How To Save Money with Home Drinking Water Systems

Posted on October 31, 2014

Drinking water systemsBottled water is a convenient way to get in your eight glasses a day, but it could be costing you more than you think. Here are two ways that installing drinking water systems in your home can help save you money while still providing you with safe and fresh tasting water available at your fingertips.

Billions in Bottles

In 2009 alone, Americans purchased close to 8.5 billion gallons of bottled water, which adds up to over $10 billion spent on this bottled resource. Each 16 ounce bottle of water is priced at around one to two dollars a piece, while tap water costs an average of only one cent per gallon. Besides leaving a dent in your wallet, all of these plastic bottles are an expense to the environment as well. About 75 percent of these bottles end up in landfills, oceans and streams, and use enough energy through transport and disposal to fuel 1.5 million cars for a year. Installing a home water system is a great way to reduce the amount of money and energy spent on plastic bottles, while providing your family and you with a reliable source of clean water.

Cost of Contaminants

Many consumers buy bottled water based on the thought that it is safer and cleaner than tap water. The truth is that only about 30 to 40 percent of bottled water sold across state lines are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The quality, safety, and taste of tap water varies depending on each location. The installation of one of our Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Systems can assure a reduction in unwanted contaminants and impurities no matter the current quality of your water supply. The cost of installing one one of these drinking water systems results in a cost far less than a regular habit of buying bottled water.
