Alternatively, you may want to fast forward to the bottled water cost calculator.
For many years we were consuming bottled water and then we have came to learn that we literally wasted thousands of Euro.
We have calculated that we were wasting around 500 euro a year for no benefit whatsoever.
We wrongly assumed that our tap water was not safe enough to drink and all our drinking water, except for boiled water used for making tea, came from bottled water.
One day we decided to challenge our decision and bought a drinking water test kit only to discover that our tap water is perfectly safe for drinking.
You may be in the same situation so you may consider to invest a little money against purchasing a drinking water test kit because that decision may also save you hundreds of euro.
In some countries sparkling water is very popular and, as with the stilled bottled water, the prize of one bottle of sparkling water may not seem that high but the economic impact is quite noticeable in the long run
In the following table we are going to compare the costs of buying sparkling bottled water against a making the sparkling water ourselves by using soda maker machine. As side note, we have chosen Soda Stream for this example because this is the branch we are using at home.
The calculator below can be used to estimate the bottled water cost over a year.
You just need to adjust the values in the PARAMETERS section to your requirements and the calculator will automatically display the RESULTS section.
A few other examples from our ‘Water usage calculators‘ page:
Water conservation can be defined as the decision and the act of using less water
Water conservation both benefit you and the environment
The act of saving and conserving water does benefit you because you will be paying less on your water bills.
And it also does benefit the environment because conserving water prevents any unnecessary waste of natural resources.
Now, at individual level it may not look worth to try to save a few litres or gallons here or there.
Still, every little counts and if hundreds or thousands of us do save a little every time, it will make an important contribution towards conserving our natural resources.
For example, if 9000 households would manage to save as little as 5 liters of water per day:
> Collectively, we would be saving over 16,000,000 liters of water per year!
> Collectively, assuming a cost of 2 euro per cubic meter of water, we would be saving nearly 33,000 euro per year!
