What do you guys drink/like? Does taste override price, health benefits, etc. or does one water rule them all?

Recently I have tried Smart Water and Core Hydration. They both taste OK but they don't do much of anything health wise and they aren't cheap.

Mostly tap water, smart water or Evian if I have to buy on the go, I like sparkling mineral water though. Gerolsteiner is fucking delicious.

If you’ve got some time:

I like pretty much any of them. I'll do like Smart Water or Fiji when I'm at the airport (i.e. on someone elses dime). I'll typically take whatever is available. At home, I have filtered water on the fridge that I use.

When I used to travel for work and I was using a corporate card at the airport, it was always Fiji water. On my own dime, it's tap water or whatever the cheapest is.

If you guys don’t know, I work for a water company called Eternal Water. I have been a water snob for quite sometime since I have been in the beverage industry for over 25 years. I have sold Icelandic Glacial, Fiji, Essentia, and now I strictly sell Eternal Water. If you only drink tap water and don’t believe in the benefits of high quality water, good for you. I will not argue that point. I can only tell you the features and benefits of drinking quality water. Eternal water is naturally sourced in the United States. It has many natural minerals like magnesium and silica but the main feature is it’s alkalinity. Just like people will only eat certain foods, you should really consider what water you put in your body.

The health benefits include:
For Diabetics: silica helps the body produce and maintain insulin levels
Gout: will help almost instantly when feeling gout pain
Magnesium: helps relax muscles
Urinary health: helps breakdown kidney stones and help with flow
The biggest myth which obviously can’t be proven is that cancer cannot exist in a alkaline environment. Keeping your body high in alkaline is just healthy. Just like when people searched for the fountain of youth…

Spoken like a true salesman.
Did you buy Eternal water before you worked there and will you continue to buy it if you ever leave?

I never by water by the gallon (like milk) at the stores because I believe it tastes like plastic from the gallon jug .

When I buy a bottle of water at the gas station it’s always the cheapest one they have that is close to $1.89 for 1.5L

At home - tap water filtered through the Brita (that my wife NEVER FUCKING FILLS!!!!) or through the filtered water through the fridge.
At work - whatever the gas station/store has in stock when I’m out. I usually drink 4-6 bottles of water a day during the summer and I don’t have time to go shopping around for better water and anything is better than the brown water that comes out of the black rubber hose at the garage.

Before I sold it no. Eternal water started in California and came to the wholesaler I worked at right when I got axed and lost my job. Back then Icelandic glacial was my favorite. I also sold a lot of essentia and Voss. Yes, I drink all types of beverages and will always continue to drink quality water. I also forgot to mention that drinking eternal water dropped my blood pressure to normal levels. You can call bullshit if you want.
Crowder on the Phoenix suns is an Eternal Water customer and has bottles of it on the sideline during games.

Screenshot_20210720-201831.png drinking water out of a can is a trip.

Anyway, water is water unless it's aquafina or ice mountain. The rest taste about the same. We almost exclusively buy Niagara for home.
