In flush times, the convenience of buying a bottle of water seemed to justify its $1-plus price. But some consumers are becoming more reluctant to cough up cash for something that comes virtually free from the tap — especially because their bottled water may have originated there anyway.

According to Health Canada, except for mineral water and spring water, "it is possible for bottled water to be produced from municipal tap water that has undergone a treatment process to lower the mineral content and/or remove chemicals such as chlorine."
