Water Quality

Good news here: Unlike eggs, fish and some house guests, bottled water doesn’t technically go bad. That said, we do have a “Best By” date to indicate when it may begin to lose its spring taste. Just look for the letters “BB” (for “Best By”) one inch above or below the label, and depending on where your BPA free water bottle was made, the date to the right of those letters will tell you when the water might start losing its refreshingly fresh flavor.

The short answer: just about anywhere. The slightly longer answer: just about anywhere, but not quite everywhere. Treat our products as you would food products: store them at a moderate temperature in a cool, clean or shaded location and keep away from detergents, cleansers, car supplies and other strong-smelling products or chemicals. Accompaniment to picnics, morning jogs and football games, however, is highly encouraged.

We take pride in our water quality and have made Deer Park® water quality reports publicly available for you to view online. The results are updated annually, following the EPA water quality standards for community water system reporting. The reports can also be obtained by calling the 800 number listed on the label of your Deer Park® water bottle.

It isn’t easy. And that’s a good thing. Sourcing and providing great quality water takes commitment, dedication and, in our case, a 10-step quality control process. We check the quality of our water and packaging to ensure they meet our high standards. For a deeper dive, take a look at our Water Quality Report.

Spring water comes from naturally occurring springs that flow to the earth’s surface. Purified water, on the other hand, can come from municipal or spring water supplies, and then undergoes reverse osmosis (meaning natural minerals are added back to the product for consistent taste).

Deer Park® 100% natural spring water can range in pH level from 6.6-8.2 at the time of bottling. The pH of water varies by spring and relies on a number of factors, like mineral level. Deer Park® still Natural Spring Water is sourced from springs across 4 states, so pH levels may differ from bottle to bottle.  Learn more about Deer Park® springs sources 

Deer Park® still natural spring water is filtered naturally before going through a 10-step quality process including filtering to ensure the best quality and crisp refreshing taste

Yes, actually, there is! Spring water is collected from naturally occurring spring sources (like our frontier springs, for example, where we source Deer Park Brand Natural Spring Water). It contains all the naturally occurring minerals of the spring, giving it that pure, clean taste. Tap water, on the other hand, usually comes from a municipal source and then flows directly through your faucet.

Deer Park® does not have detectable levels of flouride. Deer Park® water quality reports are publicly available for you to view online. 

Deer Park® brand offers 100% natural spring water, sparkling water, and distilled water products. Our distilled water is meant for use in small appliances and is available in 1 gallon bottles.

Deer Park® is not purified, it is 100% natural spring water that sourced from springs and is filtered naturally when it’s drained through soil and rock as well as goes trough a 10-step quality process. 

Deer Park® is not a tap water, it is 100% natural spring water that comes from naturally occurring springs that flow to the earth’s surface.

SOURCING OUR SPRINGS

Deer Park® still natural spring water comes from carefully selected springs that span across and around the Eastern Seaboard and beyond. Learn more about Deer Park spring sources.

 

Are there fish in Chesapeake Bay? The answer to both questions is yes! Bottled water is regulated — and regularly. The FDA’s regulations for bottled water are equally as strict as the EPA’s regulations for tap water, if not more. We test our natural spring water up to 60 times more often than most municipal water and each bottling line 250 times annually. To some, that might sound like a lot, but that’s the way we do things around here: going above and beyond the norm for great tasting water.

We don’t bottle Deer Park Brand 100% Natural Spring Water outside of this beautiful region of ours (local distribution is a big part of who we are). So grab a bottle or two next time you’re passing through!

SPARKLING WATER

Not from the bubbling waterfalls of Valhalla or the effervescent rivers Shangri-La (as you might think). Deer Park Brand Sparkling Water is actually made by adding dissolving carbon dioxide gas into our spring water. And that’s all we do to make those refreshing bubbles in the best sparkling water we all know and love.

The adult human body is made up of roughly 60% water, so it’s important to replenish water that is lost naturally throughout the day as we sweat, visit the restroom, and even breathe. All fluids can help maintain a proper water balance in your body, but water — still or sparkling — does so without providing extra calories or added sugar, so it’s a great idea to make it your first choice for daily hydration.

No, our springs are not naturally carbonated (wouldn’t that be interesting?). We create the best sparkling water by adding some fizz (AKA bubbles).

Yep! We just add carbon dioxide to our natural spring water.

We sure do — several flavors, in fact. And they’re as refreshingly delicious as they sound. Hop on over to our product page and check ‘em out!

Oh, man. They’re all great — we can’t choose! But you can. Check out all our products here, then try a bottle (or two) for yourself. Enjoy!

Deer Park® sparkling natural spring water comes in 14 flavors including unflavored. Some of the flavors are Lively Lemon, Zesty Lime,Triple Berry, White Peach Ginger, Orange Mango. Take a look at all Deer Park® sparkling water flavors

Deer Park® sparkling natural spring water is made with real spring water, real fruit flavors, and the addition of refreshing bubbles. It is free of calories, sugars, sweeteners, and colors.
