DITTO!!!

the bottle waste issue alone is a crime. all for "special" water that loses out to city tap water, in nearly all conducted taste tests.

Depending on my destination's water availability, I'll haul the trailer either w/ a couple of gallons in the FW tank & fill up on arrival or fill before departure.

I never drink campground water even if my trailer has a build in water filtration. I dont drink my tap water at home also. Some morning when we turn the tap the water smell the chlorine and at the end of the day it smell the river even if we have a state of the art filtration plant. I only drink spring water in 18 liters bottles hooked on top of a water cooler. When I camp I bring the water in gallon that I bought at the store. I call the tap water ( frog water )I just use it for washing and bathing.

I won't drink the water at the campground or at home. Our tap water smells like a swimming pool. I do fill gallon jugs from our tap to take for coffee and buy bottled water to drink. I also have purchased gallons and just put that on ice.

I guess I see the value in being able to bring a sealed container with water in it anywhere I go. A bottle of water costs me about 10Ę; which to me is worth the money. I don't have to worry about filters, bleaching my system if I haven't used it in weeks, etc. All that for $1-2 per camping trip.

As for the bottles; they all come back with me to be recycled. Alberta has a very sophisticated recycling program; and the used bottles do find another home. (Link)
