Have you considered having water filtration installed for your house? Probably, since you’re reading this. People are searching for healthier water quality today because of the concern about pollutants entering the municipal water supply. Although water goes through treatment plants to remove harmful chemicals, bacteria, and heavy metals, many of those same impurities can enter the pipes carrying the water to homes and businesses. Aging pipes can also send pollutants into the water supply.
Concern about water quality often drives people to purchase bottled water as a solution. If you’re thinking about the installation of water filtration systems in Glendale, AZ for your home, you already have suspicions that bottled water isn’t the best, cost-effective choice.
And you are right.
Bottled Water Isn’t What People Think It Is
Here’s something we need to explain at the top: bottled water is rarely better quality than municipal water, and sometimes is worse.
Companies selling bottled water want you to believe you’re drinking something that purified and fresher than fresh. “Pure spring water!” But most bottled water is coming straight from the municipal supply and receiving nothing more than basic filtration—if that. Because the water is shipped across state lines, it isn’t subject to basic municipal requirements and can be approved for sale even if it’s lower quality.
Then factor in how much bottled water costs, and you’ll start to see the serious problem. Bottled water costs $11.8 billion total in the US each year, and the average consumption per consumer can add up to $250 per year, and that’s the low estimate.
Bottled water is also terrible for the environment. Plastic manufacturing has a major impact, and even worse is the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills. Only around 20% of water bottles are recycled, and the rest total up to about 2 billion tons of garbage put into the landfills.

These systems can be specially targeted toward the impurities entering your home so you end up removing what actually needs to be removed.
