    You live in Europe that's why. They don't put fluoride and chlorine into the tap water over there right?

    There are regular checks of our tap water here in Germany and the quality is excellent. Million of people drink it every day regularly, so do I. No problems at all.

    We have a well, so I bottle my own water in stainless steel water containers when we go out.

    I think the bottled water creates a lot of waste with the bottles.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    The tap water in Chicago is very similar to water you might find in a public pool. It has a very distinctive chemical odor (chlorine) and contains high amounts of fluoride as well.

    I don't drink it.

    I drink our tap water. I prefer it to bottled water which is typically polluted with chemicals from manufacturing the bottles.

    They put very small amounts of chlorine in the water (among the least amounts of chlorine in water in the world), UV light is also a popular way to clean the water here.

    Chlorine degrades into rock salt and water pretty quickly, at least if the engineers at the water plant know their job. So that is probably not a major problem.

    No. It's deep well water, very hard. I have a reverse osmosis system to purify it.

    Yes. It's perfectly safe to drink tap water here. The Wiener Hochquellwasser (Viennese high spring water), is one of the purest waters in the world.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    That´s true, it comes from the springs of the Wienerwald.



    Our tap water origins in our Bavarian forest, similar to the Wienerwald.
