Alternatives to Water Delivery

Is Water Delivery Necessary?

Having a water delivery service can really end up costing you a lot of money over the course of a year. Water delivery service usually costs at least $30 per month. Over the course of a year, that is $360. If you want to save money each month and you currently have a water cooler in your home, you might want to rethink having water delivery to your home.

Your Options

There are other reasonable options on the market besides water delivery that can provide you with what you desire-tasty, healthy water. Water delivery can add up really quickly, and it can also be inconvenient. The 5-gallon jugs that most companies sell can be cumbersome and awkward to maneuver. Some of the options below eliminate that inconvenience.

Go Out and Get It

Many consumers I know simply buy bottled water at the grocery store instead of getting a water delivery service. If you buy spring water in the supermarket, it is usually best to go with gallon-sized containers. Smaller bottles might be convenient for when you go on trips, but at home the gallon-sized bottles will be cheaper than buying lots of smaller bottles.

Filter It At Home

Instead of water delivery, you can purchase a pitcher that contains a water filter as those that Brita sells. Brita sells a slim pitcher that holds up to five cups. This can be a good choice for someone who lives alone and has limited refrigerator space. Brita also sells a pitcher dispenser that holds up to 18 cups of water. Brita also sells faucet mounts and refrigerator filters that fit into well-known refrigerator brand names such as Whirlpool, Kitchenaid, and Kenmore. If you already have a refrigerator with a water dispenser, then a refrigerator filter might be right for you.

If you are looking for alternatives to a water delivery service, you might want to consider the above options. Water delivery service can be convenient, but you do pay extra for that added convenience.
