    Ive always noticed drinking tap water from the kitchen is much nicer than tap water from the bathroom.

    When did bottled water first start to become popular in Britain? I'm sure that shops did not sell it in the 1960s but several kids at my primary school used to drink it in the 1990s in preference to tap water. I thought it was a waste of money and a chemistry teacher made claims that bottled water contains all sorts of dissolved crud from the ground where it emerges from. Buxton Spring comes out of a tap in the middle of a railway yard in Derbyshire.

    Perrier water became popular in the 1980s.

    I don't remember still bottled water coming in before the second half of the 1990s.

    I can remember someone being surprised I drank tap water on it's own.

    Perrier water was served in British restaurants during the 1970s and became an upper-middle class household staple by the mid 1980s but it wasn't really a competitor to tap water because it was sparkling and flavoured versions were also available.

    I'm intrigued to know at what point in time did common folk start buying bottles of still water, and more importantly, why?

    Could be that your kitchen tap comes straight of the mains whereas your bathroom tap comes from a tank in the loft, thus could be home to dead animals/creatures?

    You are advised not to drink the tap water in Lanzarote - not because it is polluted but it has lots of volcanic-related minerals in it and we are not used to it...
