Purified or Spring Water?

Does anyone here use Perified or Spring Water or water other than tap water? I've seen some people use bottle water for their dog instead of tap water.

I have a private well, so I use my tap water. NO chemicals are in my water, it does have a high mineral content though.
I think the op meant "purified"

My dog and I drink purified water from this:
Shop Whirlpool Dual Filtration System at Lowes.com

Bottled water is a waste of money and plastic, and reverse osmosis(sometimes referred to as spring water I believe) removes too many good minerals and can be damaging to your health.

We have well water, and a reverse osmosis for our cooking/drinking. I just give the dogs well water, it is pretty good quality. Our water softener was out for about a month and I really couldn't tell much difference other than the dishwasher left the silverwear a bit spotty.

How does drinking RO water damage your health?

When I moved from the east coast to the west coast I had to switch from tab water to spring water for my dogs. They were getting loose bowels! It worked!

We have a whole house filter system, we all drink tap. For my coffee though, I run the water through a Brita.
