    We have a well and our tap water has no additives in it. Very good water.

    It's free!! Plus, I tend to have squash or cordial in it anyway, which makes it taste better.

    Lowest costing clean water available with the lowest environmental impact.

    It is the clean water that is available at the lowest cost. So why to waste money for something expensive.

    It is convenient. It is relatively cheap and it does not come in plastic bottles that have to be recycled or go to the landfill. In addition, I know my tap water is constantly tested for contaminants. You do not always have that assurance with bottled water and sometimes you do, because it comes from a city water supply sometimes.

    I filter it before drinking tap water. Why waste money and natural resources on bottled water? The statistics on the number of not-quite-biodegradable plastic bottles used for water are scary.

    Very cheap, clean, low environmental impact and healthier than many other choices. We do have a water filter but also drink it straight from the tap.

    We have our own well, too, tested and filtered. It tastes good.  No chlorine. No plastic bottles.

    I usually boil the tap water in a kettle, let it cool down before drinking it. I don't drink directly from the to even though it has been filtered. Many times, i could see bits of sands at the bottom of the kettle. Just couldn't think of drinking sands for my family.

    Our city water supply is safe, and we already pay to have it piped in; why would I pay again to buy bottled water at the store?  That's just dumb--a waste of money--and we have no extra money to waste.
    There is no need to boil water from treated, municipal water systems.  It is perfectly safe and healthy.
    SOME communities do have a higher mineral content in their water that makes it taste funny, even though it is still 100% safe.  Those folks might benefit from some kind of filtration or water softener system, but there is still no need to waste money buying water at the store.
