Only tap water delivers
Did you know the water from your tap is regularly tested for bacteria and more than 70 different chemicals? Tap water offers safety, reliability, and the best value for your dollar. A typical 500 mL bottle you buy outside the home can cost between $1.00 and $3.00. From your tap, you can fill the same water bottle more than 1 500 times for $1.00!
