How do I know if my bottled water isn’t simply bottled tap water?

    The fact is tap water is regulated more closely than bottled water and there have been studies that found bottled water is not necessarily safer than tap. Tap water is strictly regulated by the EPA while bottled water is loosely controlled by the FDA. Further more, the idea that bottled water is somehow more pure is due to the marketing of bottled water companies; they sell us the image that water is bottled at the foot of a glacial mountain when this is usually not the case. Also according to government and industry estimates, approximately 40% of bottled water IS tap water! Due to major gaps in FDA regulation, it is very difficult to determine the source of bottled water.
