People want to know; is tap water cleaner than bottled water sold at stores? The US government has this to say. It could be.

The regulations governing the beverage industry were created by the US Food and Drug Administration. Those governing treatment facilities were created by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

When it comes to bacteria like e-coli, the regulations for treatment facilities are more stringent. When it comes to testing samples, the treatment facilities are required to do so, on a regular basis.

The beverage industry is only required to test samples that will be shipped across state lines. Depending on the brand you buy, you could be drinking your own tap-water with no additional treatments.

No additional treatments are required by law. Some companies do take some measures to improve the purity of the local supply. Others don't.

In some cases, the measures they take actually reduce the purity. Samples of one brand that were tested in Europe were found to contain high levels of a cancer-causing disinfection byproduct, even though that carcinogen was not present in the public supply. Since the company used the local supply, their treatment process had to be responsible for the contamination.

In that case, the answer was "yes" to the question of; is tap water cleaner than bottled water sold at stores. In some cases, the answer is "no", because it is ultimately the same thing.

Neither choice is particularly good for your health. Just being stored in those plastic bottles for long periods of time is bad, because the chemicals seep into the liquids. The chemicals are estrogen disruptors; they interfere with the body's natural production of hormones.

There is an alternative. We don't really need to be concerned about the question; is tap water cleaner than bottled water sold at stores. The alternative is a home water purifier.

Home water purifiers are capable of doing more than the treatment facilities or the beverage industry. The main reason why has to do with production. At home, we only need to produce enough to meet our own needs. Treatment facilities and the beverage industry are trying to meet the needs of millions of people.

When you are shopping for a home water purifier, look for a multi-stage selective filtration device. They are affordable. They remove the most contaminants and you will enjoy the way your tap water tastes.

That should answer the question; is tap water cleaner than bottled water sold at stores. Now, you just need to learn a few things about home water purifiers. シーガルフォー
