What you should Look For in a Bottled Water Delivery Service

So you decided to stop drinking tap water. Many people have made the same decision and have switched to drinking bottled water. Does the idea of making endless trips to the grocery store to buy tons of bottled water excite you? You are not alone. More and more homes and businesses are opting for bottled water delivery. Whether your reason for making that decision is based on taste or health-related concerns, take a moment to decide on a bottled water delivery company. You should take three very important factors into consideration before you make the commitment to having water delivered to you.

They are: the water itself; the container it comes in; and, the service-level provided by the delivery company.

The Water
Mountain spring water is a wonderful source of fresh water. Look for water coming from well-known mountain regions with good forests and a reputation for the finest quality water. The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina qualify as one example of a good source of mountain spring water.

No matter how good the source is, make sure the water is tested annually for purity. Your water delivery company should be able to provide an analysis upon you request. Also, the water should go through a rigorous purification process including Filtering for sediment and ozenating for purity. The FDA requires either Ozone or Chlorine, but you’re better off with water treated non-chemically, i.e. by Ozone.

Not the least important issue is taste. You want your water to taste great! Request a free trial from the bottled water delivery service before committing to them. If they believe in their water, they will offer you a risk-free trial for at least two weeks.

The (Glass) Bottle
Use a company that uses glass water bottles. Why glass? Because 1) glass is the only packaging material able to withstand the high heat required for sterilization; 2) glass is an inert material that will not leach plastic chemicals or toxins into water; 3) glass lasts MUCH longer than plastic bottles and is totally recyclable when its life is over; and 4) water simply tastes better bottled in glass than it does in plastic. Remember how much better Coke used to taste in the old fashioned glass bottles? Same principle… plastic and aluminum impact the taste and purity of beverages in a negative way. Glass does not.

Believe it or not, it is not enough to choose glass bottled water over plastic. The quality of the glass matters also. To ensure the highest possible water purity, the bottles should be made from pharmaceutical grade glass crafted by knowledgeable and experienced glass artisans.

The Service
A glass bottled water delivery already demonstrates its commitment in the quality of the water they provide. However, a rock-solid water delivery company also focuses on the level of service they provide to their customers. Think back to the images of the old fashioned milkman in his white uniform and hat. It instilled a level of confidence that he and his company meant business. He was courteous, professional, and well-educated on his product. There aren’t many, but this level of service does still exist!

Look for a company that deliver on schedule and on time. They should not burden you with minimum purchase requirements, long-term contracts, or hidden surcharges. If you run out of water off schedule, they should deliver more water within 24 hours at no charge.

Consider those factors. Choose the water bottle delivery service that does all of those things and you will not be disappointed.
