You're more likely to have contaminants from the plastic bottle leeching into your water that can make you ill than you are to pick up germs from your sanitised tap water.

Tap water in cities is disgusting, I had to buy bottled water through first year. This year I'm boiling my tap water and adding lemon to remove the taste. It seems ok.

I'm told broken waters are full of nutrients amongst other things...Image Anyone know why D2O (heavy water) tastes different to normal water when it is chemically identical?

I would recommend getting a Brita Filter Jug and running your tap water through it. Water tastes much better!

Ask people if they prefer bottled or tap water and they'll say bottled water.

Subject them to a blind taste test and most can't taste the difference.

Classic psychology. A person's perception of something influences how they experience it. Companies that sell bottled water understand this very well.

I think it differs from person to person. Some people can't really tell the difference or have no problem with tap water. For others, the smell and taste of tap water can be very different to bottled water! It probably depends on your location as well, as tap water is different around the country.

What about bottled waters? There’s a difference between different bottled waters

Yep. It's something that has been researched multiple times. A few examples:

http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1068/p5267
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukn...aste-test.html
https://www.cambridge.org/core/journ...9981F1BD885FE7

You can do the same with wine and often find people often can't distinguish expensive wine from cheap plonk.
