The bottled drinking water industry is growing faster and this write-up will explore some of the reasons why

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 why are people spending billions to purchase bottled water? Is it just the benefit of being able to take the smaller bottles with us, so that we might have water around all the time? Could it be merely a fad that will soon die? Is it all the brand 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 find out what is going to 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 could be provided in large bottled supplies and also 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 drinking 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 assume prior to deciding what water is best for yourself and your family, you need to examine your reasons behind wanting bottled drinking water.

If money is no object and you also dont like the taste or looks of municipal water in your city then the sky’s the limit in price and variety of bottled drinking water. It is convenient when you have a little child and you are traveling from one supply of drinking water to another city municipal water supply. This was often a challenge with my children when they were infants as 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 almost necessary in a hot climate you can always have a bottle of water with you constantly. This is important in the summer time where temperatures could get over 100 degrees or more in certain areas of the US and it is very 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 rather than 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.

Basically, there is no water which will make you appear younger or healthy if you do not live a healthy lifestyle. But if you want to think that a brand of water will make you healthy, then buy it. All in all, the majority of 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 since the main and most essential thing is that you simply drink enough water every day to help keep you and your family healthy and hydrated.
