Now, municipal water is quite safe and extremely inexpensive, so why are people spending billions to purchase water in bottles? Is it just the benefit of being able to take the smaller bottles around, so that we can have water with us all the time? Could it be just a fad that will soon die? Is it all the brand new, cute, multi-colored bottles which are marketed towards teenagers or even younger? If I were a venture capitalist, can i invest in this industry or wait to find out what will happen?
Now, I'm able to understand in developing countries in which the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and lots of people are dying from the water crisis. So, safe drinking water can be provided in large bottled supplies and the children as well as others might be helped. However in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The different types of drinking water are vast. There is distilled water which is just H2O on one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other end. So, I assume 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 not an object and you also do not like the flavour or looks of municipal water in your area then the sky is the limit in price and variety of bottled drinking water. It is best if you have a small 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 kids when they were infants as the difference in cities supplies would always cause them to become sick. So, bottled water was really almost a necessity as well as a convenience.
Bottled water is almost necessary in a hot climate you can invariably have a bottle of water with you at all times. This is essential during the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or more in certain regions of the United States and it's also very easy to become dehydrated.
So, it appears as though, aside from some of the about reasons, it is really about every individual preference. In other words, if you love bubbles choose sparkling water. If you want great taste, opt for spring water.
However, in general, artesian waters as opposed to 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 will make you look younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you want to think that a brand name of water could make you healthy, then purchase it. All in all, most bottled drinking water is safe and healthy to drink. So if one brand enables you to drink more water, then that's the one for you since the main and most essential thing is that you drink enough water every single day to help keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
