If you search on the internet, it appears that bottled water may not be any safer to drink than tap water and in some cases bottled water is in fact tap water.
Mijas as I said earlier is one example where the bottled water is the same as the tap water, however, I have no doubt that there are many people on the Mijas water supply who would never drink tap water, mistakenly believing that Mijas bottled water is purer. I am also sure many would say the bottled water tastes better, and again believe it.
I am certain that a lot of the doubts about tap water have been encouraged and created by companies who want to sell bottled water. After all who would pay extra if they were told it's all the same, but in that case the bottled water companies profits would 'go down the drain'.
I believe I read a ' Which' Magazine Report' some years ago which said that too
PS I just checked it out online. Which' did say that and one fi nding was : -
Taste: Half of Which? members say they can’t taste the difference between bottled and tap water, with 18% actually preferring it from the tap.
