Have you ever gone to your refrigerator, thirsty for a bottle of water, and discovered that you are completely out? What do you do? You certainly aren’t going to grab a glass and head for the kitchen sink. It would be awfully hard to drink tap water after getting used to the sparkling clean taste of bottled water! Short of running to the store to grab some of your favorite kind of bottled water, is there anything you can do to solve this problem?
While it won’t solve the problem this time, the smartest, healthiest, and most convenient solution to the problem of running out of bottled water is to find yourself a local bottled water delivery service. You’ll end up drinking more water than ever when you have your own rented bottled water cooler in your home.
Bottled water coolers are most commonly rented on a monthly basis from the bottled water company. You’ve probably seen coolers like this in a doctor’s office or a business office. The ones for home use are designed as such, and look very elegant and functional, whether they are located in a kitchen, mud room, or pantry. These coolers are usually made of aluminium, stainless steel, some plastic, or a combination of all three. The bottled water companies offer three choices of coolers, depending on your individual needs and wants.
The first, and lowest price cooler is a simple crock that sits atop a wooden stand made of oak. This crock can hold either three of five gallons of water, the usual sizes that the water comes in. It is ideal for people who desire their water to be room temperature, and is ideal for cooking as well as drinking.
The mid priced cooler is different. On this design, the three or five gallon water bottles sit atop a sleekly designed cooler/dispenser that usually has two separate faucets. One faucet will give you quick access to cold water, while the other faucet dispenses room temperature water. Some coolers have an adjustable thermostat so the cold water will always be a just the temperature you desire. There is a removable water reservoir to catch spills, and you can even find attractive covers that will hide the water bottle, if you so desire.
Usually, these companies have an Internet presence, so it is a simple matter to go online and get set up for home delivery. You can see photos of the coolers before you order, as well as the size of the water bottles. The Internet makes it very easy for you to make sure you are getting exactly what you wanted. You are also able to set up a time for delivery and installation, and arrange how you will pay on a month to month basis. Usually, you must pay a refundable bottle deposit on your initial order, but the entire package, cooler, water, and all, can be paid for online.
Depending on where you live, there are a host of companies that can delivered many different brands of bottled water, perhaps even the brand you have been purchasing. With some of these brands, you get a choice of purified water, artesian water, spring water, or distilled water. Any of these is a fine choice, and much better all around than tap water.
The water that will be delivered to your home has usually gone through a treatment called reverse osmosis, which separates the water molecules from the impurities in the water. Nothing is left behind in the water but hydrogen and oxygen in spring or municipal water, the two types that receive this treatment. The water then goes through filtration, sanitation, ozonation, and then bottled. The distilled water, which by the way is just about the purest water you can buy, goes through a process called vapor compression while undergoing distillation.
This means that the water is micron filtered, and then carbon filtered, softened, boiled once again until it vaporizes, then re-condensed one more time. The end result? Water that is so fresh and clean, so pure that it is approved and recommended for medical, dental, and clinical use. Doesn’t your family deserve the cleanest water, too? There is talked that bottled distilled water is best for our bodies because it contains no minerals. Scientists are of the opinion that the minerals in water build up in the human body and can cause arthritis and other illnesses.
More and more, people are becoming aware of the dangers of drinking tap water, and a looking for alternate methods to supply themselves and their families with as much clean, pure water as they need. Even your pets should not be given tap water, for they are just as susceptible to the toxins and chemicals in it as we are. The success that these commercial bottled water delivery service speaks for itself.
It’s a good idea to stick with brands of water that are well-known and used in your area. These brands will not hesitate to show consumers the testing and treatment information on their water as proof that it is clean and of high quality. That is more than you can say for the municipal water providers in America, as some refuse to show these statistics to anyone. That is why bottled water will be enjoyed for some time to come.
