What is the difference between Spring Aqua and reverse osmosis?

Spring Aqua



Pure Like Spring Water
There are several mountain springs that attract millions of people annually due to the healing properties of the water. These are known as the “healing” or “curative” waters. Scientists studied the layers of rocks and water content so that we could deliver the ECO System (Mountain in A box) into your home professionally installed.


Drinking clean water is essential in promoting good health.

14 Filter Technology
14 filtration system, SGS Approved, removal of pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, heavy metals, bacteria, viruses, and chemicals.

Fresh Clean Water
Spring Aqua water is “fresh water” from the faucet, it is not “stored water” in a tank or a bottle. Simply pour the water into a glass in your kitchen and drink.

No Waste
It does not waste and drain any water.

No Electricity
Energy Independent, no power is required, 100% natural flow from the water pressure coming from your home.

Simple to Maintain
A simple maintenance schedule of changing filters every 1600 gallons or 18 months will ensure the quality of drinking water.


Medical Grade Faucet
Faucet is SGS Certified Medical Surgical Grade 316-L Stainless steel. This prevents the leaching of the metal from the faucet into the drinking water.

Filters Customized by Region
Water quality is different region by region; therefore, filters are localized by region to accommodate the type of water in the local communities.


Professionally Installed
Professional Installation by a certified licensed, bonded, and insured contractor.


Amazing Warranty
Standard purchase includes up to 15-year warranty.


Continuous Updates
Filters are certified up to 18 months before filter change is required. This process allows customers to receive the latest and newest improved filters models during filter change cycles.


NSF Manufactured
Manufactured in an NSF certified facility. This guarantees the manufacturer is current on all sanitation and quality assurance processes.


SGS Certified
Spring Aqua is SGS Certified and Tested


Hydrogen Water
1.4ppm-1.6ppm in dissolved molecular hydrogen (H2). H2 is gaining significant attention from academic researchers, medical doctors, and physicians around the world for its recently reported therapeutic potential and a very strong antioxidant.

Alkaline Water
Alkaline water pH of 9.2-9.5. Blood that is slightly alkaline, or 7.35 to 7.45, is optimal for proper body functions. Most people with an imbalance are too acidic which can cause a variety of health ailments. By drinking alkaline water is an attempt to help balance the body’s pH.

Cooking and Drinking Water
pH of 7.8-8.2 left side faucet water for drinking coffee, tea, and the application of cooking with clean water.

Micro-Clustered Water

By drinking water that contains fewer molecules, or micro-clustered you can hydrate your body more quickly and effectively, enhance energy levels, improve your overall aerobic capacity and health and prevent premature aging. [L3]

Mineral Water
Minerals added back into water as Micro-Nutrients. The Maifan Stone is a special mineral rock used in Chinese Medicine is purified at high temperature to remove impurities, therefore leaving it in the pure crystal form. It is known for some of its trace minerals like calcium, iron, copper, zinc, magnesium, and selenium.

Reverse Osmosis



Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and larger particles from drinking water. In reverse osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure, a colligative property, that is driven by chemical potential differences of the solvent, a thermodynamic parameter. [R1]



Reverse osmosis can remove many types of dissolved and suspended species from water, including bacteria, and is used in both industrial processes and the production of potable water.

However, key differences are found between reverse osmosis and filtration. The predominant removal mechanism in membrane filtration is straining, or size exclusion, so the process can theoretically achieve perfect efficiency regardless of parameters such as the solution's pressure and concentration. [R1]



In 1977 Cape Coral, Florida became the first municipality in the United States to use the RO process on a large scale with an initial operating capacity of 11.35 million liters (3 million US gal) per day.


Reverse osmosis is commonly used for desalinization plants, wastewater treatment, drinking water purification, food industry, maple syrup production, window cleaning, and reef aquariums. [R1]

Household reverse osmosis units use a lot of water because they have low backpressure. As a result, they recover only 5 to 15% of the water entering the system. The remainder is discharged as wastewater. Because wastewater carries with it the rejected contaminants, methods to recover this water are not practical for household systems. Wastewater is typically connected to the house drains and will add to the load on the household septic system. [R1]


The process of R.O will demineralize the water. Therefore R.O water contains no minerals unless a separate mineral filter is added.

R.O does not micro cluster the water.

Reverse osmosis is a filtration method that removes more than 99% of all the contaminants in water. The result of R.O water is nearly pure water, which has a neutral pH of 7. But if it’s exposed to air, RO water drops down to an acidic pH range of 5 – 5.5. [R2]

RO System does not produce negative hydrogen ions.
