Environment PollutionAlthough lead contamination of a municipal water supply is a fairly rare occurrence, the Flint, MI water crisis has underscored national concern over tap water quality and safety. Many people might believe bottled water is a cleaner, safer alternative but is it really a sustainable, long term solution?

Though bottled water is being given to Flint residents in the midst of the crisis, the healthier, more eco-friendly solution is to use water filters and water treatments. In fact, 300 volunteer union plumbers from across the country recently installed water filters and new plumbing fixtures for Flint residents at no cost in order to supply them with clean, safe, and healthy water. That’s right; the water quality right from the tap can be better than bottled!

Here at Roto-Rooter Lake Charles, we understand that water quality can be a concern for our customers. Our years of plumbing experience in addition to the range of plumbing services we provide can address your concerns over tap water quality.

Here are a few reasons why you should say bye-bye to bottled water.

It might not be good for you

The plastics used to make bottles of water aren’t just bad for the environment but they can also be bad for you! Though the majority of brands of bottled water use BPA-free plastic, endocrine-disrupting chemicals and toxins from the plastic can still seep into the water, especially after being exposed to heat or sitting around for a while. Furthermore, samples of bottled water may even contain phthalates.

It takes a toll on the environment

Manufacturing the 30 billion bottles of water sold annually in the U.S. requires 17 million barrels of oil. That’s enough to power 1.3 million cars for an entire year! Not to mention the majority of plastic water bottles end up in landfills, not recycling bins where they belong. Choosing tap over bottle water eliminates this waste.

Better water quality?

Don’t be fooled by the hype! Certain brands of bottled water are simply purified tap water bottled in attractive packaging. Many people assume bottled water is safer, but did you know that government regulations for tap water are much stricter than those for bottled water? Water filters allow you to have clean, great tasting water right from your plumbing fixtures. Tap water quality really can be better than bottled water!

It’s overpriced

With the average American spending over $100 on bottled water each year, bottled water can be really draining. In fact, the price of certain brands of bottled water can be as high as 2,900 times that of regular tap water!
