I've used tap water as well as water that comes out of those big blue bottles (Canadian Springs) and they both had the same fail/success rates. This was recently posted at the Advance Cultivation secton on theforest floor:

Credit to WitchiePoo, as this is not my work.

~ Test done to determine level of contams in different water sources.
~ Water tested : Tap water, Boiled Tap water, boiled rain water, bottled spring water
~ These were exposed to tryptic soy agar, and incubated at 28?C for 4 days. Boiled samples were brought to a full boil and immediately remove from heat.
~ Results ordered by number of differing contams present.
~Best to worst:
.Boiled rain water, - 0 contams
.Spring water (bottled) - 0 contams
.Boiled tap water - 1 contam
.Tap water - 5 different contams (*nasty* looking)

~Conclusions - it's obvious that tap water sucks, my city is 200k people, with chlorinated, UV and filtration. I guess these organisms are slightly resistant to disinfectants and thrive on the muck lining of the city pipes. Their resistance might explain why boiled tap water took second place ahead of unboiled spring water.

Hope you find this interesting. If you want to see more tests, (like air purity) - let me know in this thread.

brita's nice, so's distilled. i always liked mineral water, b/c it bubbles :) but youll sterilize it- likely anything nasty in the water will be zapped before you innoculate.
