Consuming the best drinking water is an indispensable part of our daily life, but with so many available options, selecting the correct kind can be overwhelming. As the owners of Clearly Colorado, a locally-owned Colorado Springs and Denver area water delivery service, we are here to guide you through the maze of choices.
Understanding the Basics: Types of Water
Before deciding on the best drinking water, let’s take a closer look at the three main types of bottled drinking water: spring water, purified water, and distilled water. Each type has unique characteristics, and understanding these can help you make an informed choice about your drinking water.
Spring Water: Nature’s Gift
Originating from an underground source, spring water is considered by many to be the best drinking water and purer than purified water. However, the phrase ‘spring water’ can be deceptive. Many might envision a pristine mountain spring, but the reality might be far from that ideal.
Even though spring water is naturally filtered, contaminants like coliform, phthalates, and arsenic can still be present. One study revealed that some spring water, while labeled as such, actually comes from municipal sources. This means you might pay more for what is essentially glorified tap water.
Distilled Water: Purity at its Peak
Distilled water undergoes a rigorous filtration process that removes contaminants and strips away all the naturally occurring minerals. While this ensures extreme purity, it also means that distilled water can absorb minerals from anything it comes in contact with, including your teeth or even trace amounts of plastic from its container.
Due to the absence of beneficial minerals, distilled water may not be the best water for regular consumption. It is, however, excellent for use in small appliances like personal humidifiers, CPAP machines, hot water urns or steam irons, where it prevents mineral buildup.
Purified Water: The Ideal Choice
Purified water could come from any source but goes through a purification process to remove all chemicals and contaminants. The purification methods include distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis, and carbon filtration.
While some purified water has the advantage of being free from harmful chemicals, it might lack beneficial minerals. But don’t worry, Clearly Colorado’s purified and oxygenated drinking water undergoes rigorous testing and exceeds U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards, ensuring our water contains all the essential minerals required for your health.
For this reason, we believe we have the best drinking water on the Front Range.

Becoming a Water Connoisseur
Educating yourself about drinking water is relatively easy. Websites like the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offer a wealth of information at your fingertips. For local information, a quick online search for a certified drinking water supplier like Clearly Colorado can provide you with trusted water options for your family, workplace and community.
The Best Drinking Water Will Keep You Coming Back For More
With the many health benefits of staying hydrated, the key to drinking more water is selecting the best-tasting water for your palate.
If the taste of tap water keeps you from drinking enough water, investing in an at-home water filter, like the ones we offer at Clearly Colorado, is your ideal solution. When water tastes fresh, pure, and refreshing, you are more likely to drink it, reaping all the health benefits of drinking water.
Here are some quick tips on how to increase your water intake once you have found your ideal taste:
- Carry a reusable water bottle with you.
- Take small sips of water every 15-30 minutes.
- Enhance the taste of your water with fruit, herbs, or vegetables.
- Set reminders on your phone to drink water.
- Replace sugary drinks like soda with water.
