Drinking water is growing in popularity

Posted:

"It's definitely the trend with me. I don't drink soda anymore, all I drink is water," says John Jaffe.

It's a nationwide trend, for years soda was the number one drink, but Beverage Digest says that's changing. Americans now drink an average of 44 gallons of soda a year, compared to 58 gallons of water.

"Every day of the week probably about 3 to 4 bottles a day." That's how much water Jeremiah Serven drinks now. "I changed because I noticed in the mornings my stomach would hurt, I'd be nauseated so I switched over my drinking to water."

He's not the only one changing his habits.

"We drank lots of soda years ago, but we've just gotten away from that as we've gotten older. We just appreciate the water a little more," says Robert Goins.

It's a trend that Aqua Systems, a Water Super Store, is benefiting from.

"Our bottle water sales have gone almost through the roof," says salesman Lou Valderas.

He says people are realizing the benefits of drinking water. "It's good for your body, everyone needs the hydration, it cleanses your body, you want nothing but the best."

He says he's also seeing a growing interest in businesses wanting water coolers. "Two called me back and said they wanted to have it at their business, good quality water for their staff."

It's a choice that many are making, switching from sodas to water.

"I felt a lot better when I drank water. The pop would make me crash, but water, I'd feel great," says Jaffe.
