What’s in Your Bottled Water?

It seems that not all brands of bottled water are created equal…even when compared to tap water.

With city water being regulated by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), and the bottled water industry being regulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), there is a pretty strong case to suggest that certain municipal water supplies are cleaner than commercially sold bottled water.

In fact, a recent study from the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) stated that roughly 30 percent of all bottled water has chemical and bacterial contamination that tests above the levels considered safe by state and industry regulations. They also revealed that about 25 percent of all bottled water actually comes from a municipal water supply, which basically means you’re paying a premium for tap water!

This is yet another compelling argument to go with an at-home filtering system. This way, you know what the hell you’re drinking…
