Like many have said, try adding fruit. Also something like peppermint or other flavor mint (orange, pineapple, chocolate, etc -- don't know all of them) leaves to the water. I have found filtering my water makes it taste better.
Someone mentioned MIO for flavoring water. I think that Kroger also has their brand and don't know if there are others. At the Diabetes Expo I went to Sweet Leaf Stevia was there with some new ones they have. I tried a sample of Raspberry Lemon and liked that. It was much better than the MIO I tried and threw away (couldn't stand it) IMO.
I also have a problem with drinking enough water because whenever I drink it my gut hurts horribly.

I don't know if you like carbonated water but I've been drinking grapefruit flavoured Perrier and I love it as an alternative to regular water. No fake flavours or colours. They also make lemon and lime.

A lot of people just don't like water - me being one of them. Also, for some, water can aggravate acid burn. If you can't face regularly sipping a little water, try having it in a cup of tea, watered down juice, etc. The only real reason you need 'water' is that you need fluids. IF you drink a lot of soda or juice, obviously water doesn't have the calories or additives, but apart from that, any of the other drinks still provide fluids, as does foods - think casseroles, soups, milk ..... even cheese has a certain amount of fluid.
