There is a huge number of various brands and types of drinking water; not to mention the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is quite safe and extremely inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to purchase bottled water? Is it simply the convenience of being able to take small bottles with us, so that we might have water with us all the time? Could it be just a fad that will soon die? Is it all the new, cute, multi-colored bottles that are marketed towards teenagers or younger? If I were a venture capitalist, should I invest in this industry or wait to see what is going to happen?
Now, I can understand in developing countries in which the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and lots of folks are dying from a water crisis. So, safe drinking water can be provided in large bottled supplies and the children and others could be helped. But in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The various types of water are vast. There is distilled water that is just H2O in one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other side. So, I guess before you decide what water is the best for yourself and your family, you need to examine your reasons for wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is no object and you also do not like the taste or looks of municipal water in your city then the sky’s the limit in price and selection of bottled drinking water. It is convenient when you have a little child and you’re simply traveling from one supply of drinking water to a different city municipal water supply. This was often a challenge with my kids when they were infants because the difference in cities supplies would always cause them to become sick. So, bottled water was really almost a necessity in addition to a convenience.
Bottled water is practically necessary in a hot climate you can invariably have a bottle of water with you at all times. This is important in the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or even more in some areas of the United States and it is super easy to get dehydrated.
So, it appears as though, aside from some of the about reasons, it is really about each individual preference. In other words, if you love bubbles choose sparkling water. If you would like great taste, opt for spring water.
However, in general, artesian waters as opposed to surface waters should be chosen. Artesian supplies are underground lakes, usually isolated from contamination. Surface waters and near surface wells and springs can be far more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Put simply, there isn’t any water which will make you look younger or healthy if you do not live a healthy lifestyle. But if you wish to believe that a brand name of water will make you healthy, then purchase it. All in all, the majority of bottled drinking water remains safe and secure and healthy to drink. So if one brand makes you drink more water, then that is the one for you because the main and most important thing is that you drink enough water every single day to keep you and your family healthy and hydrated.
