Our water never sees the light of day until it reaches your hands! Our confined aquifer water pH ranges from 7.5 to 8.2 throughout the year and is bottled at the source. Always fresh, our water sits no longer than a month. Our water has a shelf life for over a year because our water has natural dissolved minerals in the water. Chemically made alkaline water, such as ionized and/or reverse-osmosis water, alkaline electric charge, has a shelf life for up to 9 days!
