Water Purification Methods: All You Need to Know

The many water purification methods.

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 recondensed and bottled. But while the boiling process kills bacteria, it also removes natural minerals, which makes the water tasteless and reduces its health benefits.

Deionization – also 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 filtration – water is filtered through microscopic holes to eliminate microbes and contaminants.

Reverse osmosis – water 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.

Ozonation – water 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 that are filtered with reverse osmosis also use chlorine.

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 over 15 years through glacial sediments of a natural formation called an esker. And then it’s bottled right at the source. Nothing added. Nothing taken away.
