    Tap water here

    Missed it sooooo much on a recent trip back to Broken Hill to see family & friends -- the water out there is shocking.

    The tap water in Melbourne is fantastic! No complaints about drinking tap water here.
    I only buy the odd bottle when I'm out and about. But I often carry a drink bottle of tap water with me.

    No we didn't either until we got the filter and could smell how much chlorine was in it

    Coles bottled water.

    I'd always drank bottled water from year 6 until I moved in my with ex and he got me drink tap, but My friend tested my water when she had her fish here and it's high in anemia or something, according to goggle its due to animal droppings so we don't touch the tap water anymore and I wish I never did.

    All those people that are fussy about taste etc - what do you do when you go to someone else's house and all they have on offer is tap water? Do you not drink it?

    Bottled water is the biggest rip off out there - it's more expensive than petrol!!!!

    The only times I have bought bottled water is a couple of slabs in preparation for cyclone season.
    When I refused to drink tap water and now again, I always took my own water or didn't drink.
    But everyone who knows me knows I dont drink tap water.

    Anemia is low haemoglobin in your blood. So I highly doubt your water was high in that.

    Do you use bottle water to clean your teeth? What about when making ice?

    I always carry bottled water in my hand bag and nappy bag so if I don't have a cuppa at someone's place I just have that.

    The whole fish anemia thing made me lol I'm sure you meant ammonia as that's what fish droppings not being cleaned causes spikes of. Still it made me giggle

    Awesome water have shut down and I get my filters off eBay now. There are similar ones around or you can get them second hand. I really like it and much cheaper in the long run then bottled water!!!
