    Depends on what location you are, not same brand in all places, if you tell exactly where you are will be more easy to get recomendations.

    I live in Santo Domingo near the Malecón and I've been drinking drink tap water for about 8 months. I don't put cloro in it and I don't boil it.

    If you have access to the Alaska brand it is very good. Been using it for 13 years and never had a questionable bottle.

    We like Gerico....... 50 pesos at a colmado, 35 or 40 directly from the lorry. We stop the lorry every 2 weeks and get 10 galons.

    Of course prices are w/o the actual plastic galon, as you hand in the empties to get full ones.
    Count around a hundred peso per 1st time purchase for a galon

    LOL why would you do this? I don't even know Dominicans in that area who drink the tap water. BTW I get mine from Villar Hermanos.
