What is the best way to obtain non-tap drinking water at home?

I just move to a new neighborhood, and the tap water isn't the greatest. We have several 1-2 gallon water bottles and dispensers. What is the lowest cost and healthiest way to fill these bottles? Here are some of my local options:
1) Water store
2) Water dispenser in front of the super market
3) Home filtration system (e.g. Britta)
4) Buying bottled "spring water"
5) Water service (Alhambra)
Also, how is "de-ionization" different from distilled water? I know that distilled water isn't good for drinking water - without minerals the water tastes flat. Does the same thing happen when the water is de-ionized?
I tried googling and ended up more confused than when I started. If anyone knows of some good sources on this topic, links would be greatly appreciated!
