Raw Water and What You Need to Know

Have you heard about the craze of drinking raw water? We mean real raw water! Why you may ask? Well, we asked the same thing.

Raw Water

According to treehugger.com there are actually people out there willing to purchase raw water at the crazy price of $6 per gallon. Other articles report even higher prices at $16 a jug, with a bottle deposit of $22. Apparently, the company selling this “live” water says it’s providing “toxin-free water,” but anyone drinking from a spring or stream is getting a stomach full of bacteria, parasites and viruses that may or may not be harmful, say food safety experts. More frightening is they could also be getting a “mouthful of farm waste runoff, septic tank spillover, chemicals and pesticides,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and various health departments caution. “The claim is that the unfiltered and untreated spring water has microbes that are beneficial and are “imperative for optimal physical and mental health. Without these probiotics we’re not able to fully assimilate all the nutrients in our food.” Experts at the New York state department of health say “by the time the spring reaches a collection point, it could have chemicals, bacteria, parasites and viruses in it that might make people sick. Waterborne organisms (Cryptosporidium, Giardia and E. coli) can cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.” So again we ask why? Especially when Fontis Water is here and ready to deliver to your home or office.

The Fontis Difference

When rain falls on the rolling Blue Ridge Mountains, it seeps through porous rock that acts as a natural filter. After its underground journey, the crystal clear water makes its way to our deep rock spring near Blue Ridge, Georgia.

Absolute Purity. Guaranteed.

To further assure its purity before we deliver to your home or office, Fontis natural spring water undergoes filtration and ozonation at our bottling facility. Ozonation is a process where ozone (O3) is bubbled through the water to eliminate any naturally occurring impurities that may be present. This extra step guarantees absolutely pure drinking water. Every hour, the water is tested to ensure customers get the purest, highest quality natural mountain spring water available. The final product is then carefully bottled in 3-gallon, 5-gallon, 1-gallon and single-serve containers.
