About Our Water
Saskatoon Bottled Water Company has an 8-step process for treating our bottled water. This allows us to achieve the high-quality water that our customers expect. We start with Saskatoon tap water and proceed from there.
1. Saskatoon water is passed through a 60-inch carbon filter to remove taste and odour.
2. Next, the water goes through a 5-micron filter to remove any remaining sediment.
Cation Ion Exchange Tank
3. The water then goes to a cation ion exchange tank. Here the soluble, positively charged minerals are removed. Calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium.
Anion Exchange Tank
4. Next to an anion exchange tank to remove all the negatively charged soluble minerals. We monitor our water to achieve a target range. 1 part per million total dissolved solids.
5. The water is again passed through a 5-micron filter for a final polish.
6. The last step is to make sure the water has no bacteria. It is passed through a 10 gallon per minute ultraviolet light. This destroys the DNA of any bacteria that might be present.
7. Bottling is the next step. The bottles are washed in a 135 degrees solution for one minute with a high-pressure pump and sprays. The bottles are then washed in disinfecting solution for one minute. Finally, they are rinsed with fresh pure water.
Filled and Capped
8. Water and bottles meet at the bottling machine where they are filled and capped.
