Dear Mhlobo
I am not sure where it is mentioned that one should avoid bottled water. In my opinion one need only drink bottled water if the water supply in your area is not safe to drink. To save money you can use tap water, but boil it first and then let it cool down before you drink it. If your tap water is not safe and you have money to spare on buying bottled water then you can certainly drink it.
