Does bottled water have any benefits over tap water besides being convenient?
Not really. It isn’t safer or healthier. In fact, in many cases, the bottled water that you buy is simply the tap water from a major city that goes through a filtration process before it is put into all of those little plastic bottles.
If you don’t like the taste of your tap water, which is another reason people often use for drinking bottled water, then consider getting an inexpensive water filter for your tap. Alternatives include water filter pitchers or larger dispensers that go in the refrigerator or a built-in filter for your refrigerator’s water dispenser. You can even get reusable water bottles with a built-in water filter.
