    Any individual who has had the benefit of consuming from a spring will tell you it is the best tasting, thirst-quenching water they’ve ever had. Unfortunately, some bottled water companies will use language like this, which can be downright false and misleading. The healthiest way to consume water is to drink it raw from natural sources. That will allow you to preserve your spring water’s structure and mineral content without the trace chemicals and synthetic plastics used by most water bottle companies.

    Filter Life :6 months or 200 gallons
    Operating Pressure :30 - 125 psi
    Operating Temperature: 33 - 100 °F
    Flow Rate: 0.528 gallons per minute
    Certifications: NSF/ANSI Standard 42
    How to replace the EPTWFU01 filter:
    1.Remove the current filter and discard.
    2. Slide the new filter in with the grip oriented horizontally.
    3. Push the filter firmly and turn 90° to the right until it snaps into place. The grip should now be oriented vertically.
    4. Run water through the dispenser for approximately 3 minutes, or 1.5 gallons, to prime the filter before use.

    Sparkling Water

    Sparkling water, also called carbonated water, is instilled with carbon dioxide. Natural sparkling waters are sourced from mineral springs, so they have a high mineral content. For certain brands (Perrier), the carbonation is readded during the bottling process to match the carbonation of the source spring.

    As you may have seen, flavored sparkling water has become incredibly popular. The increase in demand is partly because of health-conscious consumers who have slowed their consumption of soft drinks and instead opt for sparkling beverages.

    Generally speaking, sparkling water is better for you than a soft drink (which sets a shallow bar). Still, scientists continue to study the effects of sparkling water on the body and how it compares to traditional water sources. Like soft drinks, many popular sparkling water brands use chemical flavor enhancers made in a laboratory. While carbonated water appears relatively harmless, consumers who drink excessive amounts may want to consider switching to spring water for an organic mineral profile free of synthetic additives.

    Purified Water

    Purified water is usually faucet water that has been treated. The purifying process removes all contaminants like bacteria, fungi, parasites, and other dissolved solids to make the water potable. However, purification also means that potentially beneficial substances like minerals and probiotic bacteria are removed from the water.

    Many leading bottled water companies purify municipal tap water, rebrand, and resell it in wasteful (and harmful) plastic bottles without naming names. While purified tap water isn’t necessarily the best choice for drinking water, a home filtration system can reduce the impact of many of these harmful contaminants.

    Distilled Wate

    Distilled water is water that has been boiled into a vapor and condensed and collected as a liquid. Inorganic minerals or metals have a higher boiling point than water, so they are left behind when the water turns into steam at 212° Fahrenheit. The distillation process separates contaminants and provides ultra-pure water (great for industrial applications where mineral buildup and corrosion are factors). That being said, nearly all of the beneficial minerals your body needs are absent from distilled water.

    In some ways, it’s helpful to think of distilled water as sanitized water. It includes sanitary medical procedures, kitchen applications, and automobiles and machines. It is devoid of potentially harmful contaminants, but it also lacks the essential minerals that your body needs. Distilled water has various use cases, but regularly drinking distilled water is hard on your body. There is good evidence to show that it’s essential to drink mineralized water – most folks will stick exclusively to purified water, which can eventually become problematic for your health.

    Alkaline Water

    Alkaline water comes from sources near mineral-rich volcanoes. Alkaline water has dissolved (ionized) water that raises the pH level and is less acidic than most other types of water. Proper pH levels can slow down the aging process and have been shown to prevent cancer. Likewise, too much acid (that is, foods and beverages with a low pH level) can negatively impact our health. As a result, Alkaline water is often sought after for its higher and less acidic pH levels.

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which regulates our public drinking water, recommends a pH between 6.5-8.5 on a scale that ranges from 1-14. The pH measures the electrically charged particles in a substance. Purified water and natural spring water have a pH of around seven, considered “neutral” because it has neither acidic nor essential qualities. On the other hand, alkaline water has a higher level than 8-9 on the pH scale.

    Many claim the positive health impacts of consuming alkaline water, including immune system enhancement and colon-cleansing properties. The scientific evidence is not comprehensive, and some studies show positive (but minor) impacts of alkaline water on blood viscosity, blood pressure, and acid reflux. However, it’s important to remember that too much alkalinity in the body can negatively impact your health. Additionally, while there are places with naturally occurring alkaline water, most off-the-shelf alkaline water is not natural. Many commercially bottled brands take tap and subject it to electrolysis to reduce acidity artificially.
