There is a huge number of different brands and types of drinking water; not to mention the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is quite safe and very inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to purchase bottled water? Is it just the benefit of being able to take small bottles around, so we can have water with us constantly? Could it be just a fad that will soon die? Is all of it the new, cute, multi-colored bottles which are marketed towards teenagers or younger? If I were an investor, can i put money into this industry or wait to find out what will happen?
Now, I can understand in developing countries where the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and many folks are dying from a water crisis. So, safe drinking water could be provided in large bottled supplies and the children as well as others could be helped. But in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The different forms of drinking water are vast. There is distilled water that is just H2O on one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other side. So, I guess prior to deciding what water is best for yourself and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is no object and you 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 best when you have a little child and you’re simply traveling from one supply of drinking water to another city municipal water supply. This was often a problem with my children when they were infants because the difference in cities supplies would always make them sick. So, bottled water was really almost an absolute necessity as well as a convenience.
Bottled water is practically necessary in a very hot climate you can always have a bottle of water along with you constantly. This is essential during the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or more in certain areas of the United States and it is super easy to become dehydrated.
So, it looks as if, except for a few of the about reasons, it really is up to every individual preference. In other words, if you love bubbles choose sparkling water. If you would like great taste, go for spring water.
However, in general, artesian waters rather than surface waters needs to be chosen. Artesian supplies are underground lakes, usually isolated from contamination. Surface waters and near surface wells and springs could be far more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Put simply, there is no water which can make you appear younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you wish to think that a brand of water could make you healthy, then purchase it. All in all, most bottled drinking water is safe and healthy to drink. So if an individual brand makes you drink more water, then that is the one for you since the main and most essential thing is that you drink enough water every single day to keep you and your family healthy and hydrated.
