Well I would have to say that when bottled water first srpang up in my area about 4 years ago I was very suspicious of this product. I really didn't understand the logic in buying 20 ounces of water for a dollar while I could get it for practically free on tap. Soon enough, my health concious mother and sister bought a large water dispenser and put it right next to the kitchen sink.(The battle was on) At first, I refused to use the purified water as a sign of protest, but eventually I started drinking. Today, I am officially a full-time purified water consumer for trivial reasons such as 'taste' and 'clarity'. I still refuse to pay a dollar for water, but I do agree with the consensus when I drink purified. What are your thoughts?
