No, I see no reason to buy expensive tap water in a plastic bottle. I think bottled water is a scam/ripoff.

Hey tnak1001,

Thanks for posting, but right now it doesn't look like your post has any actual science content.

Asking people about their own opinions and behavior is a good way to get a discussion going, and we're all about that on Science Buzz, but this is a science blog, after all, so you should try to angle your questions that way.

So, if you're interested in bottled water... I guess you could look into the processes used in filtering it before it's packaged (or maybe it's not filtered, and you could find out what chemicals and organisms make their way into our bottled water), or you could add something to the discussions we've had on Buzz about plastic containers and packaging, and the sort of chemicals that get in our food and water from them (here's a good starting point for that sort of angle.)

Here is a good video to get a discussion about bottled water started. As a warning, it contains some swearing.
