Topics like this never cease to amaze! Some get so upset about what someone else is doing! Frankly, you can sip your water from a toilet bowl for all I care, or drink from that rubber hose we are told now a days might kill you(tongue and cheek)...so from bottled, to well, to tank to filtered...whatever works for you is fine with me. I happen to drink bottled cause that's my perception of safe water and with said bottled water, myself nor the dogs have ever experienced any intestinal problems that I'm aware of. In a Nutshell, if it works for you, do what you want!

Calm down there tiger. It is not our concern you drink out of the toilet. The OP asked about filters and what others are doing and the results we are getting. We know most Americans drink out of the toilet, err, straight from the tap. This is not news-worthy. I hate to see people get so violent on a forum

That bottled water you are drinking is more than likely tap water... Perception is often not reality.

Read the bottle label. A lot of the water goes through RO. However, there is the occasional Consumer Reports bottle water tests or the Perrier benzene fiasco.

Im as calm as can be but to hear others tell another what they should, should not do is no different to having a porch light on in your own campsite. Oh...their afraid of the dark, oh their afraid of the campground water. I'm just saying...whatever!!

Edit:
What do you know...two brands of bottled I drink are on the top ten! LOL

Considering most y'all have been AARP members for a while now, I just gotta ask....

How'd y'all that won't drink anything but triple filtered fully krausened water make it so many trips around the sun?

Although I'd have to be pretty d@mn thirsty to drink out of cattle track puddles or a stock tank. Now the well feeding the stock tank, different story.


Lol...I have used a water tank hose to drink many times, when dirt biking the high meadow back country. Of course that was before getting the fancy backpack, with bladder and mouth piece to suck. [emoticon]

In my original post I failed to mention we always carry a case of bottled water.
My wife and I guzzle water, so a case or two has been our normal.
My only question is do people make coffee with campground water,
or carry gallons of water for coffee?
We drink a lot of coffee.
Guess I wasn't clear on the campground water question. Sorry yall...

I guess I understand you are concerned about the quality of campground water and want to drink bottled water. I would think you would want to use bottled water to make coffee for the same reasons. You might also want to think about using bottled water to brush your teeth and for a final rinse after washing dishes.

Lots of contaminants can be absorbed through the skin. If the water is not safe to drink, I am not sure I would feel safe using it for bathing. Also consider that the shower will generator lots of aerosols that could contain contaminants such as mold, bacteria, viruses, heavy metals and organics such as pesticides and other petrochemicals. Do you really want to breath those contaminants while you shower?
