Our spring water source has achieved Gold and Silver at the Berkley International taste testing awards. It is Sodium Free! Contains 2% RDA for calcium, and has a TDS of 195 ppm.
After the spring water leaves our holding tanks, it passes through a bank of three filters that have a pre filter of 25 microns and a 1 micron absolute filter. Our water is then UV'd , and ozonated; a safe, natural sterilization process which, unlike chlorination, leaves no chemical taste or smell.
We use a PET # 1 bottle blow molding systems to ensure that we can apply our high quality control standards to every bottle we ship. PET # 1 plastic is fully recyclable and is used to make carpets, straps and even clothing! Our bottles are sanitized, filled and then capped in our automated filling machines. Each bottle is then labeled, date stamped to ensure freshness, and then packaged for delivery.
