How Can Seniors Get Great Tasting Water at Home?

Instead of purchasing costly bottles of water and having to lug them home every week, many seniors find it easier to switch to a home filtration system or a water delivery service, which can save you both time and money. These options are easy to install and come with responsive customer service, so you can reach someone if you’re having an issue with either quality or functionality.

Here are some of the best ways that we’ve found for seniors to get great tasting water at home.


Sparkletts is a company that offers bottled water, either in cases or in large refillable bottles, delivered right to your front door. Sparkletts, which goes by the name Crystal Springs in some states, offers everything seniors need to have great-tasting water at home. All you need to do is select the products that you want, then sit back and wait for your bi-monthly delivery.

If you’re ordering their larger bottles of water, you can choose between spring water, distilled water, purified water, or fluoridated water, which range between $6.99 and $7.99 per bottle. For their water dispensers, they have unique models that bottom-load, which means that you don’t ever have to worry about lifting the heavy bottles.

If you’re a new customer and want to use their service on an ongoing basis, they’re currently offering a deal for $50 off when you rent a water dispenser and purchase three five-gallon bottles.


LifeSource is a whole-house water filtration system available for customers around the United States.

If you live in an area with hard water, their products are extremely useful. The minerals present in hard water are generally good for your health but can leave unpleasant stains on glassware and can cause scale build-up that will eventually damage appliances. LifeSource combines water filtration and water softening capabilities in many of its products, which offer a salt-free solution to this annoying problem.

A key reason that seniors should consider LifeSource is because of their system. It’s easy to install and doesn’t require regular maintenance or filter changes.

Each LifeSource water filtration system covers every faucet in your house, so you can be sure you’re drinking purified soft water from any tap. Your system will need to be installed by one of their team members, but they guarantee a trained team at every one of their factory outlets, which covers most states in the U.S.

Nestle ReadyRefresh

If you know that you’re going to be regularly stocking your home with bottled water, Nestle ReadyRefresh is a great service that offers great value on recurring orders. Like Sparkletts, you’re given the option to add anything you like to your regular order, which is delivered on a schedule that fits your needs. They have different subsidiaries, so they’re able to cover huge markets throughout the United States, including California, New England, Florida, Texas, and many of the central states.

In addition to purchasing large, five-gallon bottles of water which can be used with water dispensers, they offer a whole selection of Nestle brands, like San Pellegrino, Perrier, and Acqua Panna. If you’re hosting an event and want to add a few flats of sparkling or flavored water to your regular order, it’s easy to log on to the website and purchase these items, which will be delivered with your regular order.


Arrowhead is a Nestle subsidiary that offers water delivery to California and the surrounding states. They offer 100 perfect mountain spring water, which comes from the mountain-fed springs surrounding the Rockies. Many people trust mountain spring water over the city-purified water that comes out of their taps, which is why it’s remained a popular local choice.

If you rent one of their water dispensers, you’ll not only get maintenance and service on it whenever necessary, but you’ll also get $50 off your first order of five-gallon water bottles. In addition to their regular mountain spring water, seniors can purchase flats of flavored sparkling water, which are calorie and sweetener-free.


For seniors with large families, Costco is a one-stop shop for household goods, fresh food, books, and even appliances and furniture. You may not know this already, but if you have a membership, you’re eligible for member-only pricing for regular water delivery. All you need to do is choose your bottle size (three- or five-gallon bottles), add on a water dispenser, and schedule your delivery. They offer delivery every two weeks and you can switch your order as regularly as you like.

Costco offers a lot of unique options for a low price point, which is why it’s become a favorite for many customers. You can choose between spring, purified, or Artesian water, all of which have their own unique tastes and benefits. Their water dispenser is bottom-loading, which makes it easy if you can’t lift heavy loads. Plus, it dispenses both hot and cold water at the press of a button.


If you’re committed to purchasing a water filtration system or arranging regular water delivery, there are usually a few competitors in each market. Do your research, and it’s likely you’ll be able to score a good deal.
