dont like chlorine fill a pitcher and let it sit over night in the fridge. It will ice cold and the chlorine in the water will evaporate.

    I really like Fiji water. To me it is definitely the best tasting bottled water. It's not very common though in any of the places I have lived in Texas. I wouldn't pay for it regularly anyway because while it tastes good other water tastes good too for less money..filtered or otherwise.

    Well, down south, if you fill a bath tub, you can't see the bottom. purified water is a must. I drink nothing but clean, clear water. no coke or any thing else in 2 years!

    A little $5 filteror even $20 filter isnt going to touch lead. Those filters use carbon which "slime" over in a few days. Carbon will only pull out chemicals, not impurities or heavy metals.(not the Slip Knot kind)
     
  15. gatorade tastes better.
    and it quenches your thirst better, too.

    gatorade....H2O.....GAAAtorade.....H20!.......GAAAAAATORADE......H20!!!.......the water sucks, it really really sucks!!

    Well, anyways, our water comes from underground lakes and without the chlorine, it would most likey taste as good. But the minerals that are in it make it taste different. I don't know, it's good.
     
  18. I think they should make a prismatic water bottle.

    Or one in a pyramid.

    I'd pay two bucks for that.

    Cuz, after all, it's the bottle that matters.

    I got a water purifier a few years ago, and have never looked back. Tap just tastes so nasty.
     
  20. I have one of those Pur filter things on the spout in my kitchen sink. It may look like the spout is growing a tumor, but the water comes out nice and clean.
