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 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 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.
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.
Many people believe that pure water is neutral in pH, which is at 7 on the pH scale. In fact, the cleaner water gets, the more acidic it gets. Our Purified Water, which is very clean, averages 5.5 – 6 pH.
Our Purified Water is as clean, or cleaner, than most distilled water. It can be used interchangeably where distilled water is called for – CPAP Machines, Humidifiers, Fish Tanks, Brewing, Hydroponics, Dental Cleaning, etc.
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.
Take your weight and divide by two. This will give you the number of ounces you should drink per day. For most people, this is ½ to 1 gallon per day, but the exact amount will depend on your size and level of activity.
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.
