I was going to say Arrowhead is commonly top or near-top rated - but in your area Poland Springs IS the Arrowhead brand name. They also carry several Nestle brands (Nestle is the owner of Arrowhead) from distilled water (not recommended for straight drinking) through mineral added products.

I would say go to the store and read labels, and buy a couple bottles or a pack of individual serving bottles of each brand which also does home delivery (presumably what you are looking for) and test them first before you commit to a supplier and dispenser unit.

Also, if you put Bottled Water Ratings in as a Google search phrase, you can find ratings from various health-oriented groups, Consumer Reports, Huffington Post, etc. - though might or might not cover all delivery brands in your area. NOte also most "spring waters" do not come from springs at all - are just filtered or straight-from-the-tap muni water supplies. And being "spring water" does not mean it is more health or cleaner - in fact, I could point to a lot of springs around the world which would have you sick as a dog from drinking their water - or even dead in the case of some in desert and volcanic areas.

And of course check on delivery charges and cooler rental charges - they can vary widely from zero on more than the water itself, depending on brand and your location.
