It is always interesting to hear people argue about bottled water. There are plenty of good reasons to drink Bottled water, especially if it is HappyWater. The technologies and filter systems that HappyWater uses can filter out traces of bacteria, viruses and any other contaminants that are in the water and gives people an extremely clean water source. There is a reason that almost all soft drink manufacturer use reverse-osmosis systems to purify the water even though they could also use Tap Water. The issue is that tap water can easily be contaminated because it is very hard to control the logistics of transporting the water to the consumer. Of course, most Municipality water Treatment Plants are producing clean water, but after it leaves the plant, it goes through a huge network of underground pipes that could have been constructed many years ago. Some pipes are 20 to 40 years old and can be made from anything ranging from concrete, iron, even lead. In some cases, the water was flowing through 50 km or more of pipes until it arrives at the consumer’s house. In the process it collected up hundreds of particles, some are harmless but others could be very bad. Of course, the consumer could buy a water analysing set to find out what contaminants are in the water and test each morning because every day, there is a potential that a pipe busts and something enters the supply. Even if you get a simple particle counter then you will find out that your tap water has between 50 and 200 particles when it arrives on your tap. It is actually interesting because the cleaner the water enters the pipe system the more contaminates it can collect.
Old pipes can become lined with minerals, pesticides and other pollution.
It is interesting to see what mineral’s toxins are within allowed limits of most western water supplies. You can check with the Environmental Protection Agency to see what contaminates are allowed in your area, it is alarming on what is allowed to be in the tap water. Sure most are small amounts but considering that we should drink about 3 Liter Water a day then we drink over 1000 Liter a year. According to most regulations, you could drink some 10 mg of Arsenic, 7 billion asbestos fibres, 4 Liter of Fluoride or up to 1 Liter of Chloride and this would-be OK according to most public standards. It could even be that new substances like hormones and other pharmaceutical substances are not even on the list.
Bottled water, such as HappyWater is tightly regulated in Malaysia, and it is filled in the controlled environment of factories after it is purified using state of the art technologies. This means that the water is in its pure state and delivered to the consumer directly. This way, no contaminants can be collected, and the consumer can drink the water as pure as it was filled into the bottle. Purified Bottled Water is treated in the same manner as a soft drink or juice you buy from the shop. Imagine if your cola or orange juice flowed through 50 km of pipes before it enters your glass. Many people seem to say that purified bottled water has no minerals and vitamins. Well, this is correct; all these harmful substances are filtered out, and the water is really pure. Especially in our time of age, our diet is quite diverse, and we get more than the daily needs of minerals from our food. It is good to drink pure water that can actually flush out the harmful and excess minerals from the kidneys that we get every day from our food and environment. However, if you want some minerals in your water than rather squeeze in a fresh orange, lemon or add a grain of salt.
Mostly, it is common sense, when did you drink the last time from a well or spring without imagining that there could be a irresponsible polluter around the corner? It is unfortunate, but our planet is more polluted every day and the rain is transporting pollution even into the remotest areas around the world. This is why water is not a sure candidate to get clean water. Mineral waters are unfiltered and are bottled the way it came out of the well. Therefore, Filtered Bottled Water is the only sure way to get clean controlled water to the consumer.
