Our water comes from the mountain behind us. The
Catchment tank is way up the hill to give us great pressure.
The water comes from an Underground spring approx
300m up the hill before being stored in a 9000 litre catchment tank 60m above us, which
gives us great pressure for all 3 of the chalets. It is then double filtered with first a 50
micron filter, then a 5 micron filter (shown here).
Calmag Ultra 79 UV Disinfectant system
Passed through UV Filter which naturally
disinfects the water. No chemicals are used in this process leaving beautiful natural
spring water. Tested rigorously, yearly, by the Local Council and deemed fit for human
The water will occasionally retain the colouring of the peat that it originally passed through, but will mostly run clear even after heavy rainfall.
Check out our page on Coffee for a run down of the benefits of using such lovely spring water in hot beverages.
