Spring Water

Certainly spring water is the safest and natural. It is believed that water from the springs is filled into mineral water bottles we drink these days. It is very safe and also very pure. Water from the bore wells is mostly contaminated these days. Excessive digging, and lack of rains, drainage mixage have made the water worse. Also, the more deeper you dig, the more worse the water will be.

Healthier

I would choose spring water because it's proven to be the safest and more nutrtious than commercial ones.

Go With What You Know

When in doubt go with what you know. I have never even heard fo borehole water. But they even sell spring water at the grocery store and I have tasted it and not had any bad experiences. So based on that, I choose spring water.

Spring Water

Spring water is lot better as it tends to be lot cleaner. And seem to be good enough for those who want to consume it. It also does not contain any impurity as well. So borehole water being full of bacteria. It's a good natural way to have clean water.

looks more fun

I think it looks more fun and you are probably able to do more with spring water since you could also just relax by it and watch it as a view, while you can't really do that with a borehole. I'd be okay with either because at least you get water, but I think I'd prefer having the spring water if I could choose between the two.

Spring

I think if you can create a scenario where it's plausible, then a Spring of water would suffice much better than a Borehole set up.

Spring Water is far better

Spring water is far more better than borehole water or any kind of water because of the nature of its formation and how it's accessed. Not everywhere can say to have access to a spring because of how rare the water source is but borehole water is very common.

Fresh

I would prefer spring water. Taking a bath with spring water is uncomparable. It is fresh and cold as you could feel your body relaxed by it. Also, you can say that it fresh since you can see some living things underwater that can sustain their lives with Spring water.

Nature's Gift

Spring water for me is better than Borehole for the same reason that I've never heard of Borehole before. Spring water is more common known and is advertised as a clean fresh water. The picture of the Borehole water just seems like its dirty

Spring water

Well, Springwater will definitely be my choice over the water from a borehole. Spring water is the most healthier and purer form of natural water and would always be preferred by most of the people if it is available to them. The water from the boring may contain a lot of impurities if the groundwater is contaminated. The water from the boring needs to be purified before it can be consumed for drinking purposes. The water from a bore is not good for your hair and skin if not purified.

I would always choose a clean spring water. It feels so nice to be one with nature, especially if the sping water is not yet visited by a lot of people. It's also very therapeutic to hear the sound of the water and the nature

refreshing

I would prefer spring water if it is available. Most springs are in mountainous regions thus it is usually cool and not that easy to access. Going to one would require some trekking so drinking the water would truly be refreshing. And they say that it contains minerals that are beneficial to the body.

Natural and refreshing

It's so refreshing to drink natural spring water since it's so hard to find safe drinking water these days. Water is so essential to humanity. Our body needs water and this earth needs water. Clean and safe water for us and for our family. Because of great demands for safe drinking water, the numbers of water purifying stations grows rapidly in the past decade.

Fresh

I would rather choose Spring water because it's fresh and natural water. I know that it might have pollution or might be contaminated but of course you have to choose the right place or location to dip yourself in spring water. One place I know that has a great spring water is Fiji. Fiji has great spring water to enjoy yourself and to drink as well.

Borehole Water

Borehole Water
Borehole Water construction is something that is very common in African countries especially where there are high cases of drought. Boreholes are constructed deep below the earth surface in order to get water and requires serious man power or machinery assistance to dig a borehole.

Pros
Borehole Water are good to drink and for domestic purposes as well.
The water is neat if it's not contaminated.
There is abundant water in any borehole constructed.

Cons
It's very expensive to construct a borehole.
Some boreholes are contaminated by oil spillage.

Safer.

I always have this feeling that the borehole water is the safer option here since the water is coming directly from the ground. You get to enjoy this water without having any feeling of whether it is not safe since it comes from the deep ground.

Deep Well Water

We call it Deep Well Water over here and it was widely used from the 40's up to the mid 80's in the countryside. Nowadays we have irrigation systems and a well built Water System coming from giant dams all over the country which filters the water and treats it killing bacteria and other harmful microbes.

Readily available and safe

Borehole water is readily available and safe. Although most people claim spring water is safer, contamination is much easier.

Bore Water is widely available

Spring water is not available at all locations. Bore water has its presence almost everywhere although bore wells are fast sinking these days. Bore's provide the largest source of water for millions of households and should therefore be preserved very carefully. Also, rainwater harvesting should be done on a regular basis to make sure bore water is replenished time to time.

