There is a huge number of various brands and types of drinking water; not to mention the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is very safe and very inexpensive, so why are people spending billions to purchase water in bottles? Is it simply the benefit of being able to take the smaller bottles with us, so we can have water around constantly? Could it be merely a fad that will soon die? Is all of it 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 see what is going to 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 could be provided in large bottled supplies and the children and others might be helped. But in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The various 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 best for yourself and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is not an object and you do not like the flavour 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 supply of drinking water to another city municipal water supply. This was often a challenge with my kids when they were infants as the difference in cities supplies would always make them sick. So, bottled water was actually almost an absolute necessity in addition to 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 essential in the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or even more in some regions of the US and it is super easy to become dehydrated.
So, it looks as though, except for some of the about reasons, it really is up to every individual preference. In other words, if you like bubbles go for sparkling water. If you would like 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.
Basically, there is no water which can 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 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 since the main and most important thing is that you drink enough water every single day to help keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
