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"

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.

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!

How does drinking RO water damage your health?
Non conclusive, but enough probable effects that I'll play it safe and use a dual stage.
The dual stage still eliminates a lot of VOCs and harmful chemicals and elements, just not to the degree that RO can do. But it's still in the 90% removal range.

See page 5 if you don't want to read the whole thing:

Below is an abstract about the bacterial growth on the membrane at 35 degrees C:
Gastrointestinal health effects associated with the consumption of drinking water produced by point-of-use domestic reverse-osmosis filtration units. -- Payment et al. 57 (4): 945 -- Applied and Environmental Microbiology

Purified water out of the refrigerator filter for Wolfie. We drink the bottled water.

We have well water, which we drink from the tap and fill the cat/dog bowls with. The only time I get bottled water is when we go to an event and I don't want to fill the 5gal water jug to bring because it's so big/heavy. I should probably get a smaller portable water jug. :D

buy a Mr. Coffee...ours last a year with regular cleaning with vinegar.
Got one. Yes, it's the only one that's lasted a year. Truly amazed me since it was the one on sale too! (But given it's been a year I figure it's headed toward its demise any day now. lol)

We had to hunt for the last one! I was worried they had stopped making that model. We tossed the last one because the button were sticking, not because our lovely water killed it.

My Mr coffee had the button stick too. It was always clean because it had only pure water going into it.
For the cost they work fine, I can't see spending big bucks on a bunn.
I like a coffee maker that I can see into the resevoir, make sure it isn't gunked up.
