We so often hear about the quality of water; whether it’s the “poor quality of drinking water”, or a “high quality Spring water” – it is very misleading. While one type of water might be considered high quality for one purpose, it may be considered sub-par for another.
Let’s understand the terminology:
Water has a certain “quality” because of the substances it contains – called constituents or impurities – and how suitable it is for a particular use.
1) Water that has dirt in it may be useful for watering a garden, but not suitable to ingest.
2) Drinking water (when used for heating) may cause a water heater to run inefficiently.
3) Water that is acceptable for running a water heater efficiently may not be of acceptable quality for power generation.
You cannot tell if water is high quality just by looking at it! You first need to understand its physical, chemical and biological composition before making an assessment.
These factors are varied: Depending upon the water source and the environment where the water is found.
Once you understand the nature of a water sample, you can treat it so that it has the correct quality for your intended use.
People have treated water since ancient times in order to use it – but as we have made advances in science and technology, we have developed treatment methods to take advantage of what we know about the composition, contaminants and uses for water.
Aquazania’s water is some of the purest water available; we strip down our water supply – municipal or other wise – to literally nothing but H2O. It undergoes a strenuous 9-stage purification process, to a point where we deem it necessary to re-add 3 key minerals (Magnesium, Calcium and Potassium) to enhance the flavour of the water.
Water quality might be relevant – but our water quality is guaranteed to be continually of the highest possible standard.
