So when war happens, and you can't find clean water to drink, it's not a life worth living? LoL
Fine by me.
Do you know what it would take for our municipal water systems to collapse? Either a global environmental disaster, or the total collapse of civilization.
Yeah, it's going to be pretty dang shitty. Human beings would quickly turn into animals in either case.

Sure no problem. More water in the bottles for us.

This one has 0% fluoride, so no aftertaste.

I wish I am living in Ontario area to enjoy this deal. I love bottle water, and there is nothing with that as long as everyone is doing his/her own job to recycle.

Adding in dentist appointments is going to effect the already complicated price formulae!
And really, bottled water is so poorly tested compared to public works water, you really have no clue what is in it.

Even if you recycle, the amount of energy spent on BOILING the water, bottling the water, creating the bottles, and transporting the bottles is enormous.
Putting aside the issue of corporations seizing public water sources to drain for profit, bottled water is incredibly damaging to us in every regard.
I mean, the situation you guys have with Nestle in Ontario is nuts. You're letting a corporation take your resource, and pay you nothing for the pleasure of it.

I wish Ontario had a deposit structure or additional tax on these water bottles to help deter some purchases...
We do.

The tax is buried at the level of the brand/franchiser/first importer.

Could it be arguably larger? Perhaps. But no doubt bottled water is being sold as a loss leader to bring people in the store anyway.

Interesting that you actually believe this. Just because you don't like tap water (I don't either) doesn't mean you need to buy 24 packs of water bottles, that is extremely wasteful just for daily water drinking. Use the refillable 18L bottles and use that for example.

Let's do the math:

In Milton, I'm paying a fixed service charge of $30.69/month and then $2.5231 per m^3 (1000 L) of water up to 110 m^3, i.e. 0.2531 cents/L. Health authorities commonly recommend drinking 2 L of water daily. So $30.69/30 days + (0.2531 cents/L * 2 L) = $1.53. Compare with cost of bottled water, $1/24 500 mL bottles = 4.2 cents/500 mL bottle * 4 = $0.17 to drink 2 L.

$1.53/$0.17 = 9, so 9 times cheaper to drink bottled water.
:facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
How the heck did this post get 5 likes?

You obviously don't include the fixed $30.69/month that you'll have to pay regardless of how much water you use. :facepalm:
Either you can't follow logic or you're just being disingenuous. Which one is it?

Here's the real math:
Tap water = 0.2531 cents/L * 2L = 0.50 cents (not dollars). That's right, it costs you half a penny per day.
Bottled water = 16.67 cents

$0.167/$0.005 = 33, so 33 times cheaper to drink tap water compared bottled water.

I'm not even hating on this deal. This is an amazing deal on bottled water. But your math sucks.

I did the same. Its nice always having very cold water. I buy one case of water a year for when I go out and don't want to buy children $1-3 bottles of water or any other drinks while out.

Because people enjoy confirmation bias, even if that confirmation is from a dude using faulty math and terrible logic. People!
