Now, municipal water is very safe and extremely inexpensive, so why are people spending billions to buy water in bottles? Is it simply the convenience of being able to take the smaller bottles with us, so that we can have water around all the time? Is it just a fad that will soon die out? Is it all the brand new, cute, multi-colored bottles that are marketed towards teenagers or younger? If I were an investor, can i put money into this industry or wait to find out what is going to happen?
Now, I'm able to understand in developing countries where the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and lots of people are dying from a water crisis. So, safe drinking water could be provided in large bottled supplies and also 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 which is just H2O in one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other end. So, I guess prior to deciding what water is best for yourself and your family, you need to examine your reasons behind wanting bottled water.
If money is not an object and you dont 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 small child and you are traveling from one source of drinking water to a different city municipal water supply. This was commonly 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 almost necessary in a hot climate you can invariably have a bottle of water with you constantly. This is important during the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or more in certain areas of the United States and it's also super easy to get dehydrated.
So, it looks as though, except for some of the about reasons, it really is up to every individual preference. In short, if you like bubbles choose sparkling water. If you want great taste, opt for spring water.
However, generally speaking, artesian waters rather than surface waters should be chosen. Artesian supplies are underground lakes, usually isolated from contamination. Surface waters and near surface wells and springs could be much more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Put simply, there is no water which will make you appear younger or healthy if you do not 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, the majority of bottled drinking water is safe and healthy to drink. So if an individual brand enables you to drink more water, then that's the one for you since the main and most important thing is that you simply drink enough water every day to help keep you and your family healthy and hydrated.
