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.

    Get a Brita filter pitcher or a Brita filter for your tap and see if it helps.

      Is Brita good? Does it filter well? I am not sure. How often do we need to change the filter?

    We 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

    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.

      So you got kidney stones after drinking tap water??
      Jan 13
    • Nestle / Data PIAo40
      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.

    Tap water has good minerals filters remove. Also you get plenty of water from food.

    If you're thirsty drink otherwise don't worry about it.

      It is not. You can imagine that tap water is worse in some other countries so all the people have to use water filter and as a result water is usually much better than in USA.

    Against 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.

      Nice. Good for you. Which service is this?

    Kirkland 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 itโ€™s well worth it.

    Having consistent cold water (even tap) on hand is great for me. Always filling up a pitcher for the fridge and have ice

    I add fruits/cucumber to my water, just a tiny piece to change the flavor.

      Good idea. Sounds like a good alternative.

    Brita will make your water, not taste like a swimming pool... Otherwise the water is fine for human consumption

  • FYI, 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.
