What is Good Water?

Water Chemistry

Water chemistry begins with a very simple formula – H2O – and in its purest form water is 11% hydrogen and 89% oxygen. What makes water “good” is the lack of impurities.

Everyone is familiar with the ‘hydrologic cycle’ even if they are not familiar with that term. Water at the earth’s surface evaporates from the sun’s heat. The evaporated water becomes a cloud, which then turns into rain or snow. Once on the ground again, the water dissolves some of the minerals in the earth. Eventually the water is heated again and the cycle repeats.

Water that evaporates into vapor is the purest of naturally occurring water. Once it condenses into a cloud and then falls as rain, many impurities in the air and on the ground contaminate the water to varying degrees.
