    tap water is fine

    my hamsters have always been drinking it.

    but if you feel that your tap water isn't suitable use rain water

    it is natural and all animals love it

    what you need to do is put a bowl outside when there's rain and when the bowl is full pour it into the water bottle.

    i hope i helped

    good luck (:

    I have a really nice filter for my water, so I always use that for my hamsters, but if you don't have a filter, tap is probably better than bottled.

    Tap Water is fine. Unless you're tap water is unsafe just fill their bottle from the faucet.

    I only give my animals distilled water. Even regular bottled water still has a lot of crap in it.

    If your water is filthy like mine is and has chlorine and unfiltered you're better off bottled
