Not all bottled water brands are equal, and if you drink bottled water on daily basis, it is always best practice to research and compare several viable brands. Here are a few things to consider when searching for a high-quality safe bottled water:
Bottled waters that have been treated with different types of water treatment methods, will taste differently. If the bottled water tastes different than tap water, the different taste does not always indicate bad quality. Purified water is probably the most preferred water taste, and mineral water can have a unique taste depending on the content. The carbon dioxide contained in sparkling water also brings a distinct taste.
PET (polyethylene terephthalate) is a high-grade container plastic which is used for bottled water, because it does not contaminate the water. The used-to-be-controversial BPA in food contact applications has now been approved for safety by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Based on FDA's ongoing testing and reviews, the available information does not indicate any danger or health risk potentially triggered by the use of BPA. In the fall of 2014, FDA once again confirmed that there wasn't any new information credible enough to start a re-evaluation or revision of BPA's safety.
