FAQ

Most mineral waters on supermarket shelves are mostly drawn from surface springs, rivers or even glaciers exposed to the atmosphere, AlkaOne Alkaline Mineral Water comes from deep underground aquifers. Our water’s journey takes it through layers of rock and sandstone that is finally collected in a vast underground reservoir. During this natural filtration process, AlkaOne is infused with essential minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium. The alkalinity of our water is caused by minerals and water subjected through intense pressures and eventually bonding into a natural, balanced structure. This natural underground reservoir is protected by barriers of rock and sediment layers from environmental pollutants and contaminants. Because of natural pressure, AlkaOne water rises to the surface without the use of mechanical pumps or any human interference on artesian wells dug into the aquifer. What you get from AlkaOne is a pure, natural and healthy source of water. We take great care to ensure that AlkaOne is bottled at source, free from contaminants and is delivered to you in a pure and pristine state, with the taste of natural health.

AlkaOne Natural Alkaline Artesian Mineral water is “Naturally Alkaline”, formed over hundreds or thousands of years by mother nature. The pH level in AlkaOne is natural and has not been altered or tampered in any way. AlkaOne’s pH can vary between 8.0 – 8.5 because of natural environmental factors. As with many of mother nature’s other unique creations, it is difficult to fix an exact pH number for AlkaOne Alkaline Mineral water. What you can expect is most certainly a pH level from 8.0 and above.

AlkaOne Natural Alkaline Artesian Mineral Water is 100% Natural. We only use micron filters to remove sediments from our water at source. We do not use distillation processes such as reverse osmosis or deionize our water. Our aquifers are naturally pressurized, meaning the water rises to the surface from an artesian well without the use of mechanical pumps or any human interference.

Groundwater collected in aquifers between layers of poorly permeable rock, such as clay or shale, may be confined under pressure. Water confined in this way is said to be under artesian pressure. If such a confined aquifer is tapped by a well, water will rise above the top of the aquifer, and the aquifer is called an artesian aquifer. The word artesian comes from the town of Artois in France, the old Roman city of Artesium, where many artesian wells were drilled in the Middle Ages.

Our Artesian Wells are one of the few commercially viable sources of alkaline mineral water in the world and the first of its kind in South East Asia. We are located at Chiang Rak Noi in Thailand, approximately180km from Bangkok City. See Google map photo

Normal pH test paper or strips will not work because our water has low ionic conductivity because of its purity and low TDS. These pH testing strips and papers are used more specifically for testing urine samples. If you prefer to use pH test strips, use low ionic strength pH paper or test strips. A calibrated pH meter is the best tool for testing our water alkalinity levels. The water drawn from our aquifer is pH tested constantly in our factory labs not only for alkalinity levels, but also for other factors such as mineral content and purity.
