Usually only bottled water, but trying to teach myself to drink tap water cause it's so much cheaper, but it tastes really gross.
The taste doesn't seem to bother anyone else in my family though.
Looking into getting one of those filter tap things on the sink, PIL have one and it's great!

I'm in Adelaide too. We have a pura tap. I hate the taste of Adelaide water. So nice when I go to Melbourne and drink from the tap!
I had a brita jug before pura tap. Makes a big difference.
Fluoride is still retained in both these filtration systems.

I have drank tank water my whole life. Its so sweet. Except mum & dads can taste like smoke in the winter cause their main tank is near their chimney, its sort of an aftertaste. Can't stand the taste of town water. I will only drink it at someone's place if I'm really thirsty and then basically gulp it down.
No one I know of drinks the tap water in my nearest town, it's foul. Except the hospital cause the government says its safe. Every house (I think) has tanks.
Even most bottled water nowadays tastes like hard water i reckon. Gross!

I live in Adelaide, have a pura tap and stilk drink tap water.
Tap water is also much safer than tank or bottled water and a LOT of work goes into ensuring this.

Would love a reverse osmosis filter but they're a bit pricey I think. Also would like a chlorine filter on showers and bath...
I drink tap water, but use a Brita filter jug. I gag at the taste of water straight from the tap now, tastes and smells of chlorine. Funnily, I don't notice it at my patents house and they're only one suburb away.
Out and about, I usually take a stainless steel bottle with me and fill up from a filtered jug where possible, or from a tap. I loathe paying for bottles water, it's hideously expensive when you think about it. I drink a lot of water, so if tap is my only option I just gulp it down.

Just tap water here (Perth) but i usually have something with it (lemon juice or
Cordial) i don't like it much on its own unless I'm beginning to feel like spongebob out of water...
