I was in Evian, France once. I was just driving through but made a
point to get out of the car and drink from the water fountain. I
presume it was Evian water.
I've heard that bottled water costs between 200 times and 200,000
times what tap water costs.
I've also driven through Mariananske Lasne (Marianbad). I guess we
had parked on the back side, away from the main entrance. We got out
and quickly came across saw the springhouse where everyone was filling
their cups from the pipe there. The cups looked like giant Meerschaum
pipes, in that they were china and had a china tube going to the
bottom of the cup, so people could drink and look straight ahead at
the same time, while walking.
Some 8-year old kid showed us how we could go 20 feet away and get the
same water straight from the stream for free, so we emptied our
canteens and filled it with "health water", my name for it. I was 5
miles awaly before I took my first drink, and it was terrrible, and I
was glad I hadn't paid for it. I had no other source of water for
probably an hour. Commmunist Czechoslovakia wasn't full of 7-11's and
restaurants to buy a drink at, or even many gas stations with
bathrooms and water from the sink.

Even the high priced stuff needs maintenance. It should be standard
practice to change the air in your tires 2X a year. When produced it
is at the proper temperature for the season. If you use winter air in
summer, the pressure rise is incorrect as it was colder when produced.
The summer heat will make the pressure rise further.
