Only the Best Water for the Holidays
When it comes to dinner for the holidays, there are always hard decisions to make: turkey or ham? Unlike Thanksgiving, which often comes standard with a turkey dinner, mashed potatoes, gravy, yams, cranberry sauce, and a few other favorites, there’s a much bigger selection for the next holiday’s feast. When planning for your big fancy dinner, you must make sure to choose the best ingredients, including your water. Looking for recipe ideas?

But What About Your Water?
When you’re trying to prepare the best holiday dinner this year, one thing you might not be thinking about is the quality of your water. What does water have to do with preparing your holiday dinner? Everything. Think about it. Water is used to cook the potatoes. If your water doesn’t taste great, your potatoes are likely to soak up the bad flavor of your water. Decided to brine a turkey or ham this year? The water you used for the brine can leave a bad, lingering aftertaste in your otherwise scrumptious main dish.
How to Get Great Water This Holiday Season
If you’re looking to get great water for the holidays, whether it’s part of the drinks you serve, used to cook the main dish, or even used to clean the house after all your guests have left, Superior can help. Here are two things you can do for your water to make it better-tasting and better to use when cleaning:
Get a Water Softener
Especially if you live in Denver, your water is most likely quite hard. Hard water doesn’t mean your water is frozen or that there’s some weird feeling to it. Instead, it means there’s a lot of “hard” minerals in your water, usually calcium or magnesium. These minerals can cause build-up in your pipes, hard water stains, and fewer bubbles from your soap. A water softener replaces those hard minerals with sodium, which is a much “softer” mineral. However, just because sodium is added to your water, that doesn’t mean it makes your water taste salty. Get a water softener to make your holiday foods taste better and to save your pipes and dishes. You’ll be glad you did.
Invest in a Water Purifier
Your water may meet EPA standards, that doesn’t mean it tastes the best. The EPA doesn’t require that all contaminants be removed from your water to be safe to drink. So, your water could taste funny or even look weird and still be safe to drink according to the EPA, even if you probably wouldn’t want to drink it. Rather than dealing with the water from your tap, get a water purifier to get the freshest and purest water that not only looks great, but tastes great, too.
