There is a huge number of different brands and kinds of drinking water; not to mention the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is very safe and extremely inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to buy water in bottles? Is it just the benefit of being able to take small bottles around, so we can have water with us all the time? Could it be merely a fad which will soon die out? Is it all the new, cute, multi-colored bottles that are marketed towards teenagers or 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 where the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and many 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 might 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 before you decide what water is the best for yourself and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled water.
If money is no object and you do not like the taste or looks of municipal water in your area then the sky is the limit in price and variety of bottled drinking water. It is convenient when you have a small child and you're simply 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 as the change in cities supplies would always cause them to become sick. So, bottled water was actually almost an absolute necessity as well as a convenience.
Bottled water is almost necessary in a very hot climate you can invariably have a bottle of water along with you constantly. This is important during the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or more in some areas of the US and it is very easy to become dehydrated.
So, it appears as if, except for a few of the about reasons, it is really up to each 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 needs to 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.
Basically, there is no water which will make you look 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 buy it. All in all, the majority of bottled drinking water is safe and healthy to drink. So if one brand enables you to drink more water, then that is the one for you because the main and most important thing is that you simply drink enough water every single day to keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
