I tested a famous water company's bottled water, it read 143 TDS, another one reads 3 TDS, my tap varies from 150 - 340, from the 3, I like tap, RO water I dont drink. Witch one you would drink ?

Most bottled water (or so I am told) Goes through a sediment filter and then gets treated with O3 to sterilize the water. The O3 will go away after a short period of time inside of the bottle but the water is mostly sterile then.

I don't drink water, have you seen what fish do in there???? J/K Tap for me :) I think the water will be different from town/county/state quite a bit :)

I also think a lot of the "drinking water" add minerals for taste. I prefer RO.

My tap water reads 100 ppm TDS and it tastes fine. I see no reason to prefer lower TDS in it.

If you have a medical problem with sodium (like high blood pressure), you may want the lowest TDS.
