There is 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 extremely inexpensive, so why are people spending billions to purchase bottled water? Is it simply the convenience of being able to take the smaller bottles with us, so that we can have water around all the time? Could it be merely a fad which will soon die out? Is all of it the new, cute, multi-colored bottles which 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 can understand in developing countries where the supplies of safe, clean drinking water are rare and lots of people are dying from the 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 various types of water are vast. There is distilled water that is just H2O on 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 you and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled drinking water.
If money is not an object and you also do not like the taste or looks of municipal water in your area 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 supply of drinking water to a different city municipal water supply. This was often a problem with my kids when they were infants because the difference in cities supplies would always cause them to become sick. So, bottled water was really almost an absolute necessity as well as a convenience.
Bottled water is practically necessary in a hot climate you can invariably possess a bottle of water with you constantly. This is important during the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or more in certain areas of the United States and it’s also super easy to get dehydrated.
So, it appears as though, except for a few of the about reasons, it is really 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 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 could be much more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Put simply, there isn’t any water which will make you appear younger or healthy if you do not live a healthy lifestyle. But if you wish to believe that a brand of water will make you healthy, then buy 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 since the main and most essential thing is that you drink enough water every day to help keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
