What Makes Filtered Water in Florida the Better Choice

When it comes to filtered water versus tap water, the choice is simple. Filtered water not only offers fresher, better taste, but it’s free of the chemicals and contaminants that often fill Florida tap water, eliminating health and safety hazards.

According to the Southern Regional Water Program, around 90 percent of Florida residents rely on groundwater for consumption—but local water supplies present a number of contamination problems and potential sources of groundwater contamination are frequent throughout the state. Florida tap water can specifically contain:

  • Agricultural chemicals
  • Petroleum products
  • Nitrates from livestock operations
  • Fertilizers
  • Pesticides from storm water runoff
  • And more

While tap water must still meet certain safety requirements, there have been various cases of contamination that present safety concerns you can easily avoid with filtered water. What’s more, tap water in Florida is typically treated with chemicals for disinfection purposes, while filtered water relies on advanced techniques and technologies like reverse osmosis, resulting in a beverage that’s 100 percent pure. And of course the taste of filtered water is unparalleled, eliminating the aftertaste from chlorine that can be found in water from the tap.

In a recent study, Florida ranked second in the number of people impacted by violations under the Safe Drinking Water Act. Roughly 7.5 million Florida residents were served by water treatment plants that had safe water violations.

To avoid running the risk of drinking unsafe tap water, order filtered water to assure your water is clean. At Water Boy, we deliver purified water, spring water, and distilled water, all of which are safe to drink.
