Drinking Water Filters Versus Bottled Water Cost Considerations





Between bottled water and tap water made to pass through drinking water filters, you will almost certainly opt for bottled water. After all, you need not worry about selection, installation, and maintenance of the filters; you can just call the bottled water company and have them deliver to your doorstep the gallons of water you need. And if you want to take it to the next level of luxury in water, you can even have Berg, Evian, Tasmanian Rain and Cloud Juice delivered to you! Now that is epicurean water at its best!

However, these top-of-the-line bottled water brands cost more than your pretty penny. If you are feeling the effects of recession (and very few people are not affected), then drinking water filters are the best solutions for you.

Long-Term Commitment

You will initially spend a few hundred dollars on high-end drinking water filters, the amount of which is lesser for medium-range lines. Depending on the model and capacity, you can reasonably expect five years of use and thousands of gallons before you have to replace the entire filtration system.

On the other hand, bottled water has to be constantly delivered to your house. You will be spending thousands of dollars during the same five year period, which would include rentals on the water dispensers.

For example, your household uses 25 gallons of drinking water a week. If you buy bottled water at $1.50 a gallon, you will be spending at least $9,750 in five years. If you buy filters at about $350, you will be spending around $700 over the same five year period, including replacement of filters!

If you are committed to providing safe drinking water for your family over the long-term, drinking water filters are more economical.

Environmental Concerns

Most bottled water come in disposable containers. You will probably see tons of them in your neighborhood recycling center, which is just the tip of the iceberg where disposed bottled water containers are concerned. What you do not see are the thousands more of plastic containers that do not get the benefit of recycling.

You can just imagine the financial and environmental costs non-biodegradable plastic containers exact on governments and the planet. It might not affect you in the near future but toxic seepage from dumps can enter the water system in your state, subsequently affecting your health. Cliche as it may sound, water does come full circle.

Additives Issues

Admittedly, all water contain impurities and contaminants. Even if you do have the best quality drinking water filters installed in your house, there will be impurities present. And this goes for bottled water, too!

The difference nowadays between bottled water and tap water lies in the additives present in bottled water. Vitamins, minerals, herbs, fruit flavors, even corn syrup are just a few of the additives added that result in the dizzying array of bottled water - sports drinks, carbonated water, mineral water, spring water, fitness water, and glacier water, to name but a few. But how safe are they? You might just find yourself spending on hospital bills, which are yet another added cost.

Ultimately, your choice for drinking water filters should boil down to economy, environment, and enjoyment.
