I tend to agree. I figure it is boiled, too. My tap water tastes better
when I boil it. I've seen a lot of water from underground springs and
pools. Much of it needs to be filtered. If water can get to the surface,
surface crud can get to the water. If snow and rain falling out of the sky
are contaminated, their disappearing back into the ground is taking a lot
of stuff with them.

Interestingly, I have known several people that would drink only certain
brands of bottled water. When they came to my own house they brought their
water with them (I mark that as considerate), however, in my home or in
their own, they filled their glasses with ice from the ice maker and then
poured their bottled water over it. What is it that they think they have -
especially in 15 or 20 minutes?

These same folks didn't shy away from my homemade veggie soup, jello,
boiled potatoes and other boiled veggies, fresh salad fixings, fresh
fruit, etc. made with (or washed in).... yep, tap water. They eat with
forks and spoons washed in tap water out of platesThey washed
their hands in tap
water before eating raw veggies or bread or fixing salad with their
bare, tap water coated hands.

Oh, well. Live and let live
