UNZ Water Limited is a privately owned New Zealand company and has contracted Living Water Enterprises to bottle water for UNZ at the Aquifer source. Living Water Enterprises operates a highly sophisticated bottling facility and plant, tapping directly into the Otakiri Aquifer, in the beautiful Bay of Plenty in New Zealand.
The source of UNZ water is a deep 'artesian' confined aquifer - the Otakiri Aquifer. UNZ is held, deep down under, protected by layers of porous rock, sand and earth, for at least 1800 years. It is the combination of the depth of the aquifer, its age, location and the inherent 'life' of the water that makes it so different to any other bottled spring or mineral water available on the market.
The significance of an artesian spring is that the water has surfaced on its own, without any pumps or man-made pressure. Water requires a stage of maturation. It only surfaces when it carries sufficient energy to overcome gravity. In an ideal world we would all have access to a local, natural spring from which we could fill our own bottles. However, less than 1% of the earth's water sources come from natural underground sources. UNZ bottle this unique natural water source for you, giving you all the benefits of an artesian spring in your own kitchen.
The colossal natural pressure in the aquifer pushes the water to the surface, some 1000 feet above the aquifer, where it is captured and carefully filtered prior to bottling. The systems do not interfere with the natural energy of the water, or alter its organic composition in any way. Instead, they are designed to emulate the aquifer, where confining layers of rock and clay impede the movement of contamination. UNZ water is captured and bottled at source, in exactly the life-giving way that nature crafted it. At no stage in the bottling process does UNZ touch the atmosphere or even sunlight. This makes for the purest form of naturally enhanced water. It remains untouched by outside forces until the seal is cracked on a bottle.
