It’s an open secret that tap water is not suitable for drinking directly here due to the pollutants inside. To get drinking water for daily needs, families here mainly boil tap water, order bottled water and filter the tap water. Among these options, boiling does not remove the unwanted metals. That’s the reason that even more and more locals don’t drink the boiled water any more.
Bottled Water Brands 桶装水品牌
Bottled water is an advanced and newer choice comparing to (boiled) tap water in history. With 2 choices including natural mineral water and the treated tap water in different sized bottles ( small bottles usually carry less than 5 liters and big bottles carry 19 liters), bottled water brings so much convenience and peaceful mind for consumers initially, despite brands. The following is a list of the commonly used bottled water brands in big jugs.
Rising Concerns Of Bottled Water 对桶装水的忧虑日益增加
During our service, there are indeed some families who are using the bottled water and prefer still bottled water for the future, due to the fact that it’s hard to trust other choices available in the market. However, we do notice more and more families concern the bottles and water dispensers, worrying about the sources of them, inevitable 2ndary pollution and inconvenience of using the bottled water for cooking and cleaning and so on.
Fake And Counterfeited Bottled Water 假冒伪劣瓶装水
In 2007, over 50% of the bottled water in the Beijing market is reported to be fake. The fake and counterfeited bottled water are coming from a city somewhere. Most of them are just simply filtered water or even just tap water. Beijing has witnessed more and more fake brands mushrooming in recent years, even the SOHO at CBD can’t avoid such suffering: 100,000 barrels of fake water are sold every month. Said Thomas.
Simple Tips For Using Bottled Water 使用桶装水的一些提示
For health’s sake, people using the bottled water should care more about the sources and the disinfection of the water dispensers. To order the bottled water from the headquarters for these companies will be indeed better than getting the bottles from a nearby small water station. That will help secure the source. Besides, since most of the bottled water in big jugs is used on dispensers and air carrying bacteria and PM2.5 will go inside the bottle duringthe operation, it will be necessary for users to do the disinfection regularly. Otherwise, excessive bacteria will be found.
Filtered Drinking Water 净化直饮水
Most of the bottled water is just filtered tap water from a large scale filtration system. Like how these bottled water is produced, families could use a small water filter and filter the water at home for drinking water too. That’s a new trend. Comparing to the bottled water, using a proper filter will not just get the whole family cleaner water with more peaceful mind, and will also bring a lot more convenience for cooking and flushing foods.
