So the water that has been flowing naturally for millions of years through volcanic springs and rippling streams in the mountains bringing you the purest mineral water in the world, gets poured into a plastic bottle in a factory and the manufacture then sticks a label on it displaying a "best use before" date of only 3 months ahead.

I suppose the question should be what one would find if one took similar samples out of normal tap water.

Municipal water, well water, etc.

I've never been convinced in the benefit of buying water in bottles when it comes out of the tap for FREE.
