Use a shower head or shower tap, the smaller streams make the clorine evaporate you idiot

You're a ******* idiot, if you ever had a shower head tap you would know, you can 1. smell the ******* chlorine evaporating 2. taste the ******* water taste as pure as a blonde-haired, blue-eyed, white-skinned virgin.

I've tasted the shower water before and it tastes the exact same as the tap water.  You don't live in my house, you've no idea what you're going on about. do drink your pure shower tap water, I'll keep my bottles, thank you.

Yea my dad used to drink nothing but bottled water, and then he got a water filter, tastes 10x better, and is 100x cheaper. But if you prefer bottled, you prefer bottled, I personally think they all have different tastes, and bottled water is pretty gross.

Yes, because the puddles outside my house are perfectly safe to drink.
And my bad, I forgot the river Thames was so sanitary and well filtered.
These are the exact same thing.

And in 45 states in America, tap water is technically deemed "unsafe" to drink.
So, although it's a nice point that these people make and the production of the placstic is a terrible thing, I can't help but think this is a terrible principle upon which to base their argument.

I believe GeeTeeEffOhh was referencing the results of the 2009 executive summary of the Environmental Working Group. However, I think he only skimmed the article, as it does not say 45 states have "unsafe" water, only "contaminated' water, with a spread of 316 contaminants.

About two thirds of those 'contaminants' are unregulated. There is nothing saying those substances are safe, but neither is there anything saying they are unsafe (in the summary). EPA has since issued regulations voluntarily (not mandated) and found 49 unregulated contaminants at the time of testing were above the _ new_ legal limits.

For actual performance of eliminating regulated contaminants, the summary says:
"
For the 114 contaminants that are regulated, EWG's drinking water quality analysis found that utilities achieved 92 percent compliance with EPA's mandatory health standards, demonstrating that utilities can and do comply with regulatory standards when they exist.
"
www.ewg.org/tap-water/executive-summary.php

Let's face it, the US has some of the safest municipal water in the world. That's why 25-30% of bottled water is municipal water. And the rest of that bottled water? It's not held up to the same regulation level as municipal water and allows for some contamination of E.coli, fecal coliform, and parasites such as cryptosporidium or giardia.

Tap water in most of the US is perfectly safe, and I promote it whenever I get the chance as an environmental engineer. It's true that in some areas of the US the tap water will occasionally exceed the limits for certain contaminants, but regulations in the US are extremely strict, and are getting stricter all the time. When limits are exceeded, it's not usually by very much and poses no significant threat to human health.

What we also need to be doing is reusing our wastewater (AKA toilet to tap). Wastewater treatment plants are very sophisticated, and can produce high quality water from the stuff that you flush down the toilet. If we continue to accelerate our groundwater usage, we'll deplete our groundwater and will be forced to rely almost exclusively on wastewater reuse and expensive desalination (which is already near its theoretical limit of efficiency). Drink tap water for m1/1000th the cost of bottled, knowing that it's better for the environment, and better regulated than bottled water even though limits for certain contaminants may sometimes be exceeded.

I'd also like to mention that plastic bottles are a major contributor to the plastics in the ocean, as they blow off the California coast into the Pacific. Right now, plastics in the Pacific Ocean cover an area that is greater than that of the entire United States. Most of it is a thin "soup", with byproducts dating back as far as WWII, but there are larger pieces dispersed all throughout this mass, with plastic "icebergs" sometimes reaching depths of 100 feet or more. This poses a great threat to marine life, and is already altering whole ecosystems. We need to invest in the mass production of bioplastics made by bacteria, that replace nearly all the varieties of consumer plastic and break down to just H2O and CO2 in saltwater within 20 days.

Except thats wrong you *******.   
Tap water is vastly different by area, tap water in one county may be even cleaner than bottled water, whereas in another place tap water could be filthy.   
I know that where I live the tap water contains trace amounts of chemicals linked to cancer.
