There are a huge number of different brands and types of drinking water; not to mention the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is quite safe and very inexpensive, so just why are people spending billions to buy water in bottles? Is it just the convenience of being able to take the smaller bottles around, so that we can have water around all the time? Is it just a fad which will soon die? Is it all me seltzer 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 in which the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and many folks are dying from the water crisis. So, safe drinking water can be provided in large bottled supplies and the children and others might be helped. However in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The different types of water are vast. There is distilled water that 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 yourself and your family, you need to examine your reasons for wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is not an object and you also do not like the flavour or looks of municipal water in your city then the sky is 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 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 difference 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 with you constantly. This is essential during the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or even more in some regions of the United States and it is very easy to become dehydrated.
So, it looks as if, except for a few of the about reasons, it really is about every individual preference. In short, if you love bubbles choose sparkling water. If you want great taste, opt for spring water.
However, in general, artesian waters as opposed to 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 will make you look younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you wish to believe that a brand of water could make you healthy, then purchase 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 since the main and most important thing is that you drink enough water every day to help keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
