The "where" and "why" of artesian water
Mineral water can be either natural or artesian. Artesian water is "alive" and is from a well that taps an aquifer, which is a huge storehouse of mineral spring water.
A brief explanation of aquifers:
- The right environment for an aquifer is soil that has porous rock, sand and gravel, which are nature's filters, and slate.
- When tapped, the pressure of the flowing water, commonly called "artesian pressure", pushes the water above the ground level, sometimes to the surface.
- Artesian spring water wells are extremely rare. We at Brilliant Springs were lucky to hit the artesian spring at a great depth with 14" static pressure, so that we get an extraordinary amount of water per minute.
- Our Brilliant Springs artesian water contains just the right amount minerals and trace elements for healthy water and great taste!
