The Hallstein Octagon
Working with a team of scientists and water experts, we established 8 core parameters and 4 secondary parameters for defining drinking water quality. Using their criteria we began testing a large number of waters in laboratories. The results were eye-opening, they revealed that there wasn’t a single commercially available drinking water that met their criteria for “high quality”, except Hallstein.
FROM A DEEP ARTESIAN WELL
Deeper wells usually signify the aquifer is protected from environmental contaminants from above – ideally the depth of an artesian well should be 330 ft (100 m) or deeper. The HALLSTEIN well is 700 ft (214 m) deep!
Sources generally are pumped out of the ground to meet demand. Pumping can over time have a negative effect on quality because the natural rate of replenishment is exceeded. Hallstein does not use any additional pumping pressure used for filling beyond the natural artesian pressure. This is to protect source water quality, and keep our source's aquaculture sustainable for generations to come.
Hallstein filters naturally from hitting the surface of the Dachstein into the aquifer through very pure limestone and natural glacial moraine of the same quality limestone. No filtration processes are used on the Hallstein sourced prior to bottling whatsoever. Generally filtration is needed due to excessive mineralogy or other contaminants that exist in a source water. Hallstein has none of that.
Hallstein does not have, and does not need, any form of treatment applied to it. This is mainly due to the extremely low Total Organic Carbon and lack of any other potential impurities that would normally need treatment.
