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 extremely inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to purchase bottled water? Is it just the benefit of being able to take the smaller bottles with us, so we can have water around all the time? Could it be merely a fad which 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, should I invest in this industry or wait to find out what is going to happen?
Now, I’m able to understand in developing countries in which 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 the children and others could be helped. But in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The different types of 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 best for you and your family, you need to examine your reasons behind wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is no object and you also dont like the taste or looks of municipal water in your area then the sky’s the limit in price and variety of bottled drinking water. It is best when you have a little child and you are traveling from one supply of drinking water to a different city municipal water supply. This was commonly a challenge with my children when they were infants as the difference in cities supplies would always cause them to become sick. So, bottled water was really almost an absolute necessity in addition to a convenience.
Bottled water is almost necessary in a hot climate you can always possess a bottle of water along with you at all times. This is important during the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or more in some areas of the United States and it’s also very easy to become dehydrated.
So, it appears as if, except for some of the about reasons, it really is up to each individual preference. In other words, if you love bubbles choose sparkling water. If you want great taste, opt 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.
Basically, there isn’t any water which can make you look younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you want to believe that a brand 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 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.
