Bottled Water and Distilled Water

Bottled and Distilled Water

Q: I want the safest possible water. Is bottled water safer than tap water?

A: Bottled water is not necessarily any safer than your local drinking water. EPA regulates public water systems to ensure that they are in compliance with national standards; bottled water is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration as a food product. Both agencies use equivalent health standards to ensure safety. For information concerning bottled water, you can contact the FDA at 1-888-463-6332 In addition, the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) may also be helpful. They can be reached at 1-800-928-3711.

If you want the safest water possible, then boil your water for one minute, whether it is tap water or bottled water. NSF International, an independent non-profit organization, certifies some brands of bottled drinking water.
