Cottage Water Filtration Systems vs Bottled Water

Cottage Water Filtration Systems

It’s almost cottage season! Time to pack up the car and get out of town for some much needed R&R. Spend lazy days swinging in the hammock with your favourite book and cool evenings roasting marshmallows over the fire.

It all sounds pretty relaxing, doesn’t it?  

Let’s not forget all the work that needs to be done to get “cottage ready”. One of the biggest inconveniences many people face is providing clean, fresh water for their family and friends at the cottage.

No matter how much relaxation you have planned, you are still going to need that water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and bathing. There are a few different ways people deal with the cottage water situation.

We’re going focus on are the benefits of having a cottage water filtration system installed vs bringing along bottled water.  Let’s take a look at all the factors:

Benefits of a Cottage Water Filtration System vs Bottled Water

Cottage Water Filtration Systems





Water jugs are available almost everywhere, from the gas station to the grocery store to The Water Store.

What happens if you decided to extend your stay? That means another trip out to refill the water jugs.

One less thing you need to think about when you’re trying to get out the door to enjoy the cottage.

Your tap water is always waiting for you when you arrive and you’ll never run out.


Water jugs are big, bulky and can take up a lot of room, depending on how many you need.

Transporting a few water jugs in the car to the cottage and back leaves less room for everything else your family needs.

You might be surprised how little space many water filtration systems take up.

Many are only about the size of a kitchen garbage bin.

And once it has been installed in the cottage, you don't have to keep bringing bottles back and forth with you all the time.


Water jugs are very heavy, making them hard to use for seniors, children, etc.

An extended stay at the cottage may require a trip to town to replenish/refill your supply of water jugs.

Clean, safe water is readily available right through your taps!

No need to worry about carrying heavy jugs.


Cost effective.  Large water jugs are reasonably priced, even more so with a refill program.

There is an initial investment to consider but you won’t be paying to fill the jugs each time.

You’ll also find that the other advantages make it money well spent.


While filling jugs with fresh, clean water and transporting them to and from the cottage does work for many people, those who are looking for a hassle-free, convenient method might want to consider sitting down with a Water Specialist to discuss the family’s water needs and the best decision for your cottage or home.
