There are a huge number of different brands and kinds of drinking water; not forgetting the municipal/tap waters supplies. Now, municipal water is very safe and extremely inexpensive, so why are people spending billions to buy water in bottles? Is it just the benefit of being able to take small bottles around, so we can have water with us all the time? Could it be just 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 put money into 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 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. 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 which is just H2O on one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other end. So, I guess before you decide what water is the best for you and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled water.
If money is no object and you 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 convenient if 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 problem with my children when they were infants because the change 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 practically necessary in a very hot climate you can always possess a bottle of water with you constantly. This is important during the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or more in certain regions of the United States and it’s also very easy to become dehydrated.
So, it looks as though, except for some of the about reasons, it is really about every individual preference. In short, if you love bubbles choose sparkling water. If you want great taste, go for spring water.
However, in general, 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 can be far more easily contaminated with industrial or agriculture run-off.
Basically, there is no water which can make you appear younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you want to think that a brand name of water will make you healthy, then purchase it. All in all, most bottled drinking water remains safe and secure and healthy to drink. So if one brand makes you drink more water, then that’s the one for you because the main and most essential thing is that you drink enough water every single day to keep yourself and your family healthy and hydrated.
