How much could some water cost? Ready to get shocked by the prices people pay for a glass of clean water? Read on.
How do you tell which water is better and how do you price it? That might be a very relevant question for Nigeria, as it experiences shortage of clean drinking water. For some people even a glassful of pure and cold water is a luxury, while others look to get the most expensive water in the world.
What are some of the characteristics of the best and healthiest water?
- Its taste
Spring water has the best taste. It is cold and fresh, but has no strong flavor to it. In some parts of the world people are forced to drink smelly and odorous water.
- TDS (total dissolved solids)
Pure water does not mean it is void of all kinds of elements or filling agents. Healthy water has to contain a range of minerals and micro elements.
Distilled water can be very pure, but totally unwholesome. Regular consumption of such “void” water can lead to development of various diseases.
On the other hand, prper TDS levels in water make it healthy and natural. Good water goes through layers of soil and gets enriched with those things.
- pH balance
Our bodies maintain certain pH levels. If water gets contaminated by chemicals, it turns acidic and negatively impacts one’s healthy. It can lead to ruining your teeth and stomach.
- Unpolluted water
Today’s extensive use of chemicals in agriculture and industry leads to water pollution. As our bodies contain over 80% of water. This means water can become one of the deadliest poisons if it gets polluted.
