There are a huge number of various brands and types of drinking water; not forgetting the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is quite safe and very inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to buy water in bottles? Is it simply the convenience of being able to take the smaller bottles around, so we might have water with us constantly? Is it 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, can i put money into this industry or wait to find out what will happen?
Now, I can 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 could be provided in large bottled supplies and also 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 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 side. So, I guess prior to deciding what water is the best for you and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled water.
If money is not an object and you also dont like the taste or looks of municipal water in your area then the sky is the limit in price and selection of bottled drinking water. It is convenient when you have a small 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 children when they were infants because the change in cities supplies would always make them 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 always have a bottle of water along with you constantly. This is important in the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or more in some regions of the US and it is super easy to get dehydrated.
So, it appears as if, aside from a few of the about reasons, it is really up to every individual preference. In short, if you like 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 much more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Basically, there is no water which will make you appear younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you want to believe 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's the one for you because the main and most essential thing is that you drink enough water every day to keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
