Le Bleu Guarantees the Highest
Quality Water Over Time
Le Bleu provides consistent purity, gallon after gallon, year in, year
out. No other water treatment technology can guarantee consistent quality
over time. The purity of your drinking and cooking water is guaranteed
with Le Bleu Ultra Pure Bottled Water. We challenge you to taste Le Bleu
at room temperature. Notice the difference.
Filtered water has passed through a fine strainer and/or
activated carbon. While carbon filters reduce disagreeable
tastes and odors, they are not effective in removing
contaminants such as arsenic, copper, lead, nitrates,
parasites, sodium, sulfates and the list goes on. A
filter can also become a breeding ground for bacteria
as the organic material which remains in the filter
begins to decay. Another drawback is knowing when to
replace the filter. Some manufacturers suggest replacing
filters when bad taste or odor returns. In reality,
a filter may be able to control taste and odor long
after it has lost it's ability to reduce tasteless,
odorless organics such as THMs (trihalomethanes) and
chloroform which are byproducts of chlorinated water.
The process used in water softeners is called deionization.
Water softeners treat hard water by simply exchanging
(an ion exchange) sodium for minerals such as calcium
and magnesium. Ion Exchange Softeners are limited in
their ability to purify water for drinking purposes
and because sodium is added, softened water could preset
problems for people on low salt diets.
Numerous spring waters have been cited for contamination issues because
no source is protected, pristine or free from potential contamination
from the earth or man. According to the National Cancer Institute there
are over 100,000 chemicals commonly used by Americans in household cleaners,
solvents, pesticides, food additives, lawn care, and other products. And
every year, another 1,000 or so are introduced. These chemicals dangerously
pollute our rivers and streams and raise concerns about the overall contamination
of the earth's water supply.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems force water under high pressure through a
synthetic semi-permeable membrane to reduce inorganic minerals. These
systems vary widely in their ability to reject nitrates, chlorides and
some other contaminants. RO performance is affected by water pressure,
water temperature, pH, bacteria, dissolved solids and the chemical contaminant
level of raw tap water. Like other filtration systems, gradual clogging
of the system by collected contaminants will result in declining effectiveness
and can also lead to contamination from bacterial growth.
RO can have up to 90% wastewater and 10% product water.
This isn't going to continue as water becomes more and
Steam distillation kills harmful bacteria and viruses,
removes virtually all foreign particles, inorganic minerals,
heavy metals, chlorine and most volatile organic chemicals
Water is heated in a chamber and turned into vapor (steam). This
water vapor rises leaving impurities behind in the boiling
chamber. The purified vapor then enters a condenser
where it is cooled and returned to the liquid state.
Steam distillation is widely recognized as the single
most effective method of purification. At Le Bleu, not
only do we steam distill our water but we perform a
5-step purification process. Le Bleu ultra pure water
is just that - ULTRA PURE.
