A survey of websites and labels of more than 170 bottled waters sold in the U.S. found only three – and only one of the top 10 domestic brands – that give customers information about the water’s source, the method of purification and any chemical pollutants that remained after the water was treated, according to a new report by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Nestlé’s Pure Life Purified Water discloses its water source and treatment method on the label and offers an 800-number that consumers can call to request a water quality test report. But the nine other top domestic brands – Coca-Cola’s Dasani, Pepsi’s Aquafina, Crystal Geyser, and – strangely – six other of Nestlé’s seven brands – don’t answer at least one of the three key questions:

• Where does the water come from?
• Is it purified? How?
• Have tests found any contaminants?  Water Filtration by LifeSource 

How Much To Get, Plus What About Countertop Filtration Systems? 

As I wrote on my website, health experts recommend drinking up to eight glasses of water each day, but relying on disposable water bottles can turn a healthy habit into a wasteful one. For purified water that’s kind to your wallet as well as the environment, look no further than your kitchen sink. These three options will give you clean water easily, no matter your lifestyle.

Countertop Pitchers 

If you’re looking for convenience and economy, a countertop pitcher is a smart choice. The filters, which are available at most major stores, have a long shelf life and can be replaced in minutes. They’re great for small families -- you can simply fill up the pitcher in the morning and enjoy fresh drinking water all day.
