Our Process: How Southern IL Gets Pure, Filtered Drinking Water
- Initially, the source water goes through a 5 Micron filter to remove any large particles.
- Carbon filtration eliminates any volatile compounds, such as chlorine.
- The Dual Stage softener takes out all of the hard minerals found within the source water before the Safety softener, which double checks the procedure.
- Testing of the water softness is conducted by the Hardness monitor.
- The Pressure monitor regulates an even 32 pounds per square inch to ensure that the Distiller functions properly.
- If either one of these two monitoring systems falter, the whole process shuts down immediately.
- Purification via the Vapor Compression Still is comprised of boiling water at 212° Fahrenheit, moving the steam over, and condensing it back into 100% pure water.
- As this water moves into a Transfer tank the waste water, which is just over 50% of the water flowing into the Distiller, goes down the drain. The Transfer tank pumps approximately 60 gallons of water into one of two 6,400 gallon storage tanks.
- The pure water in the Storage Tank remains in stable and sanitary conditions until the bottling process is ready to begin.
- A 5 Micron filter is used as a safety precaution to ensure a perfect drinking water.
- From the Storage Tank, the water is pumped through our 3 Stage Mineral Injector, which adds Calcium Chloride, Magnesium Chloride, and Sodium Bicarbonate for taste.
- Then the 02 Ozone tank safely eliminates inorganic, organic, and microbiological problems such as bacteria, viruses, and protozoans. Ozone is also used as a chemical free alternative of preserving the taste associated with Rainbow Pure Water. This is the last step before the purified water is bottled.
- Our 3-5 gallon bottling unit is a self-enclosed four stage cleaning, filling, and capping machine. All bottles go through a 140° Fahrenheit hot tank for the cleaning stage: rinsing, soap, disinfection, and final rinse. They are mechanically flipped over in the filling station, filled, capped, and sealed. Once the water is bottled and sealed, it is ready for distribution.
