The Difference Between Spring Water & Filtered Water

Do you know where your drinking water comes from? It’s strange to think of the concept and realise that you might not actually be sure of the answer. As humans, we need water and drink it every day but aren’t necessarily educated about its origins. Whether you drink your H2o from a tap, bottle or filter, it’s important to know where your water was sourced from and what that means for you.


At Custom Water, we offer two different types of water to our customers. You can fill your water bottles with filtered water or spring water. Both are healthy, clean and pleasant to consume, so what’s the main difference? It’s where they’re sourced from.

Spring Water

As you may have guessed, most bottled water is spring water. Spring water comes from an underground aquifer which is a large rock layer that deposits the water outward. Spring water has a natural filtration process through bedrock, which is why springs look clean and pure when it rises to the surface of the Earth. To source spring water in larger quantities, extraction is made from wells that reach the aquifer itself. Even though spring water is quite clear, it undergoes another process of filtration to remove any impurities.


When our customers choose to bottle spring water, they get beautiful, local water sourced from the Southern Highlands of NSW. Not only do the natural minerals in spring water mean that there are added health benefits, but they provide a pleasant taste too.

Filtered Water

The purpose of filtering is to remove pollutants and purify water. Because we want to provide the highest standard of quality, we use the Reverse Osmosis (RO) system at Custom Water to filter our bottled water. The process is a specific one – using pressure to force water through a membrane with tiny pores and eliminate any contaminations, chemicals and bacteria. The RO technology is much more effective than regular filtration due to its unique production of potable water.


Filtered water has long-term health benefits when compared to tap water. The RO system removes unpleasant tastes and odours from natural water as well, making it a popular choice for many of our clients.


Whether you choose spring water or filtered water from Custom Water, you’ll be filling your custom bottles with premium-tasting water that promotes health and hydration.
