Bottled water is everywhere; you see it at the gym, in hand at the workplace and strapped to backpacks. Americans' consumption of bottled water has doubled in the last decade. If you stroll down the bottled water aisle at your local grocers you will notice a multitude of choices. Over 700 brands of bottled water are on the market today. This includes imported bottled waters with an average retail price often much higher than domestic brands.
So why do people drink bottled water? The number one answer is simply "taste" according to surveys conducted by the IBWA (International Bottled Water Association). The agent most commonly used to disinfect water at bottling facilities is ozone, a form of oxygen. It's counterpart in public water systems is chlorine. Of the two, ozone does not leave an aftertaste or smell like chlorine. For this reason many consumers simply prefer bottled water.
The second reason people choose bottled water is the perception that it is healthier than the tap water found in their homes. The low levels of lead and chlorine sometimes lurking in tap water are the reason many people choose bottled water to drink even when they are at home.
The standards of quality for bottled water were set in 1974 and are based on U.S Public Health Service standards for drinking water established in 1962. Many bottling companies have adapted even stricter guidelines.
