Bottled-Water: Proven Safe Drinking Water

The tragedy with the drinking water in Flint, Michigan in the United States serves to highlight the importance of the bottled-water industry.

America is perhaps one of the most regulated countries in the water, with a variety of public inspectors and agencies responsible for overseeing the safety of everything including food and water safety.

So how is it that even in America, public drinking water can become so poisoned with lead, it is having a negative impact on the health of an entire city; so much so that the FBI has been reported to begun to investigate the issue?

Despite all the dangers that can be lurking in your glass, obtaining safe-clean drinking water can be easy.

Bottled water companies that utilize water treatment equipment like Norland’s Reverse Osmosis, distillation, vaporization and Ozone machines remove 99.9% of harmful containments.

RO, or Reverse Osmosis, systems are designed to produce low dissolved solids water from tap or well water. These systems use highly efficient RO Membranes and the resulting product is so clean it is used in everything from food processing to hospitals.

Vapor compression, water is heated the resulting steam is separated. The end result is high-quality, distilled water (less than 1 ppm TDS) at the lowest possible cost. Spectrum Vapor Compression Systems from Norland can produce up to 3,000 gallons a day and have 98% less waste water than other models.

Last but not least, Ozone machines shoot a stream of ozone through water as it runs through a pipe, killing almost all biological organisms in the water.

Ozone is an unstable, colorless gas, a powerful oxidizer and a potent germicide. It has a much higher disinfection potential than other disinfectants such as chlorine.

Ozone consists of three parts of oxygen. Once ozone is generated, it takes a short time for it to break apart and return to its natural form of oxygen. As this phenomenon occurs, the free atom of oxygen will seek out any foreign particles in the water and be attracted to them. 

This action creates an environment where bacteria or organic matter virtually disintegrate when they come in contact with this free oxygen molecule. This in turn protects water from waterborne, bacterial contamination. Ozone is used in the bottled water industry because it controls the growth of bacteria in water. It is desirable because it can do this without leaving a residual taste, such as you would find with chlorine.


When you reach for a bottle of water that’s been purified by Norland’s equipment, you and your customers can rest easy knowing you are drinking the cleanest water possible.
