I usually heat tap water and filter it through coffee beans.

I inherited some fancy water filtration system with a separate tap for the filtered water and also connected to my fridge. Filters are about $100 a year and the water tastes good. I have case of water for over a year and still has half the bottles.
We used to go through a case every 2 weeks.

"Each year, Canadian consumers spend around $2.5 billion on bottled water — that’s 71 litres for every man, woman, and child in the country — even though most of the country, with the notable exception of some remote Indigenous communities, enjoys clean, safe tap water."

Wife and I use Vitapur filter from tap, changing filter every few months. Water tastes a bit better than tap, especially when making ice with it.

I only drink bottled water. But I do use tap water for cooking.

Water might safe and clean but water pipes never been cleaned and if you ever have a chance look what is inside them.

The biggest con ever, Bottled Water. Some come from springs but most of it is glorified, purified tap water sold at prices that make it more expensive than gas. I've never seen a label on bottled water regarding its source.

There is source on every bottle I drink. Nestle water for instance come from Good Hope spring in BC , And it cost 24*0.5 l 4.50 CAD with taxes.
But people from Toronto or Vancouver could not have known that because after they pay mortgage no money left. Lol

Also
Several studies on humans have also found a link between long-term exposure to high levels of chlorination by-products and a higher risk of cancer. For instance, a recent study showed an increased risk of bladder and possibly colon cancer in people who drank chlorinated water for 35 years or more.

Bottled water I drink is ozonated.
