There are a huge number of different 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 water in bottles? Is it just the convenience of being able to take small bottles around, so we can have water with us constantly? Could it be just a fad that will soon die out? Is it all the brand new, cute, multi-colored bottles which are marketed towards teenagers or even younger? If I were a venture capitalist, can i invest in this industry or wait to see what will happen?
Now, I’m able to understand in developing countries where the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and lots of people are dying from a water crisis. So, safe drinking water can be provided in large bottled supplies and the children as well as others could be helped. However in developed countries with safe municipal water supplies it doesnt make economic sense.
The different types 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 end. So, I guess before you decide what water is best for yourself and your family, you must examine your reasons for wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is not an 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’re simply traveling from one source of drinking water to a different city municipal water supply. This was often a problem with my kids when they were infants as the difference in cities supplies would always make them sick. So, bottled water was really almost an absolute necessity in addition to a convenience.
Bottled water is practically necessary in a very hot climate you can invariably possess a bottle of water with you at all times. This is important during the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or more in some areas of the US and it is very easy to get dehydrated.
So, it looks as though, aside from some of the about reasons, it is really up to each individual preference. In other words, if you love bubbles go for sparkling water. If you want great taste, go for spring water.
However, generally speaking, artesian waters as opposed to 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.
Put simply, there isn’t any water which can make you look younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you wish to believe that a brand name of water will make you healthy, then purchase it. All in all, the majority of bottled drinking water is safe and healthy to drink. So if one brand makes you drink more water, then that is the one for you because the main and most essential thing is that you simply drink enough water every single day to help keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
