If you want fresh, clean, great-tasting drinking water, a delivery service is not the way to go. Instead, think about all the in-home water purification options that are available at economic prices. That way, you have all the fresh, clean drinking water you want, anytime you want it!
Continue reading to learn the top 3 reasons why you should stop having your water delivered by a water delivery service.
Most people believe that those 5-gallon water jugs are a terrific alternative to tap water and bottled water in terms of cost, convenience, and health. Although this is not completely untrue, business and homes can do much better. In fact, there are several notable shortcomings of water delivery services that affect your health, your budget, and even the surrounding environment.
But these 3 make the top of the list:
❶ Cost Savings
You might think that your weekly water jug delivery is cost effective since it is cheaper than bottled water; but the truth is that you could be saving hundreds of dollars a year if you replace your water delivery service with a more economical and efficient method of water purification. Rather than spending $20 to $30 a month on jug delivery and water cooler stands, you could make the initial investment of installing a quality water filtration system directly to your water intake lines, so that you are only spending a fraction of that cost after you break even from the initial cost of purchasing and installation. Talk to a local and trusted Indianapolis water purification plumber for professional advice and price comparisons in your area.
❷ Water Quality
People love to drink their bottled water and water jugs because they believe it is healthier and cleaner than tap water. However, there is really not much of a difference between their water filtration methods and the methods used by the city’s water treatment plants. What this means is that you are essentially drinking the same quality of water, but for more money. A tap water filtration system eliminates excess contaminants and chemicals in ground and well water (i.e. iron, mold, microbes, benzene, tri-halomethanes, arsenic, chlorine, etc.), without having to pay a monthly stipend for the rest of your foreseeable future. Even worse, some studies suggest that plastic bottles may contain BPA (bisphenol), which is an industrial chemical used to make certain plastics and resins, and can leak into water and potentially be cancerous.
❸ Environmental Pollution
Plastic, although recyclable, is manufactured using enormous amounts of fossil fuels and water. Then even more resources are used to bottle up water and send them across the world. This means they are not as “sustainable” as they are suggested to be. Furthermore, plastic water bottles and jugs are not biodegradable; so if they are not recycled, they just load up landfills and create more man-made waste. Overall, plastic does pollute the environment. By quitting your water delivery service, you are contributing to an initiative that protects and preserves our earth’s natural resources!
