A Drinking Water System from RainSoft is a Better Option Than Bottled Water for Your Home in Columbus, OH
A RainSoft drinking water system for your home in Columbus, Ohio, can be a more convenient and economical solution than buying bottled water. If you’re a bottled water devotee, you probably believe – and rightly so – that water is a much healthier beverage option than soda or other sugary drinks. You might also enjoy its refreshing taste. Or, perhaps you are concerned about the quality of your tap water, so you choose bottled water because you believe it is a safer alternative. If this is the case, you might want to reconsider.
Bottling companies regularly tout their water as being cleaner and safer to drink than tap water. However, if your tap water is provided by a well-run public utility in Columbus, OH, it is required to meet federal drinking water standards that might actually make it safer to drink than its bottled counterpart – even if you don’t have a drinking water system. Here’s why: Bottled water companies, which are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are held to less stringent quality standards than water utilities, which are regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
So, if your tap water is safe for consumption, why then would you need a RainSoft drinking water system? When you take safety concerns out of the mix, some consumers still prefer bottled water to tap water for aesthetic reasons. That’s because:
- Tap water can contain trace amounts of chlorine and other disinfectants added by the municipality to protect against bacteria and microbes. However, by the time the water reaches your home, these additives are no longer necessary, and their lingering presence can affect the taste, smell, and appearance of the water. Most bottled water does not contain such additives.
- Some municipalities add fluoride to the water supply. While topical fluoride has been shown to help prevent tooth decay in children, the effects of water fluoridation are less clear and somewhat controversial. Some people prefer not to drink fluoridated water, and many bottled water brands are free of fluoride.
A drinking water system from RainSoft can effectively address these issues and more to ensure that crisp, clear, refreshing water continually flows from your tap. You and your family can enjoy healthy, delicious water in your home at any time, without having to constantly purchase and worry about the composition of bottled water. When you consider that a gallon of tap water costs about a penny, as compared to more than a dollar for a gallon of bottled water, we think you’ll agree that purchasing a RainSoft drinking water system just makes good “cents.”
