Do bottled water producers filter their water any more stringently than a tap water filter?

    There is little credible evidence to suggest that bottled water is any healthier or cleaner than tap water. In fact, because the federal agencies in charge of regulating contamination in bottled and tap water are different, tap water is actually tested for contamination more often than bottled water. Standards for the cleanliness of bottled water in the US are not any stricter than standards for tap water. Add to that the fact that bottled water consumes far more energy and resources than tap water because of the energy and materials needed to harvest and package it, and tap water clearly seems like a greener (and cheaper) path to take.

    There have actually been some studies that show that tap water is actually more carefully tested and regulated than bottled water.
