    Bah, it ain’t sexy in my old (rental) house. I doubt most people would consume tea-colored water from the tap.

  3. mammalpants says:

    you bet it is! aquafina is the sexiest! it comes from golden copper pipes deep under the plant facilities in Omaha. Steve filters it himself.

    Worth every $2/16oz.

  4. theblackdog says:

    It’s sexier if you filter it.

    @Rectilinear Propagation: Right. Much better to drink water with more microbial contaminates and as a bonus contribute huge amounts of toxic chemicals to our landfills in the form of hundereds or thousands of plastic bottles per person per year….

    what is up with these crappy 1 line posts?

    It’s becoming en vogue even though the true environmentalists were against bottled water not for emergencies from day one. It takes so much energy to ship, and only one person at the EPA is responsible for checking on that water quality. Meanwhile, hundreds may focus on a single city’s water supply. If you own a well, you need to ask them to come out to do tests, but at least you are in control.

    Plus, more and more bad news is coming out about what that plastic can leach out into the water. Isn’t it time for people to realize that tap water from a stainless steel water bottle is just as good or better?

    If you don’t trust your water, I won’t hold it against you if you use a filter.
