Purified Drinking Water
Blue Dot Waters state-of-the-art 7-stage filtration technique produces exceptionally pure water.
Purified Water is locally sourced from the municipal watershed, and locally processed through a series of filtration techniques to remove chemicals, bacteria, heavy metals, chlorine, and other pollutants. This results in water that is free of chemicals and compounds that can negatively impact you and your family’s health. It’s locally purified so there’s no middle man to drive up cost, and no fuel wasted in transportation. This gives you more a more affordable and fresher water for you and your family, and is easier on the environment.
It is superior in flavor, purity, and value compared to big brand bottled water from supermarkets, and does not sit on shelves for months, or even years, absorbing plastic flavors and toxins from disposable plastic bottles. Using refillable BPA-Free plastic and glass bottles instead of disposable plastic bottles reduces the amount of discarded plastic in our landfills and oceans.
Parts Per Million: A measurement of water purity. If you had a glass of water and split it into a million parts, how many parts of that glass are not water?Ours is usually 1 ppm, so of a million equal parts, only 1 of them is not water. This is exceptionally clean water.
Our Purified Water, which is extremely pure clean, averages 5.5 – 6 pH.
We do not sell distilled water. However, our Purified Water may safely be used in placed of distilled water.
When distilled water is called for, it’s not the distillation process itself that is important, but rather the use of very highly purified water. Both distillation and filtration are just two methods of doing the same thing: water purification.
Distillation is a reliable water purification process, and the resulting water is almost always low in PPMs, so it’s frequently called for in various applications. The quality of filtration systems, on the other hand, are dependent on strict maintenance and a high quality of filters and machine, and the resulting water can vary depending on where it is sourced. For this reason, it’s just easier and simpler to specify distilled water in product directions.
However, at Blue Dot Water, our filtration system is top-of-the-line and meticulously maintained, and our water is tested daily at 1-5 PPM. This is as clean or cleaner than distilled water, and it is thus interchangeable for any purpose that distilled water is called for such as CPAP Machines, Humidifiers, Fish Tanks, Brewing, Hydroponics, Dental Cleaning, etc. We have had customers successfully use our water for these purposes for many years.
Purified Water works very well in any machine, including coffee machines, where mineral deposits are undesired. For other brewing methods, such as pour over and french press, we actually prefer Alkaline Water for it’s smooth texture and low acidity.
For most people, the answer is ½ gallon to 1 gallon per day, but the exact amount will depend on your size and level of activity. Consult with your doctor if you are unsure.
The aggregate filter cleans sediment down to 30 microns in size, which is basically “floaties” – soil, rocks, etc.
The Maxi-Carbon filter removes Chlorine, VOC’s, Pharmaceuticals, and Pesticides.
The 5-Micron Mesh filter removes particulate matter smaller that 5 microns in size, and is employed after the first two stages of filtration have removed larger particles.
Reverse Osmosis, often simply referred to as “RO”, is a process where high pressure is employed to force water through a very fine membrane. This separates dissolved solids, such as salt, from water.
Before serving, purified water is kept in a sterilized environment continuously pumped with ozone gas, which kills bacteria, viruses, fungus, and mold, and oxygenates the water for a period of time.
Post-Carbon filtration is a redundancy filter, employed just before serving, that is used to guarantee purity.
Ultra-Violet light, usually referred to as “UV”, neutralizes micro-organisms. It is the final step that your water goes through just before it is dispensed into your container.
