A refreshing article on why you should get your water delivered instead of out of the tap.
Despite the level of water quality in most western nations being cleaner and of a better quality than ever before thanks to filtering technology, nonetheless more and more people are, interestingly, getting their water delivered and drinking out of water coolers rather than instant water from household taps.
On its face, this seems somewhat counterproductive and unnecessarily costly, but when you dig into the details of specifically why people are choosing this option, some factors become altogether clear as to the reasons behind their choice. For this article, we’ve taken some of those reasons and compiled into 5 points the reasons why you might wish to switch from tap water to delivered bottled water.
1. Water Standards
Water standards can vary not just in country to country but also in region to region. Some people may be more mindfully conscious of their health and thus decide to get bottled water delivered. For those who personally buy bottled water themselves, and use a filter when dispensing it, scientific tests have shown that those at-home filters are only able to filter a certain amount of chemicals and minerals found in tap water (another reason many don’t use it), while water delivery services tend to get their supply direct from the source in mountains or other natural springs, leading to a purity and taste that simply can’t be equalled.
We all know what it’s like, and just how terribly inconvenient it is, when you discover something in the kitchen is either finished or running low and you need to immediately head to the store to replace it. This is a recurring problem for those who purchase their own bottled water, and it’s one of the main reasons why many of those same people have opted to get their water delivered. Quite simply, it really does save time to have your water delivered right to your door at an agreed and altogether more convenient time for you. Life is hectic enough as it is, if we can arrange some areas of it to suit our schedules, it just makes everything that much easier, and with a water delivery service, you can do just that.
Perhaps the most important and most popular reason for people opting to use water delivery services is this one. They simply don’t trust tap water to be as pure and uncontaminated as they would like and also feel at-home filters are only of limited means in filtering out chemicals and other minerals they view as contaminants. Plus, it’s estimated that around 75% of Americans are dehydrated on a daily basis and that this can cause long-term health problems. With delivered water, not only is it considerably more pure in content, but people who get it delivered drink much more water per day than those who do not. Dehydration can affect cognitive ability, memory, and attention span, while those that are consistently hydrated have more oxygen flowing in their system, giving them better digestion, weight management, better skin, and even increased anti-aging properties.
4. Instant Cool and Hot Water
Very often when you contact a water delivery service for the first time, many of them will also supply their own water dispensers, and you can often get a very good deal on them too. So not only do you save money there, you also have instant hot and cold water at your fingertips as most modern dispensers have separate built-in cooling and heating sections, giving you instant access to both. This can actually save time as you don’t have to boil a kettle for hot water and also saves space in your fridge when you don’t need bottles of cool water in there.
5. Less Waste
With a water delivery service, they will collect the empty bottles of water you have used when delivering the new and full ones. This means that you are spared the inevitable, and considerable, garbage pile of empty bottles in your home going into the trash, leaving you less garbage to dispose of. Not only that, but the water bottles used by the delivery service are steam-washed and reused, so it’s not only super-convenient for you but also environmentally sustainable. A win-win situation for everyone.
Here’s hoping this article has proven both entertaining and educational for you. Water delivery is becoming more and more popular, and when you see the reasons, it’s not difficult to ascertain why so many people are opting for this convenient, healthy, and environmentally friendly option.
