Aquafina and Dasani are tap water

Buying bottled water may be convenient, but you're basically getting filtered tap-water:
Pepsi's Aquafina and Coca-Cola Co.'s Dasani are both made from purified water from public reservoirs, as opposed to Groupe Danone's Evian or Nestle's Poland Spring, so-called spring waters shipped from specific locations that the firms say have notably clean water.
(HT: Feministe) I once talked with a water engineer at a party and he said bottled water is a racket. He said the FDA actually has much stricter standards for what comes out of your tap than what goes into those bottles.
