    Yes, I drink tap water.

    But I almost always keep some bottled water at home because there have been a few times when the water turns brown or is shut off with no notice. Now that it is officially hurricane season I have to buy more bottled water for safe keeping.

    Buy a water filter from MSR, Sawyer or Katadyn instead. Iodine tincture or bleach can also be used to treat water if you have no other option. But filter the water first to get all solids out.

    Cody Lundin's book 98.6 Degrees is recommended.

    I don't drink tap water. I'm on well water for the last 40 years. I just filter it for sediments.
    I remember drinking city water with a taste of Chlorine.

    Most of the time, yes. Living near the Great Lakes, you don’t really need to worry.

    Boiling/pasteurizing water is more effective then giving it a chemical treatment. Since it destroys a lot more pathogens. But filtering it first is indeed a good idea, alto one needs to clean the filter after a certain time.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Yes, we have very good and clean tap water here in Norway. When I lived in Ireland, the tap water was awful. Very hard water. I used a filter to clean it for drinking, while many coworkers just bought bottled water.

    I usually drink bottled water, but I have no particular aversion to tap water. I should probably drink tap water more often, though, for the 'vaccination effect' of the body dealing with various potential toxins and becoming more resistant to those.
