>>7325838 During the gap between the time when people discovered that tap water is often fully of horrifying chemicals and the time when filter pitchers and reverse osmosis machines became cheap and readily available.
>>7328150 >only if you live in a shithole tap water come from water table but has to pass by treatment facility , no matter where do you live it's tasteless, whereas mineral water come from natural source and have better taste ( like natural carbonated water).
>do you even? Dunno for you , but here in France 9L ( 6 bottles) of water cost between 1-3€, whereas soda cost 1.5€ the bottle (1.5L)
>>7328339 >no matter where do you live it's tasteless Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. Once lived in 3 different areas in the same state and the water has tasted wildly different from pleasant to atrocious and metallic
>>7325852 At my high school, letters were sent home warning kids to not drink from the fountains because the water was contaminated. Apparently not contaminated enough to forbid us from drinking it, but it sure did taste weird.
>>7328633 >>7328665 that kind of thing generally doesn't come from the water itself but the human part (canalization,treatment facility ...).Also I've never said that the taste of water doesn't change from a place to another, tap water can usually be neutral or bad. In France 40% of the population doesn't like to drink tap water, because our mineral water taste better (dunno for yours). Moreover I only drink mineral sparkling water ( like 20% of the french) so I've to buy bottled water

It's sad as fuck, but there's plenty of places around the United States that have shitty tap water, in some cases literally. Some towns just don't give a shit. The podcast Reveal had a recent enough episode about a town that had ecoli outbreaks and the town people tried to stand up, but a court ruled in the favor of the water suppliers and there hasn't been any improvement in the tap water.
