In Springfield, Mo., many people either purchase bottled water delivery or drink tap water. But did you know there are chemicals and other things floating around in your tap water and those 5-gallon jugs may contain either BPA or PET which are harmful chemicals?
If that isn’t enough, the gallon-sized bottled water you purchase at Walmart, Price Cutter or any other grocery store in Springfield, Mo. may simply be expensive tap water with added chemicals! Imagine that: paying more money for tap water when you can simply go home and drink it for pennies on the dollar with fewer chemicals.
This is where Aquasani comes in: we have bottleless water coolers and dispensers which hook right up to your tap water and are significantly cheaper than purchasing a bottled water service. Here are some of the cons of bottled water delivery services:
The Downsides of Bottled Water Delivery Services in Springfield, Mo.
- You are busy.
With many water bottle delivery services, you must be present in order to receive your water. And with Springfield, Mo.’s fast-paced lifestyle, you may never know what creeps up last minute with your children, family or work. Again, if you aren’t present, you may miss receiving your weekly drinking water supply.
- Water jugs are heavy.
The 5-gallon water jugs can be anywhere from 40 to 50 pounds depending on the temperature of the water. Aside from being busy and needing to stop and lift the heavy jugs onto the dispenser, lifting these jugs can put a lot of strain on your body. Some people notice wrist, back and neck pain. While there are safe ways to lift these jugs, there is always a chance of hurting yourself.
- It is more expensive.
5-gallon water jugs can be anywhere from $6 to $7 per jug and many families go through around 7 or 8 in a month. Filtering your water can save you hundreds in the long run.
- The dispensers must be cleaned regularly.
Contrary to popular belief, the water dispensers used for those big 5-gallon jugs of water must be cleaned regularly. How often has someone touched the rim of their glass or cup to the dispenser mouth right after drinking out of it? While it may seem trivial, if those dispensers aren’t clean, they could spread bacteria and germs to other people.
- If a Water Jug doesn’t have BPA, it may have PET.
BPA or Bisphenol-A, while deemed safe by the FDA, is rumored to have many cancer-causing agents in it. But even if a label claims a bottle or jug is BPA-free, many bottles are made with PET instead which have antimony in them. Antimony is listed as a toxic substance by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
