Water Purification Methods: All You Need to Know

The many methods of water purification.

Water does a lot more than just quench your thirst. It provides you with energy, health and vitality. Here are a few different purification methods used to clean water

Distillation – Steam from boiling water is re-condensed and bottled. But while the boiling process kills bacteria, it also removes natural minerals, which gives it a bland taste and reduces its nutritional value.

DeionizationAlso known as demineralization, this process uses ion exchange resins to bind and filter out minerals. The results of this artificial process are similar to distilled water. 

Micron filtrationThe water is filtered through microscopic holes to remove microbes and contaminants.

Reverse osmosisWater is forced through a    membrane using high pressure to filter out microbes, chemicals and all minerals.

Ultraviolet light – Water is passed through UV light, which kills most contaminants.

OzonationWater is disinfected by adding ozone gas, which kills most microbes. However, this process has been linked to bromate, which is a health concern.

Chlorination – Municipalities add chlorine disinfectant to the water supply. But while chlorine is effective in killing pathogens, there are health concerns about its byproducts called trihalomethanes (THMs). Note: some bottled waters treated by reverse osmosis are also chlorinated.

Raise a glass to nature’s nectar
Eska water is what happens when we let nature follow her true nature, giving you all the benefits of pure, untouched hydration.

Unlike the above methods, Eska is naturally filtered by the land for more than 15 years, passing through glacial sediments of a natural formation called an esker. Drawn directly from the source, it’s then bottled without adding or removing anything in bottles made from 100% recyclable materials including rPET, a recycled and eco-responsible product made in Quebec.
