Your Drinking Water Options

Your Drinking Water Options

We’re going to play a little game of word association. I say “Drinking Water.” You say, “____.”

What was the first word or phrase that came to mind? Tap water? Bottled water? A mountain spring? Tap water may be the easiest but there are lots of solutions to turn ordinary water into purified, clean drinking water.

On the Go

Keeping up with water intake can be hard when you’re out and about. Grabbing a bottle of water at a convenience store is a fine solution but it can be a pricey habit. Refilling your own bottle is more cost-effective (and environmentally friendly) but you will run out and, depending where you are, it could be awhile before you find a water fountain. Some companies are making an effort to have drinking water more readily available like this fill-up station. Grand Canyon National Park also recently installed fill-stations to cutback on bottle waste.

There are also handheld solutions like purification pumps or tablets but those can be time consuming and are more suited to hikers, campers and other individuals who don’t have a close drinking water source.

At Home

Your tap is the most obvious option. If you live in the city your water is already treated, but it can still be hard or have a funny taste or smell. Some people use filter-pitchers to remove unwanted minerals or odors. While these pitchers can reduce the amount of impurities in your water, they do not completely eliminate them.

That’s where the Culligan Man steps in. Having a reverse-osmosis (RO) system installed in your home will give you bottled quality water right at the tap. It’s wallet friendly and when you have great tasting water in your home, you’ll be tempted to drink more which can only be beneficial. Questions?
