    Inm England there are additives to tap water such as fluoride. My cat will not drink tap water but will happily drink out of rain puddles.

    The bottle water I buy comes from a spring and costs less than 8 cents a bottle. I'm on the go a lot and can just grab one or two and take them with me. I've never bought a water bottle from the store that I have to fool around with and constantly wash to keep clean, and for my usage, I would need four bottles (two for me, two for my wife) if we each want two to take somewhere.

    I've found tap water that was so high in sulfur that you wouldn't want to wash with it, let alone drink it. And once you get outside the developed countries, tap water may be loaded with coliform bacteria.
