How many times have you gone to the spigot, run yourself a glass of water, and subsequently grimaced at the taste of the water? Some cities have poorer water quality than others, but regardless of where you live, water from the spigot will have tens of thousands of particles that you don’t necessarily want in your drinking water. This is why bottled water services have become so popular.
Bottled water services are no longer just practical for corporate offices; many individuals and families order bottled water services on a weekly basis, and most companies have tailored plans that will meet the needs of almost any size home or workplace. They allow you to gauge how much water your family consumes on a weekly basis so that you aren’t given more water than you can reasonably consume.
Bottled water services provide a stand upon which each bottle will be placed and a dispenser that will have options such as cold water, hot water and room-temperature water. If you prefer to have only a cold water dispenser, those are available, or you can get one that has all three.
Each week or month, a delivery man will show up with the amount of water bottles you have ordered. Most companies offer them in 3- or 5-gallon bottles so that you can more easily tailer your water consumption. You might also have the option of selecting a plan that includes routine maintenance in case there is a problem with your stand or dispenser.
The types of water that you can order vary widely depending upon the company you choose. For example, just one company might offer Ozarka, Sparkletts, Arrowhead, Deer Park, Ice Mountain and regular distilled. You can choose which type of water you like best, or try all of them for variety. Some will be more expensive than others, so it depends upon how picky you are about your water.
The bottled water service that you choose will give you plans from which to select as well as their recommendation. Some plans include daily service while others will be weekly or monthly, and you can change your plan as you begin to understand your water consumption more clearly. Make sure that the plan you choose offers some level of flexibility, as your needs may change.
You will also want to ask about the contents of the water, as some contain fluoride, sodium and other additives. Further, you should ask about testing procedures, as there is no reason to pay for bottled water that won’t be any cleaner or healthier than the water that comes out of your kitchen spigot.
Water is an essential part of life, and contracting with a bottled water service can ensure that you always have clean, healthy water free of toxins and chemicals that may damage your health. Look through your yellow pages or on the Internet to find bottled water services that cater to your area. You might be surprised at the cost and function of quality bottled water services.
Not only that, but you won’t have to run to the store every time you crave a tall glass of water!
