Types of Bottled Water

All bottled water is not created equal. Just because water has been put in a bottle does not guarantee its purity. It is regulated no more strictly than municipal water - and about 25% of bottled water comes straight out of the tap! The other 75% may be one of the water types defined below.

The container itself must also be considered. Reusable five-gallon plastic jugs may leach dangerous chemicals. Glass bottles are the safest.
