You may have tasted our fresh spring water, but have you ever put any thought into how the water gets from spring to bottle? Or how about how a spring works in the first place? Well, read on today to find out the answer to these questions and more!
Spring water, as the name implied, is water taken from a natural spring. Now, natural springs are more or less of a buzzword that this thrown around when talking about bottled water, but what does it actually mean? Natural springs are a place where water from an aquifer flows out of the ground. All of this is done naturally, with no obtrusion to the ecosystem or water cycle.
But what, what’s an aquifer? Aquifers are a place where water is stored underground, deep underneath many layers of rock, sand, and sediment. Water collected on the surface seeps down into an aquifer, and all of the rocks, sand, and sediment serve as a filter, taking out all of the impurities and creating pure drinking water. This water is then collected into the aquifer, which flows out of the spring, and into a Glen Summit bottle.
One of the advantages that spring water has over purified or filtered water is that it is naturally filtered by Mother Nature herself; no chemicals required. What this means for you is that your water will taste fresher, be healthier, and contain many minerals (thanks to the layers of filtration) that other water may not. Did we mention that it is all natural, and that these springs have been flowing for millions of years?
