I have to agree about tap water. I never ever drink it without boiling it. ie for tea, coffee etc
When you read about all the dangerous nitrates and chemicals and metals that get into it (even at the water treatment plants) I would never recommend anyone take the risk.

In Cornwall SW England a few years ago a whole community was poisened and dozens of people were left with permanant brain damage

I always drink bottled spring water but I'm not even sure thats always safe.

If you find it unpalatable try the sparkling variety I can drink gallons of the stuff and always feel refreshed too.
