Hickory Springs Bottling, Inc. goes to great lengths to protect and monitor our water products. Multiple stages of water filtration include carbon filtration, micron filtration and particulate filtration to remove sediment and particles. All our bottled water products are treated with ozone to provide the highest level of purification.
Ozone is used instead of chlorine because it leaves no residue and is quickly dissipated without leaving any odor or taste to the products. Ozone is oxygen (O3) which bubbles through the water just before it is bottled. Within a few hours after the product is bottled and sealed, the ozone converts back to the same form of oxygen we breath (O2).
