From the Borehole to the Bottle
Our main source of water comes from our two boreholes at Hadlow, near Tonbridge. The holes penetrate a 5 metre thick layer of clay to reach a sand and gravel bed from which the spring water is drawn. The boreholes are lined with food grade plastic liners with fine strainers at the sand and gravel level, pumps draw the water from the boreholes and pump it underground to two large stainless steel storage tanks housed in a locked building. The tanks have breather filters that are rated at 0.2 microns absolute, this is to prevent any bacteria, algae or dust entering the tanks as they are filled and emptied, they are regularly sanitised. The water at this stage is perfectly clear, drinkable and bacteria free.
The water is then transferred to our own mobile tanker, which is also constructed of stainless steel and has the same grade of breather filter fitted and is also regularly sanitised. The tanker transports the water to our bottling plant at Marden, where it is transferred to the two large storage tanks. Once again these tanks have the same grade of filter and are regularly sanitised. Coliform testing is carried out on a sample of water from every tanker load of water delivered with the results recorded. Stainless steel pumps then transfer the water from the tanks to the ozonator via a 0.6 micron pre-filter and a 0.2 micron filter to ensure that no bacteria, algae or particles are in the water that is bottled.
Prior to filling, all bottles are inspected visually, and sniffed to ensure that nothing is in the bottles to affect the quality prior to being washed and filled. The bottles are then washed, rinsed and sterilised in the automatic bottling plant. Ozone is injected into the water to ensure sterility as this will oxidise any organic matter and even some metals, this will not allow bacteria or organic particles to survive. The water is then transferred from the ozonator to the filling unit of the machine. Bottles are filled in an enclosed area within the machine, which is maintained under positive air pressure using filtered air to retain sterility and the caps are pressed fitted to bottles before being released to the inspection conveyor. At this point bottles are inspected for damage, date and batch coded and released to the warehouse.
All water is quarantined for 24 hours to allow for the bacterial test results to be checked. At this point bottles can be released to our distribution department for delivery.
