Water… Bottled or Tap… Is there a difference

 

We all know that water is an essential part of one’s daily diet and much needed for the body. It helps to quench our thirst, detoxify the body by removing junk from the body. It has many benefits to the body. Cool crisp, wonderfully refreshing water comes in many options. Tap water, well water, spring water, bottled filtered water. Is there a difference? In my eyes Yes.

Taste for one. I’ve tasted and drank a lot of water from bottled filtered water, purified water, spring water, expensive bottled water, as well as tap water. Altho taste is a factor it is not much of one in my eyes.

Bottled purified water for the most part is water that comes from a normal public source such as Tap water that has been filtered and processed to remove nutrients, minerals etc from the water. So you are in fact paying more for water that comes from a tap source than you need to.

Spring water while I do prefer spring water’s taste over the slight chlorinated taste of tap water in many areas, you can purchase filters for your faucet that can reduce that taste to make it much cleaner tasting.  Even among spring waters the tastes are different if you have good taste buds and can taste it.

Expensive bottled water… hmm kind of tough here in my own opinion it’s the same as spring water just with a fancier label and a higher price.

When it comes to water make it cold, get your own filter for your faucet, and save yourself a lot of money. Over the course of a year lets do the math. If you drink 1 bottle of spring or bottled water bought in the stores for $1.50 – $1.89 a bottle for 357 days that is 675 dollars rounded that you spend in a year. That’s a lot of money for something you can get from your own faucet. And if you rent you’re in even better luck because you don’t pay for it at all. If you own you still only spend about $3.45 per 1000 gallons of water.

If you want to save your money to spend on something else buy yourself a filter, get a few bottles you can reuse, put some in the fridge, and carry it all day long with you. You’ll be saving yourself allot of money in the long run and still drinking a lot of water.
