Much depends where you live. Every time we go to Spain for a
vacation we are reminded not to drink tap water, so we buy bottled
water for health reasons.

The bottle water I buy comes from a spring and costs less than 8 cents a bottle. I'm on the go a lot and can just grab one or two and take them with me. I've never bought a water bottle from the store that I have to fool around with and constantly wash to keep clean, and for my usage, I would need four bottles (two for me, two for my wife) if we each want two to take somewhere.

Travels well, is better than sucking down sugary soda, a sealed bottle is guaranteed hygienic, the water can be frozen in the bottle to stay cold all day (including keeping one's lunch cold), the bottle is disposable when empty (if space or weight is an issue), bottled water can be more pure / less minerals and chemicals; it keeps you (and others) employed

I've found tap water that was so high in sulfur that you wouldn't want to wash with it, let alone drink it. And once you get outside the developed countries, tap water may be loaded with coliform bacteria.

bottled water is thought of to be safer than tap water. however, there are some companies exposed for using tap water for bottled water and calling it "bottled water"

Some tap water tastes bad, some is undrinkable
