What Are the Different Types of Drinking Water | Lipsey Water

Staying hydrated and drinking high quality water is essential to living a healthy life. But with so many different “types” of water, it’s hard to know what’s best or what the difference is between them. You can ensure you’re getting the freshest water when you sign up for home water delivery in Atlanta, but keep reading to learn more about your options.

Tap Water in Atlanta, Georgia

A majority of the Atlanta-area water comes from the Chattahoochee River Basin. In fact, North Georgia uses surface water sources for 99% of its water supply. Unfortunately, the area’s rainfall is unpredictable, has no natural lakes, and minimal water supply where the rivers begin. As a result, residents’ water comes from man-made reservoirs that are used to preserve water in high precipitation periods and utilized during droughts.

Although tap water is considered safe by the EPA, drinking it can cause health problems. During its filtration, chlorine is added to the water. Although it’s technically safe for human consumption, chlorine can lead to a variety of health complications and could lead to cancer. The risk of lead is also a prevalent concern since tap water passes through pipes made of this dangerous material.

Distilled Water Isn’t as Safe as It Seems

This type of water is created through a boiling process. When the water reaches the temperature of 212 degrees Fahrenheit, the water’s contaminants are eliminated, including inorganic minerals and metals.

The distilled water you see on shelves is actually the steam that is captured and stored from this process. Volatile compounds, which have a much lower boiling point than water, are of the first particles to burn off. Because of this, additional purification methods need to be implemented if you want 100% pure, clean water.

Filtered Water is Rejuvenated Tap Water

You’re most likely to see filtered water in grocery stores. It comes from local, municipal tap water, and is sent through carbon filters to eliminate the chlorine. Although this chemical is what makes water taste better, it’s also dangerous to your health. From there, it’s ozonated and bottled. Because it comes from a local source and is minimally filtered, it’s similar in nature to spring water.
