Drinking Water: Bottled Water or Filtered Water?

July 15, 2020

When most people want a drink of water, they reach for a bottle rather than taking advantage of the faucet. We often choose bottled water for convenience and quality, but there’s a better way to easily get pure, quality water.

Here is why you should skip the middleman and switch to filtered water.

Filtered = Healthy

One of the main reasons people choose bottled water is because they are worried about the quality of their tap water. Water from a tap can contain pesticides and other contaminants that get washed into water sources when it rains – and chlorine that municipalities add to kill any bacteria in city water.

Filtering systems, such as the Kinetico K5 drinking water system, can get rid of all of these impurities without removing the natural minerals that are good for us. Because of this, filtered water is a healthy choice for you and your family.

It’s More Efficient

Have you ever reached into the fridge for a bottle of water and found that there’s none left? With filtered water, you can use as much water as you want, whenever you want, and it will never run out.

If you want to take your filtered water on the go, reusable water bottles are a smart choice. They have the convenience of a plastic bottle without a negative impact on the environment.

Filtered Water Saves Money

Perhaps the biggest reason to make the switch from bottled to filtered water is to save money. While there’s an initial investment in a filtration system, it pays off relatively quickly.

The average person spends about $100 each year on bottled water, and households with multiple people spend much more than that. The only cost of a filtering system after installation is to change out the water filter every few months.

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
