Drinking Water Solutions at Home to Crush Bottled Water
Our morning routine can be a tough habit to break. For many of us, it involves waking up early, getting ready for work, grabbing a bite to eat, and heading out the door. On your way to work, you might stop at a gas station for water or coffee because the water you have at home just doesn’t look or taste right. While at work, maybe you’ll head over to the vending machine to grab a bottle of water to drink with lunch followed by another in the middle of the afternoon. Over time, those empty plastic bottles add up without you even realizing it.
There are drinking water solutions that can be installed right in your home that can give you great-tasting, purified water right from your tap. Drinking water filtration systems are a great alternative if you want to cut back on your bottled water purchases. It may be a better option overall in more ways than one.
Your Water Tastes Great!
Drinking water systems, such as an Evolve® UltroWater® Reverse Osmosis (RO) Drinking Water System, do an excellent job of removing unwanted contaminants in your water, leaving it taste crisp and fresh. To the people that think bottled water tastes better than tap water, blind taste tests confirm that most people can’t even tell the difference between the two, even if the water coming from the tap is unfiltered.
Also, even the best-packaged water brands tend to take on a stale plastic taste from the bottles they’re stored in. The time it takes from when the water is bottled at the plant to when you pick it up from the gas station can be months if not years. During this time, the water is taking on many properties of the plastic. This is the reason you’ll find expiration dates on bottled water . The water doesn’t “go bad,”; it just spends too much time leaching the chemicals from the plastic.
Convenience Can’t be Beat
Running to the grocery store to pick up bottled water can be a hassle and costly. Plus, once you run out, it returns to the store before you can even drink another water. With a drinking water filtration system, you do not need to worry about running out. There is “essentially” an endless supply of water right from the convenience of your faucet. When your glass runs out, fill up another!
The only replenishment a reverse osmosis, or other cartridge-based drinking water solution, needs is to replace the cartridge once it has reached its limit for the amount of contaminants it can hold. For most people, this should be done once or twice per year. So, while there is still some need to buy new parts to maintain your system, it’s a lot easier than carrying home a case of water every time you get groceries. Our authorized Evolve dealers can even help by putting you on a schedule to have their team replace the filter cartridges, so you don’t have to worry about remembering when to do so.
Save Money and the Planet
For some, the most influential reason you should consider installing a water filtration system is how much money you can save. The bottled water you purchase over time can get costly. Marketing and advertising agencies do a great job of luring us with ad campaigns promoting “glacier water” and “fresh spring water.” There is no need to shell out a few bucks every time for purified water when you can get the same quality water in your home for pennies per gallon! You may also be reluctant to make coffee or tea at home without purified water readily available. A filtration system will save you from stopping at Starbucks on your way to work every morning.
By not purchasing plastic water bottles, you also eliminate the waste left behind. Americans alone buy roughly 29 billion water bottles a year. Only one is recycled properly for every six bottles of water people buy. Water bottles are also usually made from petroleum products (oil), meaning those empty bottles left out in nature are an environmental hazard.
Know What You Are Getting
We do not always know what companies put into their bottled water (or take it out). While bottled water is not necessarily unsafe, there is still little we can know about the quality of the water inside, despite the claims made on the outside of the bottle. A water bottle label that reads “purified water” can be opened for interpretation. When a certified Evolve dealer installs a drinking water system, you will have your water thoroughly tested, and a drinking water solution will be installed to fit your water’s exact needs.
The Evolve UltroWater® reverse osmosis system is an NSF/ANSI Standard 58 certified system. It has been tested and proven to remove impurities in the water, such as arsenic, lead, copper, and more. Having this certification in a system can help you feel confident that the water you are drinking from your tap is free from contaminants you can see, smell, or taste.
