What's In Your Bottle of Water?

Sunday, November 15, 2015 - by Water2Drink

PepsiCo, the big business owner of Aquafina bottled water, wanted you to think their water was pure and provided by some mountaintop spring, if the artwork on the label was any indication. Under pressure from activists raising the issue of misleading marketing, PepsiCo will be changing its tune (and its label). “The label on #Aquafina water bottles will soon be changed to spell out that the drink comes from the same source as tap water,” says an online news story posted by in October, 2015. has raised this issue before. We want our customers to know that even the best marketing does not always represent the truth. While companies such as PepsiCo, Coca-Cola (owner of #Dasani bottled water) and Nestle (Pure Life water) want you to believe in the purity of their product, the reality is these huge corporations use local, public water sources for their products. While it may be true that they do purify the #water by processes such as #distillation and reverse osmosis, each of these methods may produce an end result with less than desirable characteristics. For example, a reverse-osmosis system removes beneficial dissolved minerals contained in the water source, such as calcium, magnesium and iron, which are necessary for the health of the human body. Distillation also removes all minerals from water, and the health effects of demineralized water can increase diuresis (excessive urine production) and eliminate electrolytes. The dissolved minerals can help protect against nutritional deficiency, and may cause serious health issues when these important minerals are removed.

The bottom line is, the only true way of knowing how “pure” and clean your water is, is to use a high-quality point-of-use drinking water filtration system. #Water2Drink exclusively sells the Multipure family of Drinking Water Systems.
