Survey Indicates Americans Concerned About Tap Water QualityJen Clopino
A new survey reveals that 55% of Americans are concerned about the quality of their tap water. The online survey, conducted by Cint on behalf of Bluewater, also revealed that approximately one in six Americans avoid drinking water direct from their kitchen taps.
The online poll surveyed more than 1,000 U.S. adults ages 18 to 70 about their general sentiments around drinking residential water and their use of different residential water filtration and purification devices in the market. Some 40.2% of respondents said they used a water pitcher filtration device to clean their tap water, while 6.4% said they utilized an under-sink, reverse osmosis water purification system.
Some 20.8% said they relied on buying bottled water in bulk to use at home to drink. Eighty-two percent believe it is vital to their health and wellbeing to have a dedicated water purifier at home to remove dangerous substances from their tap water.
