We Take Water Seriously


Nestlé Pure Life® Purified Water begins with municipal tap water sources.

While Nestlé Waters North America's spring water products come from our springs, the Nestlé® Pure Life® brand of bottled water begins as groundwater or municipal water. This water goes through a rigorous 12-step quality processing protocol, including granular activated carbon and reverse osmosis, which are specialized treatments not typically used in municipal supplies. As a result, what is sealed in the bottle is not tap water, but purified drinking water. See our different brands of bottled water.


Our 12 Steps to Quality Assurance:

1. Source Receiving
2. Activated Carbon Filtration
3. Demineralization/Purification
4. Water Storage and Monitoring
5. Remineralization
6. Micro-filtration
7. Ultraviolet Light Disinfection
8. Bottling Control
9. Packaging Control
10. Clean-In-Place Sanitation Process
11. Plant Quality Control and HACCP Program
12. Corporate Quality Assurance Program
