What is filtered water?
Filtered water is water that has gone through filters to reduce the amount of iron, hydrogen sulfide, aesthetic chlorine taste and odor as well as microorganisms, such as cryptosporidium and giardia.
Filtering water involves separating mineral particles, like particulates, iron, hydrogen sulfide or organic matter, from the water molecule (H2O). By passing water through a "filter bed," or "media bed," these granular particles are trapped - allowing the clean water to pass through.
What is the difference between the various kinds of bottled waters?
All "bottled water" is regulated by strict guidelines created by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). According to the FDA, water labeled as "bottled water" cannot contain sweeteners or chemical additives (other than flavors, extracts or essences) and must be calorie-free and sugar-free.
Other types of water are defined by the FDA as follows:
Artesian Water: Bottled water from a well that taps a confined aquifer (a water-bearing underground layer of rock or sand).
Mineral Water: Contains no less than 250 parts per million of total dissolved solids (minerals). No minerals can be added to this product.
Sparkling Water: Water that after treatment and possible replacement with carbon dioxide contains the same amount of carbon dioxide that it had at emergence from the source. (An important note: soda water, seltzer water and tonic water are not considered bottled waters. They are regulated separately and may contain sugar and calories. These types of waters are considered soft drinks.
Spring Water: Bottled water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth.
How much water should I drink each day?
Water is critical in regulating all body organs and temperature, and dissolving solids and moving nutrients throughout the body. Because water is naturally low in sodium, has no fat, cholesterol or caffeine and isn't flushed straight through the body like many other beverages, it's the natural solution to help reach your body's daily fluid quota.
How much water should you consume?
Most adults need eight to twelve 8-ounce glasses of water or fluids daily, but needs vary by activity level, health circumstances (including pregnancy) and even by age. For example, a 60-pound child would need a minimum of at least 30 ounces of water a day, or about three to four glasses. But a 180-pound man would need about 90 ounces of water a day or about 11-12 glasses. And people may need more water as they age, since thirst signals may become dull, activity levels decline and prescription drugs may dehydrate their bodies further.
What are the environmentally-friendly benefits of Culligan drinking water?
A Culligan drinking water system and Culligan bottled water offer two environmentally-friendly alternatives to single-serve bottled drinking water that can benefit the environment in a number of ways:
Clean up landfills - your entire family will drink fewer single-serve bottles of water and canned drinks, preventing thousands of those single-serve bottles and cans from ending up in landfills
Lower emissions - by drinking fewer single-serve bottles of water and canned beverages, you help reduce the emissions required to manufacture and deliver those bottles
Save oil - less single-serve bottles of water and beverage cans means less oil needed to produce those bottles
Recycle - Culligan recycles every 5 gallon (18.9 litre) bottle used, saving even more landfill space, emissions and oil
