I do not like the taste of normal tap water. It makes me drink less and then I feel dehydrated. I usually get Kirkland water bottles from costsco. But they are too expensive as in I spend 40-50 dollars every month on water. Just wondering what do you guya do for drinking water.

- Apple / Eng Apple ParkGet a Brita filter pitcher or a Brita filter for your tap and see if it helps.
- Nutanix / R&D 🚗🥖KarbonmoreWe got a RO filter under the sink last week and the water tastes amazing. I have heard that there are some filter models that add back some minerals for taste retention
- Amazon / Other PrsncktyI bought this primarily to make RO/DI water for my aquarium. Works well and has been with me for about two years now, I think.
- Your kidneys are much more expensive and kidney stones hurt af (talking from experience). Idk what water - and how much - u buy. I usually buy bulk online once a month and got it delivered at home. I have a stack next to my door so i pick a bottle every day when i leave for work. Drinking enough water has way too many benefits to worry about price too much if that will help you reach your daily needs. I rotate brands and always only weakly mineralized.
- No. I had kidney stones because of not drinking enough water. Hence I built a strategy to carry always water I like drinking so it won't happen to me again.
This being said, depending on where u live tap water can be pretty loaded with calcium and other minerals and we often don't even know what kind of water comes out of the tap. Once I had to learn about the whole thing I decided I wanted to take control about it.

Looks like your state thinks bottled water should be taxed. Not sure why Safeway doesn't charge the tax
- Amazon rubQ57Against my wishes my wife signed us up for a home spring water delivery. I'm now a fan and drink a lot more water than I used to.
- Google hfchKirkland and other purified water is disgusting.
If you care about taste and health, use spring water.
I use still Crystal Geyser for cooking and sparkling San Pellegrino (glass bottles only) for drinking.
You can get 10 gallon jugs of Crystal Geyser for ~$15 in Safeway and case (14 750ml) of San Pellegrino for ~$18 in Costco.
Totals to about $100 per month, but it’s well worth it.
- Qualtrics TreyHaving consistent cold water (even tap) on hand is great for me. Always filling up a pitcher for the fridge and have ice
- New 57843368FYI, a Brita filter is basically an expensive carbon block. An RO filter takes out tons more stuff. If you want a reasonable in between step get something that takes standard 10" filter blocks and put that inline with your fridge water line. A 1 micron sediment filter and a carbon block will last you a year. Something like a Chloramine Monster on the whole house works too.
Personally I drink whatever water is there, but I do filter for other applications. These are still just carbon blocks, but at least they cost less/work better when you neglect filter changes.
