Tap Water Quality is important when making your own bottled drinking water, but not if you want to be able to consume tap water in any quantity or for prolonged periods. Many of us take it for granted that tap water is just as safe to drink as bottled water. The fact is that bottled water is a misleading illusion. In reality, most tap water around the world is contaminated and certainly unsafe for extended drinking.
Tap Water Quality is important if you are using it for cooking, cleaning, washing clothes or other purposes. This is because bottled water cannot be considered a good source of drinking water at all. It has a very slim chance of being any more than pure tap water. This is because most bottled water companies rely on the outdated practice of bottling from the tap water coming into their facilities and then selling it back to consumers, without adding any contaminants of any kind to it. This is definitely not the safest way to get your hands on tap water
