Spring, Filtered, Purified or Distilled?
What’s the difference between spring, filtered, purified, and distilled water?
These days, something as simple as water has many different options. Of course, you have tap water. But what do you do if you’re worried about the health risks of drinking water straight out of the tap?
So many options to choose from!
- Spring water often comes from an underground source and may or may not have been treated or purified.
- Purified water has been put through one of several processes, including distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis and carbon filtration. These processes help to remove chemicals and contaminants.
- Distilled water is a type of purified water that has been boiled into steam and condensed back into liquid. This removes impurities.
- Filtered water: filtering your tap water is the easiest, cheapest and safest way to remove contaminants.
Bottled spring water – is it a good option?
The short answer is no. Buying bottled spring water is expensive, and all those plastic bottles are bad for the environment. Although spring water sounds like it comes from a beautiful pool of water in the middle of the rain forest, the truth is that it is sourced from underground basins or wells. On top of this, spring water may or may not have been treated or purified before it is bottled and sold. Really, the only positive thing about bottled spring water is that it is convenient and easily portable.
Purified water – what is it?
Water that has been purified goes through one of many processes to remove chemicals and contaminants. The problem with purifying water is that while it removes nasty things from water, it also removes the good things like minerals that are beneficial to the human body.
Distilled Water – another type of purified water?
Distilled water is a type of purified water that has also had contaminants as well as beneficial minerals stripped out of it. Therefore, distilled (or purified) water is the best option for human consumption, and you’re better off using it in your steam iron to avoid mineral build-up.
