I can tell you for a fact that bottled Spring water is not completely free of all bacteria. We have a tattoo shop nearby by that was using bottled spring water and some people got some really nasty infections. guess what was determined to be the source of the infection?? That being said, spring water is all I have ever used in making wine and I have never had a problem.
I've used Spring, RO and distilled. I like the taste of the Local spring water, so I use that when I can. But with extract, I figure, as long as the water tastes good, it good...well, I never use my tap water...

My old tap water was high in chalk so it was no good for lighter beers. I used RO or distilled when I lived there. Now that I've moved I get a blend of that water source and another reservoir the chalk content is lower and the hardness is lower so I've made good beers just filtering. YMMV.
