THE SPRING

Water Drilling

The water factory’s spring is located in the foothills of White Mountains at an altitude of 85 meters, while the aquifer of the drilling is 150-180 meters underground and the water is pumped from 50 meters.
Hydro-geological studies have shown that the aquifer is surrounded by limestone formations that do not allow water movement through their mass, therefore it is protected from surface water and hence from potential pollution.

On the basis of official analyses that have been conducted since the beginning of the Company’s operation, the consistently low values of NO2 and NO3 show that the aquifer is unaffected by human intervention. The sodium content of the water is low, thus our product could be considered suitable for a low sodium diet.

Chemical Analysis

ETANAP conducts continuous and accurate quality controls ensuring a perfectly stable quality and of high standards product.
