Health-minded people spend a lot of time researching and comparing what they put into their bodies. When it comes to drinking water, people can choose from a variety of options. Some prefer one brand over another, while others like a certain taste. But, which type of water—filtered, spring, tap, or distilled—is the best option for drinking? Indy Soft Water compares each in this article.
Before making its way to your home, water travels from its source through a water treatment facility for processing. During water treatment, the processing kills bacteria and other microorganisms and filters out impurities and debris. However, many people disapprove of the chlorination process and worry about chlorine in the body. Additionally, older homes carry the additional risk of lead due to older pipes and plumbing systems. Finally, impurities, additives, and chemicals in water can also make their way into your food when used for cooking.
Spring water comes from actual springs as its source. However, some companies transport the spring water for bottling instead of bottling at the source. When that happens, the tanker trucks moving the water protect it from contamination. Two methods they use most often are chlorination or ozonation. Before bottling, the chlorinated water gets filtered to remove any remaining chlorine.
When it comes to which type of water is best for drinking, distilled water falls short. In general terms, you get distilled water by boiling it. The method attempts to separate H2O from impurities with different boiling points. Still, the process may not remove all contaminants, especially depending on its boiling point. Therefore, more filtration or purification should occur to confidently remove all impurities and chemicals.
Filtered water occurs on a spectrum, meaning filtration levels can vary. The more filtered the water, the purer it becomes. While the water source may be tap water, the purification process can eliminate enough chemicals, metals, and other debris to produce crystal clear pure water. In other words, the amount of filtration directly relates to drinking water purity.
Reverse osmosis and deionization produce deeper water purification levels. Therefore, using our reverse osmosis or point-of-use drinking water systems means you gain access to the purest water available.
