Where does my facility’s drinking water come from?
Your drinking water comes from either ground water sources via wells or surface water sources such as reservoirs, rivers, lakes or streams. The majority of the U.S. population is served by a water system that uses surface water. That’s because large metropolitan areas tend to rely on surface water, while small and rural areas usually rely on ground water. To find the source of your drinking water, check your annual water quality report or call your water supplier.
My tap water has a peculiar taste, smell or appearance. What’s wrong with it?
Although your water may meet EPA standards, you may still find its taste, smell, or appearance objectionable. The EPA’s standards are primarily focused on the water’s effects on health. They set secondary standards based on water’s aesthetic characteristics that public water system providers may choose or not choose to adopt. Common complaints about water aesthetics include temporary cloudiness typically caused by air bubbles and a mineral or chlorine taste.
What about bottled water?
Bottled water is not necessarily safer than your tap water. Two-thirds of all bottled water on the market today is purified tap water. The EPA sets standards for tap water provided by public water systems, but the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) sets bottled water standards based on the EPA’s tap water standards. Both bottled water and tap water are safe to drink if they meet these standards. You may find that some bottled waters are treated more extensively than tap water, while others may be treated less or not at all. This is something you’ll want to know since you’ll be paying much more for bottled water than tap water on a per gallon basis.

Carefully read the label on any bottled water to ascertain its method of treatment. For example, the special waters offered by many premium bottlers are only municipally supplied water that has been filtered using reverse osmosis.
What is "reverse osmosis" water?
Reverse osmosis water is water that has been filtered free of chemicals, chlorine and chlorine by-products. The membrane also removes fluoride, metals, dissolved solids, salts and most organisms. Reverse osmosis water contains high levels of oxygen and has a clear, fresh taste. Apart from costly and process-intensive distilled water, it is the purest available source of water and is clearly the body’s choice for optimal health.
Since there’s no bottle, how does the water get into my system?
Our BestFit Service Technicians will run a food-grade water line from under a sink, in most cases, directly to your pure water system. The waterway is hidden inside the wall and usually runs overhead above the ceiling tiles. Much like installing a phone line. It’s easy and the installation is FREE.
What kind of filters does BestFit use?
We use the same type of filters the big bottled water companies use, just on a smaller scale. Check out The reverse osmosis process section in our submenu to learn more about our 9-stage, 5-filter purification process.
When do we need to change the filters?
You don’t — we do! BestFit takes care of changing your filters and sanitizing the water system. When was the last time you saw your bottled water company clean your cooler? The filters we use purify up to 3,000 gallons of water — a typical office will use about 1,000 gallons a year. Regardless of your facility’s water consumption, we’ll change your cooler’s filters yearly on the anniversary date of your installation.
I’m worried about a specific drinking water contaminant, i.e., lead, cryptosporidium, radon, etc. What should I know?
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. BestFit’s 9-stage, 5-filter purification process eliminates the contaminants you fear and best of all, those you don’t even know to fear.
How many glasses of purified water should I drink per day?
You should drink the equivalent of half of your body weight in ounces. For example, a 200 lb. person needs 100 ounces of pure water per day to avoid dehydration and reap the benefits of improved health, skin tone and vitality. A daily consumption of six to eight glasses of pure water is recommended for most people.
