There is a huge number of different brands and kinds of drinking water; not forgetting the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is very safe and very inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to purchase 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? Could it be just a fad which will soon die? Is all of it the new, cute, multi-colored bottles that are marketed towards teenagers or even younger? If I were an investor, should I put money into this industry or wait to see what will happen?
Now, I can understand in developing countries where the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and many people are dying from the water crisis. So, safe drinking water can be provided in large bottled supplies and also the children and others might be helped. But in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The different forms of water are vast. There is distilled water that is just H2O on one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other end. So, I guess before you decide what water is best for yourself and your family, you need to examine your reasons behind wanting bottled water.
If money is no object and you dont like the taste or looks of municipal water in your city then the sky's the limit in price and variety of bottled drinking water. It is best if you have a small child and you are 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 change in cities supplies would always make them sick. So, bottled water was actually almost a necessity in addition to a convenience.
Bottled water is practically necessary in a hot climate you can invariably have a bottle of water along with you at all times. This is essential in the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or more in some areas of the United States and it is super easy to get dehydrated.
So, it appears as if, except for some of the about reasons, it really is about every individual preference. In other words, if you like bubbles choose sparkling water. If you would like great taste, go for spring water.
However, generally speaking, 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 much more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Basically, there isn't any 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 name of water will make you healthy, then buy it. All in all, most bottled drinking water remains safe and secure 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 important thing is that you simply drink enough water every day to keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
