What is Artesian Water?

Purified. Spring. Distilled. Reverse Osmosis. Mineral. Sparkling. Still.

Who would have thought bottled water would be so complex? There are so many types available that it is easy to become confused and overwhelmed when trying to decide which is best for you. But, never fear, we are here to help you become familiar with this terminology and make a wise choice for yourself, your family, and your employees.

I thought we would start with our most popular variety- artesian spring water. You are certainly familiar with the term spring (water from a natural spring, usually underground rather than rainwater or a river) but, what is Artesian water?

Defining Artesian Spring Water

The term artesian comes from Artois, a province in France where such wells were first used (thank you It is really a fancy term for a simply perfect natural phenomenon.

How is Artesian Water Created?

The short answer is free-flowing. Springs become artesian when the water flows to the surface naturally without the aid of a pump. These types of springs seem to defy gravity but in reality, the water is being forced out by the pressure that has built between two impermeable surfaces.

Water flows down a decline into a porous substance such a rock, sand or gravel. Surrounding the porous substance is rock or other material so hard that the water cannot escape through it to reach ground level. This combined with the flow of water creates pressure that is only released when it finds an escape. In our case, the escape is a well. Some artesian springs even rise above ground level without any man-made assistance at all.

Why Choose Artesian Spring Water?

The attraction to artesian spring water comes from the natural filtering caused by traveling at high pressure through the porous surface. This is not only mother nature’s pre-filtering of the water but, it also picks up beneficial minerals along the way. Those minerals contribute to refreshing tasting water, lacking flatness. I would even go as far as saying that artesian spring has a “body” to it almost like legs produced by good red wine.

Our very own Distillata artesian spring is a protected source in Kent, Ohio. This spring has produced our most popular line of water that can be purchased in a variety of sizes including 5-gallon spring water bottles.
