People Are SUPER Picky When It Comes To Drinking Water

We’ve all heard that it’s recommended that people drink six to eight glasses of water each day to stay hydrated, but it seems for a lot of people, any old water just won’t do.

A new survey finds:

  • 66% of Americans have strong feelings when it comes to their water preferences.
  • Close to 70% of Americans do think tap water is safe to drink.
  • Yet 23% prefer not to drink tap water, and 54% wouldn’t drink tap water anywhere other than their homes.
  • The top concerns about tap water include:
    • Taste (55%)
    • Possible contamination (54%)
    • Fear it’s not clean (50%)
  • 69% of Americans admit they prefer bottled water to tap water.
  • 32% drink bottled water simply because it’s a shopping habit.
  • But the pandemic changed that for some people, with 36% of people saying supply shortages stopped them from buying bottled water.
  • 37% of those people said that it made them realize they didn’t know why they preferred bottled water over tap water.
  • But regardless of what type of water people are drinking, they apparently aren’t drinking enough of it.
  • The average person only drinks about 4.5 cups of water a day, although 60% drink about five.
  • 55% say they find that they drink less if they don’t have bottled water nearby.
