We have well water, so there's no I issue here. Never heard a complaint from Tyler. Another perk, no water bill. Downside, when power goes out, there's no water, no flushing toilets, etc. Another perk, we have a full house generator so no issue there either.

Everyone gets spring water. The tap water in FL is BAD. And to think, when I was a kid I drank out of the hose and never thought boo about it.

Twenty six years ago I ran in a marathon in Florida and was warned not to drink anything but bottled water.

I give my guys tap water and add white vinger...sounds not good, but Boo Boo finds the water dish if it gets pushed somewhere else.

I have a kinda funny story about the tap water years ago two of my sister in laws visited me from India, they had never been to the US and in India you always have to drink bottled water, some boil it but, really it's just not safe. So they ask "Bisa where is the boiled water"? I told them they could drink the water out of the tap...they acted so funny and did not touch it. Years later they told me that they never experienced "safe tap water" until that first time in the US, and there was no way they were going to drink it, then my huband expained in Hindi that the water is treated here and safe, he drank some to show them...still they were not convinced, then he pointed to the dogs dish and said "she feeds it to the **** dogs of hers", they said that is what tipped the scales...they knew in India I only fed them the bottle water, although they though me a bit eccentic...they knew I would not poison the dogs.

WellI drink tap water and so do my animals unless they are drinking out of the swimming pool. And a lot of the bottled water comes from city wells, so what is the point and I have to say that tooth decay in young children has greatly changed since I was a little girl and drand from a well and my children grew up with floride in the city water--no cavities.
