What is Michigan Mineral Premium Natural Water?
Michigan Mineral is drawn from a deep, protected aquifer 210′ below the earth. It takes rain water approximately 45 years to filter through 8 geologic formations including clay, gravel and limestone to reach the sandstone aquifer which was laid down 170 million years ago. Michigan Mineral is a natural artesian water and is considered an excellent mineral water.
How is it different from other Bottled Waters on the market?
Michigan Mineral is tastier and more thirst-quenching than any other water on the market, however it is not a spring water and it is not purified by distillation or reverse osmosis, which removes everything from the water including minerals, which are essential for good health. These processes leave the water flat and tasteless and do not produce good drinking waters.
Unlike Spring waters, which are by definition surface waters, Michigan Mineral is drawn directly from its deep, protected source, ozonated and micro-filtered in order to disinfect and cleanse the water of everything except its minerals, which are what make water taste so good.
What is ozone and what does it do?
Ozone is comprised of three oxygen molecules which act as an oxidizer and bacterial disinfectant. When injected into the water, ozone purges it of everything except its dissolved minerals. When filling your bottles at The Watershed Wellness Center, an ozone residual in the water helps kill the bacteria in your bottle. This is something that water coming from a water vending machine can never provide. However, please be aware that you must wait two hours before drinking after refilling your jugs to avoid the bitter taste that ozone gives the water.
What are the various strata of earth that rain water travels through before it is drawn to the surface to become Michigan Mineral?
Rain water travels through three separate layers of clay, a twenty foot thick layer of gravel, an eighteen foot thick layer of limestone to a fifty two foot layer of porous sandstone from which Michigan Mineral is drawn. The clay layers are very important because they serve to trap and filter any kind of pollutants that may be in the air and upper layers of the soil. Gravel is also an excellent coarse filter for rain water, however it is the layer of lime-stone that adds the minerals such as calcium and magnesium that gives Michigan Mineral its good taste. The porous sandstone basin acts as the acquifer or storehouse for the water.
Why is Michigan Mineral so cheap compared to other bottled waters on the market?
What makes other bottled waters so expensive besides snob appeal and shipping costs. Michigan Mineral is drawn and bottled on site, cutting out any middle-men or shipping costs. It’s about time we got a gallon of excellent drinking water for 35 cents when you come in and fill up.

What is REVERSE OSMOSIS water?
Reverse Osmosis is water that has been purified by forcing water through an extremely fine membrane that removes everything that is dissolved in the water such as minerals and even dissolved oxygen. This produces the same product as distilled water. It is most often used for flat irons, humidifiers, autoclaves and fish tanks. Purified water is not a prefered water for drinking.
What is the difference between Michigan Mineral and Reverse Osmosis?
Michigan Mineral is a great thirst-quenching drinking water. It is a natural product that’ has not been processed in any way other than to disinfect it and remove any iron through ozonation and filtration. R.O. is a processed water that is not primarily used as a drinking water.
