Now, municipal water is quite 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 with us, 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 a venture capitalist, should I invest in this industry or wait to see what is going to happen?
Now, I can understand in developing countries in which 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 might be helped. But 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 that is just H2O in one end and spa waters with carbonates and minerals on the other side. So, I guess before you decide what water is best for you and your family, you must examine your reasons behind wanting bottled water.
If money is not an object and you also do not like the taste or looks of municipal water in your city then the sky is the limit in price and selection of bottled drinking water. It is convenient when 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 change 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 almost necessary in a very hot climate you can invariably have a bottle of water along with you at all times. This is essential in the summer time where temperatures can get over 100 degrees or more in some regions of the US and it is super easy to become dehydrated.
So, it appears as though, aside from a few of the about reasons, it is really up to every individual preference. In short, if you love bubbles go for sparkling water. If you would like great taste, go for spring water.
However, generally speaking, artesian waters rather than 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.
Basically, there is no water which will make you look younger or healthy if you dont live a healthy lifestyle. But if you want to believe that a brand 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 is the one for you because the main and most essential thing is that you drink enough water every single day to help keep you and your family healthy and hydrated.
