Where does your drinking water come from? The machines are all connected to an approved inspected public water supply, such as city water. Kodiak Springs Premium Drinking Water is then produced by a 5-stage purification process right in the water vending machine:
- 5-micron sediment filtration-removed dirt, sediment, and particles
- activated carbon-removes taste, odors, chlorine and chlorine by-products
- reverse osmosis--removes everything else!--leaves just a touch of minerals and all of the oxygen for a fresh, spring-like taste!
- 0.5 micron carbon block filtration--polishes the taste
- ultraviolet disinfection--guarantees safe water into your clean container
The water is purified and stored in a sealed and disinfected tank, and pumped directly into your clean container, passing through ultraviolet light on the way. (TOP)
How pure is the drinking water? The 5-stage purification process using reverse osmosis produces a high-quality water, similar to such bottled products as Aquafina® (TOP)
How much does it cost? The cost per gallon at most locations is $0.25; at those locations that chrage $0.35 per gallon, you can get the $0.25 per gallon price by purchasing 5-gallon quantities. All machines give change; some have dollar bill acceptors. (TOP)
What size container can I use? The machines vend 1, 2, 3 and 5-gallon volumes ( use the appropriate selection button); a convenient fold-down shelf allows small 1-3 gallon containers to be used, and the fill station accommodates a large 5-gallon container. A red “Pause Vend” button allows you to select economical 5-gallon vends and use several smaller containers. As alwasy, please use clean containers with tight-fitting caps to protect your premium drinking water. (TOP)
Are your machines certified and inspected? The machines are constructed to meet all applicable codes and are certified by NAMA (National Automated Merchandizing Association www.vending.org), as well as regularly inspected and tested by the local health department. Each machine has its own Food Service License. Kodiak Springs Premium Water cleans, disinfects and maintains each machine at least weekly, and changes the water filtering cartridges at least monthly.
