Step One - An Activated Charcoal Filter
This filter removes bad tastes and odours, some microbacteria, chlorine and some inorganic contaminants.
Step Two - An Ion Exchange Water Softener
This step removes minerals like calcium and magnesium which are the cause of hard water and conditions the water for step 4.
Step Three - A One Micron Fiber Filter
This filter removes all suspended particles that are larger than 1 micron from the water prior to its entering the Reverse Osmosis System.
Step Four - The Reverse Osmosis System
This Reverse Osmosis System removes 99.3% of all remaining impurities from the 6 contaminant categories.
Step Five - An Ultraviolet Light
The U.V. Light is used to keep the purified water at a "zero" bacterial level while in storage waiting to be bottled.
Step Six - Ozonation
The Ozonation maintains the integrity of our water & insures against bacterial contaminants entering the water during the bottling stage. Hours after bottling the ozone simply breaks down into oxygen.
Once purified, the chemical analysis of the water is as follows:
