Aussie water brands that are safe to drink
Australia’s water companies are known for their commitment to water conservation.
The ABC understands many water brands have water filters and filters that work with tap water.
But there’s also plenty of controversy surrounding them.
The ABC has obtained a list of Australian water brands whose products are not filtered.
The brands have been flagged by the Consumer Affairs Council of Australia as unsafe for drinking.
The company that owns the brands has been contacted for comment.
The Consumer Affairs Australia (CA) is calling for an independent audit into the safety of Australian bottled water products.
“We are concerned that some Australian bottled drinking water brands do not adhere to best practice recommendations for the safety and quality of their bottled water and are in breach of the Australian Consumer Law,” said Dr Jillian Smith, a consumer affairs spokesperson.
“The consumer’s right to know the water and its quality must be respected.
We believe that this is particularly important in the context of bottled water, which is the most widely used and most widely available water product in Australia.”
Dr Smith said the Consumer Advice Council of Victoria had also raised concerns about some Australian water brand’s water quality.”CAVE believes it is critical that water companies comply with Australian Consumer law by disclosing information about the quality and safety of their water,” she said.
“A thorough assessment of each brand’s bottled water should include an independent risk assessment.”
It is critical to ensure that the quality of water that you drink is safe and meets the needs of your body.

Water companies that sell Australian bottled products are required to make sure their water is free of pesticides, antibiotics and other harmful chemicals.
The Australian Government said it had no plans to impose a cap on the size of bottled drink sizes.”
We do not believe that Australians are consuming enough bottled water to warrant a cap,” Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce said in a statement.”
This is the first in a series of steps which will be taken to reduce bottled water consumption and its impact on our environment, and also ensure that Australian water products meet international standards.
