Bottled spring or filtered ?

Which water is better ? I use the Brita filter pitcher for myself since I drink a lot of water. We buy the Poland spring bottles for my wife and the cats.

1. Ultimately the answer depends on the quality of the tap water you are putting through the Brita.

Where is your tap water sourced from?

Does the supplier of your tap water make available an analysis of the content that can be trusted?

The activated carbon used in the Brita filters can remove some contaminants but not others.
