Ever wonder what the difference is between distilled drinking water and spring water? Both are great choices, but you may prefer one over the other depending on what you’re looking for. Distilled water is best for those who want to avoid impurities, while spring water is ideal for those who value water that is produced naturally.
Let’s take a look at the different water options available at Distillata.
Distillata distilled water has meant purity for well over one hundred years. The distillation process removes all minerals and impurities, leaving only less than one part per million (ppm) of total dissolved solids and meeting all chemical requirements of the US Pharmacopeia. We produce distilled water by boiling water and then condensing the collected steam back into a liquid. This process removes impurities and minerals from the water.
This high-quality drinking water is produced by passing through a semi-permeable membrane, allowing only the purest water to flow through. This leaves all contaminants behind thus giving “R.O.” it’s own unique taste. We like to describe it as an intense filtration process. However, to create truly polished water there are a few more steps. To be precise there are five. You will often hear this process referred to as five-stage reverse osmosis filtration.
The term artesian describes a water spring that flows to the surface naturally without the aid of a pump. The water is forced out by the pressure that has built between two impermeable surfaces. Our own protected spring is located near Kent, Ohio. It is monitored daily and exceeds all governmental regulations for drinking water.
A carefully blended mixture of both our distilled water and artesian spring water. The natural minerals of our artesian spring water are blended with our distilled water to appeal to those with discriminating tastes.