I live in a farm and we use borehole water. We do not have spring water in our village. I believe borehole water is better because it comes from deep within the earth and it is naturally filtered. Spring water can be polluted especially if the spring in near a human settlements.

We also used borehole water before. There was a pump near our house and I remember my cousins and I would fill up our containers with water and carry them to the house. That was my favorite chore when I was young.

I think it is just butva common belief which may or may not be true depending on where you live and the spring itself with regards to whether any pollution has occurred.

The borehole if dug deep enough is the freshest source of water. However you still have to contend with the threat of poisonous gases being mixed in the water.

Spring Water of course! I only got a chance to go to spring when we had to trekked down the mountain and it was just only once so I would love to go back or go in such places. I remember it when we went to Bomod-ok Falls in Sagada. I tried to bath using the borehole before when we visited there and it was also fresh water.

Borehole water is also pure water, in fact it is even better than spring water because it is not contaminated. Borehole water does not flow on the earth surface, therefore, it will never be contaminated.

Do not be so quick to disapprove borehole water as when sieved well and tested is the best. Springs although natural can be affected by aspects on the surface especially where the water passes.

Borehole water seems to have more minerals and also not good for the hairs too. It seems like a bad water. And also not good if you are having some purity issues. I personally have found out that there needs to be better borehole system that can have water source. That is what I have noticed in that case as well.

If the borehole water comes from beyond 200 meters, it is in its pure form. However, id the borehole is just 100 meter or less deep, it contains more minerals. The amount of minerals in the borehole water also depends on the location.

Clean and safe water is what is important. Borehole water can contain many minerals as well as spring water. I think what is important that the water you drink pass through filtration.

True true my friend. Purification is very important for any water collected from the ground or underground for that matter. Many aspects may be at play which may simply not be seen or verified by the naked eye.

Borehole water has the possibility of drying out which happened to the one near our area. When we were younger, there was always a queue of containers near the borehole. Then the water coming out of it became lesser until all the water was sucked out. Now all that remains is a rusty pump.

Spring water is alkaline which is good for the body. But of course, before drinking water from the spring you should have to check it is safe to drink or contaminated. In our country, there's a place with spring water that people would visit because they believe that drinking the water cured their illnesses. I not sure if it is true but many people testified that their health became better after drinking water from that spring.

It would really depend on where we plan to use these types of water. Both would be a No No for drinking unless it is really proven safe for intake then it would be nicer to drink. I would prefer spring water than the water that comes from a borehole. Usually a water from a borehole has color and not clear unless it is filtered thoroughly.

Borehole water is actually super common where I’m from because we don’t really even have any natural springs around here. There, however, is an abundance of clean groundwater so practically every household here has their own pump, the traditional hand-cranked kind. My parents even got an electric pump for their well and they use the ground water as their main source for domestic use and drinking. It isn’t the best water by any means, and I’d certainly prefer spring water, but it’s still natural and perfectly safe to use. There sadly is a slightly higher concentration of naturally occurring arsenic, but it’s nothing too serious.

As much as I would like to choose spring water, the availability is not that common in some places. Most of the time you need to buy this kind of water unlike borehole water which is available and always free for the public. The only reason for you to spend money for this is when you are the owner of the place, you are part of the government and this is your project or you are using it for agricultural purposes. Other than that, people can use it for free.

I would rather have bore whole water. Because you never know I think that it is wise to filter all your water. However I think that spring water's risk of contamination is higher. It is open water and you never know what can be thrown in it. It also used by many people in a community In some communities in my Country it is used for swimming. Imagine people peeing in there and you fetching it do drink, or this water being used as bottled water. I would rather bore whole water, because the bore hole is often closed.

Spring water is safe and clean to drink. But either the two it can be safe to consume. Bore whole water can still be use and if when it's contaminated it can be clean. Bothe can be easily contaminated so just to be safe, it would be better to treat the both for healthy purposes.

I have seen an artesian well that produces water from under the ground that is mainly used for washing the clothes and bathing. They do not use the water for drinking because water underground in the suburban area is not safe. The spring water is what we call mineral water if it comes from the mountain with a clean surrounding. That makes for a better drink that is healthful.

Spring water is a natural source of water compare to borehole water that need to be purified before it can be consume. Spring water is definitely a good choice. Also spring water is naturally filtered than borehole water that is to say underground water, and as we know it that it might be contaminated from above cause everything sips down to the ground.
