The key differences between spring water and filtered water
With the growing awareness that sugar-laden drinks aren’t good for your health, more people are appreciating that water is the best and healthiest way to stay hydrated. But with so many choices of water available, it can be hard to figure out which is the best type of water for you, your family and your workplace.
Filtered water refers to the water from water filtration systems that are connected to the mains water. Big Springs water filters are a twin system filtration system that has a combination of fine sediment and carbon filtration.
The fine sediment is used to remove and larger particles or matter including sand, food matter, algae or dust. The silver impregnated carbon block for chemical, taste and odour removal. While water filtration systems don’t offer a natural product, they do vastly improve the taste of normal municipal water supply.
Big Springs Natural Spring Water is a 100% natural product that has no chlorine or fluoride added to it. We source our natural spring water from a 4-metre spring that is naturally fed by an aquifer. This water is filtered through fine sands and granite resulting in low total dissolved solids (TDS), which gives the water a sweet taste compared to hard water with a high TDS.
Our Natural Spring Water is extracted from a single source. We use UV, fine-micron and silver ion technology to ensure that our water is pure and clear of any contaminates. The result is pure, delicious, natural spring water rich in natural minerals.
