Bitter Chemical Taste in the 600ml Bottled Spring Water
Started drinking this spring water 2 days ago for the first time, it had a bitter chemical taste each time I drank it. Last night I developed stomach pain that eased by morning. Drank more this morning and within an hour same pains have returned. Something is not right with the water and the Batch label seems to be sun faded like its been stored in the sun (expiry date: 12 MAR 22)
Spring water or is it. ?
Last time we were in Armidale we purchased 3 x 10 litres of supposed spring water, because Woolworths didn’t have any. This one that we got from Cloes has a nasty taste and leaves a sort of white colour in the bottom of the electric jug. I have been getting a bit of diarrhoea lately and now wonder if this was the cause.
As we live about an hour away from Armidale it isn’t just a simple trip to take it back, but certainly we won’t be finishing the bottle that we have decanted, and will certainly take the others back when we can get out and about again.
My son and I got a headache seconds after drinking Coles bottled water
I would like to know where does Coles get this water from??
It's far from Spring Water... unless the Springs are polluted.
My 8 year old son and I drank a few sips of this bottled water and within seconds we both got a headache. Not a coincidence.
Coles we would like an explanation!
Purchased from Coles at Figtree NSW.
I purchased this water in the large pack 2 years ago and felt sick in the stomach followed by headaches in the following days. I only drink water, so I also knew it didn’t taste normal. I accidentally drank a bottle last week at my parents without realising, and had stomach pains/felt like I was going to be sick for hours after. I have read many reviews of similar experiences.
Purchased in January 2020.
Foul smell, think it gave me gastro.
We live on a property with no other drinking water. We have been purchasing Coles water for years with no problem. The latest batch (of the alternative supplier due to drought) type bottles smell foul. I am pretty sure I got gastro from the last drink I had. The packaging also appears defective with the wine casket type taps leaking. I would avoid drinking this water. I have complained to Coles.
Time to Have Coles Australian Spring water Tested!!!
My son picked up a pack of Coles Natural Australian Spring Water December 19 2019 at Coles Bendigo - This water is contaminated - I used to Drill Water Bores for a living and this product is unsuitable for human consumption (Tandrill) - Would like to get some tested - It stinks and tastes of plastic - If this is borewater it needs to be closed!

Coles 10L Spring Water - bad taste, sick family, terrible new tap
We have been purchasing Coles 10L spring water for more than 6 months. First they changed the tap to a cheap version which leaks through the fridge and every time we poor a glass. Now the taste and smell - my wife and I both have sore throats and it just smells and tastes off. This needs to be investigated and removed from the shelves!
Coles should be sued for packaging sewer water.
Both plastic bottles went off very quickly bought Dec 2019 and made me feel ill so I wanted to make sure I wasn't imaging things and sure enough something disgisting maybe a terrorist plot to kill westerners. Wouldn't surprise me. Their meat was also off. Why do Coles hire terrorists as staff?

Urgent, do not drink will make you very sick
Purchased 6, 10 litre bottles for xmas holidays. The water started to smell after being opened for a day. Then realised I was making both myself and wife very sick.
Was in process of throwing it out and the dog had a few small licks of it, % mins later the dog threw-up.
Must be something very bad in this water, ned to get it off the shelves.
I have kept a sample but not sure what to do with it???
Why did they change the packaging
I have been buying 10 litre Coles water for years now because I don’t trust the tap water in my area ... and you mofos decide to change the bottle from a plastic easy to use tap on a rectangular container to a goon bag tap which leaks constantly throughout my fridge. The new awful aftertaste is probably from the new plastic box - it’s disgusting. The goon bag tap is inconvenient and harder for elderly people to use also cause you gotta hold it for ages to get the water out instead of flicking the plastic tap like before and letting the water rush out on its own. Change it back please. I’m changing water brands because of how much water leaks out of it in my fridge. Say no to the goon bag tap

10 litre bottles taste like sewer water smells
I've been buying Coles water for many years and never had any problem up until last week when I made the mistake of buying 3 X 10 litre bottles that smell so bad and taste so bad it makes you gag. I havent taken them back for refund but will be in the next day or two.

I get tension headaches terrible headaches I've worked out I get them after I have been drinking Coles water I only buy Coles water if I'm desperate but it's definitely the Coles water giving me headaches
Sadly I still had to rate 1 STAR!
Australian Spring Water purchased at the Coles Express at the Baulkham Hills Shells smells/tastes like burned plastic or/and metal. My kids complained about it which I did not believe at first since I have been purchasing the same brand for several years but today, I have witnessed that you should be away from that water, get a full refund and an EXPLANATION from COLES!
