Potable water is water which is fit for consumption by humans and other animals. It is also called drinking water, in a reference to its intended use. Water may be naturally potable, as is the case with pristine springs, or it may need to be treated in order to be safe. In either instance, the safety of water is assessed with tests which look for potentially harmful contaminants.

1. Cleaned of Harmful Contaminants- including chlorine, fluoride, pharmaceutical drugs, metals (mercury, lead, arsenic), chemicals, bacteria and more.
2. Replenished with Natural Minerals - water filter systems remove these minerals from the water; therefore, re-mineralization is required to ensure the naturally occurring minerals are present. Drinking de-mineralized water can actually leach minerals from bones and teeth.
3. Alkaline pH Balanced - ensures optimal health, water filter systems and contaminants typically leave the water acidic.
4. Great Natural Spring Water Taste - great tasting water is fundamental to ensure proper hydration - when water does not taste good alternative beverages are typically selected.
