The Science

PristineHydro™ 10 Stage WRS Process

HOW DOES OUR UNIQUE PROCESS WORK?

STAGE 1 - 5 MICRON

This high capacity filter removes dust, particulates, and rust sediments measuring over 5 microns from the water. Made of 100% pure polypropylene fibers.

STAGE 2, 3 - KDF + CARBON

KDF Increases life of activated carbon by 4-5 times. Reduces chlorine, heavy metals, and bacteria. CARBON: Reduces turbidity, chlorine, chloramines, organic contaminates, pesticides, and chemicals.

STAGE 4 - HIGH EFFICENCY REVERSE OSMOSIS MEMBRANE

Utilizing an ECO friendly 1:1 waste to recovery process, this stage removes undesirable contaminants and pollutants down to .001 microns in size (by comparison, the size of most bacteria is about .5 microns / virus about .05 microns). However, RO does not remove acids (which are liquids and gasses) i.e. sulfuric and nitric acids (acid rain), hydrofluorosilicic acid (industrial waste fluoride), hypochlorous and hydrochloric acids (chlorine reactions), haloacetic acid (chlorine and bromine reactions). If you do not remove the acids, you will drink them. NOT GOOD!

STAGE 5, 6 – DUAL DEIONIZATION

Two Unique Proprietary Laboratory Grade Cation and Anion Resin Filters remove the remaining trace contaminants (i.e. heavy metals) as well as all the invasive bad acids that pass-through STAGE 4.

STAGE 7 – REMINERALIZATION

In this stage the number of beneficial ions is increased in the water. This results in a high pH and a low controlled TDS comprised of magnesium bicarbonate with traces* of calcium and sodium bicarbonate, as well as silica and chloride.

STAGE 8 – COCONUT CARBON

Enhances flavor and removes odors while polishing the water to perfection. This carbon filter is made from coconut shell that has undergone a steam activation process to create its activated carbon form with micro-pores. During activation, it creates millions of pores at the surface of the carbon, thus increasing the total surface area.

STAGE 9, 10 - RESTRUCTURING + RECHARGING

In this final stage the water is run over lodestones and quartz crystals simulating the properties of a living stream. This naturally restructures, recharges, and reprograms what was once damaged water into the purest water on planet Earth since The Industrial Revolution.

*Trace minerals as well as their values will vary with various source water chemistry. 

NOT JUST ALKALINE 

There must be sufficient alkaline minerals in the water we drink! The trick is getting these minerals in clean water.

The primary alkaline minerals in nature’s original water formula are calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium bicarbonate electrolyte salts (calcium and magnesium bicarbonate are complex hydrate salts that only exist in liquid form).

“Alkaline Water” has become the latest marketing buzzword word for bottled water and water filtration system companies. What consumers don’t understand is that you can “alkalize” dirty water by just adding alkaline metals to the water. In other words, saying a water is “alkaline” does NOT necessarily mean the water is 100% free of harmful acids and contaminants.  

Our filtration process first eliminates contaminants AND harmful acids like Acid-Rain before properly remineralizing the water.

MAGNESIUM BICARBONATE

Magnesium bicarbonate is a complex hydrated salt only found in liquid form, it is naturally present in pristine drinking water, it is not found in any food. It is impossible to get MAGNESIUM BICARBONATE through eating food.

  • Magnesium Improves Overall Health

Magnesium is needed for many biochemical reactions in the body. It helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein.

  • Magnesium Removes Toxins

Sufficient magnesium levels lead to safer detoxification and chelation [the bonding of ions and molecules to metal ions which help remove toxins from the body. ]; in fact, it makes chelation possible. Also, bicarbonate salts safely and effectively help buffer excess acids from the body.

Needless to say, magnesium is extremely important for the body to function optimally.

Magnesium bicarbonate is absorbed with water into the bloodstream through the small intestine. Man-made magnesium compounds do not naturally address a deficiency. Metal magnesium supplements are not properly absorbed and utilized by the body and will end up in the toilet.
