Aqua Falls' Advanced Water Treatment Process
Aqua Falls bottled water offers 18 litres of chilled water, ready and waiting for you to drink whenever you need it. But when it comes to “clean” water, how does Aqua Falls’ bottled water filtration process provide fresher, better-tasting drinking water?
Source Water Collection and Distribution
Drinking water that originates from a natural source is highly susceptible to contaminants – like lead, arsenic, nitrates, and chemical runoff – that get absorbed through the soil. When the water is collected and bottled, it may still contain some of these contaminants.
It takes state-of-the-art technology and expert knowledge of water to ensure every sip is free of contaminants.
Aqua Falls Water Filtration Process
So how does Aqua Falls do it? Aqua Falls delivers bottled water that’s free of minerals, organic compounds, and chemicals by using a process called reverse osmosis filtration.
Reverse osmosis is a multistep solution that uses five stages of filtration to clean the water.
Aqua Falls Bottled Water Explained
As water enters Aqua Falls’ facility, it immediately passes through two parallel carbon filters that remove chlorine and total dissolved solids.
The water is then softened to remove hard-water-causing minerals, like calcium and magnesium, to prevent scaling inside the cooler. The softener will also remove aluminum, copper, and other trace metals, while a secondary polishing softener keeps the water equipment free of residue.
At this point, the water is ready for primary filtration – this is where reverse osmosis comes in. The RO filtration removes any remaining contaminants down to the size of a micron. And in case you’re wondering how big a micron is, it’s really, really small. The Aqua Falls RO process brings the TDS from around 1000 ppm to under 10 ppm.
In the final step of Aqua Falls’ filtration process, the water passes through ozone and ultraviolet filtration to ensure the water is free of microorganisms.
