Should I buy bottled water?

In general, no. There are no health benefits to drinking bottled water compared to tap water. Your water is tested for more kinds of bacteria and contaminants and is tested much more often than bottled water. Tap water is held to higher standards than bottled water and treatment plants use the same water treatment technology available to bottled water producers, in addition, tap water is much less expensive. Bottled water does offer advantages to those who prefer the taste of a specific kind of water or to people on the go who don’t have time or forget to fill a sports bottle with tap water.
