Purification Methods that Make Bottled Water Safe to Drink

Oct 16, 2018

Bottled WaterIt’s no secret that bottled water is popular among consumers today. In fact, bottled water has overtaken soda as being the top-selling beverage in the United States. Why do people choose to drink bottled water over water from other sources? The main reasons tend to be its perceived quality, taste, and convenience. Regarding the motivation to drink bottled water due to its purity, a lot of work goes into ensuring bottled water is safe to drink. Since bottled water is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), it must meet stringent quality standards. Below are some of the key techniques that are commonly used in the bottled water purification process:

  • Filtration – Water is forced through filters or membranes that only certain particles can pass through, eliminating germs and other unwanted substances.
  • Distillation – Water is vaporized, leaving minerals behind so that the water will contain less of them when it recondenses.
  • Reverse osmosis – Water goes through a semipermeable membrane that filters out minerals and other contaminants.
  • Ozonation – Water is infused with ozone gas, which works as an antimicrobial agent and kills microorganisms in the water.
  • UV-light treatment – This chemical-free treatment method applies UV light that acts as a disinfecting agent, killing bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms.
