Is tap water even safe to drink when it is put back into the taps after filtering or whatever? It can't be really safe when it has been drank by many others and has had sewage water and poop in it and who knows what else.

One's more expensive than the other, so the companies lie to you that bottled water is better so you can buy it and make them rich.

Bottled water tastes better because its got the taste of the ground and the mountains and metals etc, tap water can have small bacteria in and the taste of chlorine. if your gonna drink tap water have it filtered.

I'm not crazy about the plastic the bottled water comes in, I wouldn't want to drink water that way continuosly because the plastic may leach into the water.

Nothing. Both will kill you at the same rate.

Tap water grossness varies by place. I've drunk tap water in the Welsh mountains that tastes like bottled. The tap water in Essex tastes like a swimming pool.

Get a filter.

We have very hard water here which makes it taste quite strong like bottled water. I quite like it.

Cant stand tap water in soft water areas though, tastes of chalk!
