I don't quite see the need to filter mineral water. I drink bottled water, I also use distilled water for ice cubes.

many brands of bottled water are simply ground water (like what you would get from your tap) that has been filtered.

I have an undersink reverse osmosis filter that I use for things like tea/coffee and cooking.

I'm not fancy - I drink tap water. Good ole New York City tap water. I loathe the idea of paying for water (except when in third world countries - then I'm happy to do it). When I do pay for water, I pay for Fiji or Volvic.

I drink bottled mineral water with natural gas. its an aquired taste, but it is very refreshing. Otherwise, the tap water where I live is clean and delicious.

I certainly hope you mean natural carbonation. If that's what you meant, and I'm sure it is, then I love naturally carbonated mineral water. San Benedetto is the best.

yes, one of those things that I translate back into english - strangly enough, the very best water I have ever had is from the ex-Yugoslavia.

What is "natural gas?"   I live in Colorado.  the tap water here is awesome.   The worst tasting water I've ever drunk from the tap was last summer when I was on vacation at the beach in North Carolina.  The water tasted and smelled like dead fish were in the holding tank. We bought a Brita filter.

sorry, natural carbination. New York tap water is great, too, but I like the saltynes of miniral water, and the slight fizz of the natrural carbination.

Gas water = bubbly water, like perrier, badoit, vichy, etc. I love those too. If any of you get to go to France, check out the water aisle. What am I saying, the water warehouse. This is like the cereal aisle in the US, choices upon choices, some with higher calcium or potassium, etc. When I was a kid, my dad drank Volvic, my mom Hepar (I think because of the potassium), and I perrier. Currently. we filter our water, as we have do not have municipal water and the well water is a little difficult to stomach otherwise.

I'm not a big fan of Perrier, I find that it is much too carbonated.

I'm not sure there is such a thing as true "natural" carbonation.  I know that Perrier water doesn't come out of the ground carbonated.  They add the gas later.  I read an interesting article a while back on their "Earth's first soft drink" ad campaign, and whether or not they were misleading their customers into believing that their water comes from the ground carbonated.  The Perrier public relations folks' explanation was that the gas they use to carbonate their water is "natural" gas, so their water is "naturally carbonated."  Sounds a bit misleading to me.         Are there actually mineral waters out there that come from the ground carbonated?  Do they taste good?

yes, they are much less carbonated than perier. in terms of taste, it is an aquired taste. they are a little salty, and can be a little "oily" in texture.
