There is a huge number of various brands and types of drinking water; not forgetting the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is very safe and extremely inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to buy bottled water? Is it simply the convenience of being able to take the smaller bottles around, so we can have water with us constantly? Is it just 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, should I invest in this industry or wait to see what will happen?
Now, I’m able to understand in developing countries in which the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and many folks are dying from a water crisis. So, safe drinking water could be provided in large bottled supplies and the children and others could 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 before you decide what water is the best for yourself and your family, you need to examine your reasons behind wanting bottled drinking water.
If cash is no object and you dont like the flavour 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 if you have a little child and you are traveling from one supply of drinking water to a different city municipal water supply. This was often a problem with my children when they were infants as the change 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 always possess 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, except for some of the about reasons, it really is about each individual preference. In short, if you like bubbles choose sparkling water. If you want great taste, go for spring water.
However, in general, 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 can be far more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Put simply, there isn’t any water which can 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 one brand enables you to drink more water, then that’s the one for you because the main and most important thing is that you drink enough water every single day to keep you and your family healthy and hydrated.
