What type of water do you usually drink: bottled water from the store, tap water, or some other type?

We have the best tasting well water so I mostly drink that. If I want it super cold I might grab a bottle of water that we keep in the fridge. In the summer I'll fill up a pitcher to keep in the the refrigerator for cold water.

I also drink well water. It tastes great and and is much cheaper than buying bottled water.

Usually bottled water. Our tap water isn't that great.

We have city water and use a filter jug for most things. At some point I plan to install a whole-of-house filter to catch some of the crud in the water. We also occasionally drink bottled water but I prefer not to go through that much single use plastic.

We have a reverse osmosis system. It's great because I can continuously refill my water bottle throughout the day. We try not to buy bottled water because it's not as cost effective and it's better for the environment if we just bottle our own right?

My water is filtered before it reaches the tap, and then I take the extra step of de-chlorinating it by filling a large open air bottle which I set out in the sun for at least a day.

When I get my plumbing rejigged I plan to create multiple water feeds. There will be one hot water feed and cold will be split into filtered and unfiltered. There's no need to filter the water for the outside taps, the toilets etc but the sinks will have drinking water. I may yet put a reverse osmosis filter in somewhere, just need to figure out how to bypass it for making coffee because RO water isn't great for coffee.

Cool. Sounds like more work than necessary. I have one filter for all the water I need to replace every few years and that's it. Although it doesn't filter fluoride *meh* and it doesn't filter chlorine but the second is easy to get rid of with a bit of time, sunlight and an open container.

Probably more than strictly necessary, it just means the one-time cost of running another PEX line to the bathroom is offset by ongoing savings in not filtering the water that literally gets flushed down the toilet. Depending on how accessible everything is I may end up saving the unfiltered water just for the outside taps.
