What is evamor® water?
evamor® is an all-natural, highly alkaline artesian water with a pure, smooth, and refreshing taste. It comes from a single, rare and pristine artesian aquifer nearly a half mile deep in the Earth and has one of the highest known naturally occurring pH levels (8.8 - 9.1) of any artesian water on the market. We do not put any additives into the water to make it alkaline, and because evamor’s alkalinity is all-natural, it does not lose its pH value after opening. evamor is bottled at its source in the USA by a fifth-generation, family owned American company.
How is evamor® different from other bottled waters?
Naturally high alkalinity. While many other waters use additives, ionization or other methods to boost their pH and make them more alkaline, evamor water has naturally occurring high alkalinity – so we don’t have to add anything.
Consistently smooth, pristine taste. The unique mineral composition in our aquifer, including bicarbonates and electrolytes, gives evamor its pristine taste naturally. And because evamor comes from only one source, it delivers that same smooth taste every time.
Single source. Unlike many waters, we have a single source – a rare, protected artesian aquifer nearly half a mile deep in the Earth. We bottle the water at its source.
Top quality grades. Our state-of-the-art bottling facility, situated directly above the aquifer, consistently receives top quality grades from BRC (Global Food Safety Standards) and IBWA (International Bottled Water Association).

What is the source of evamor® water?
There is only one source for evamor, and it is located nearly a half mile down into the Earth, in a naturally alkaline artesian aquifer protected by tons of impenetrable shale rock. It’s directly underneath our bottling facility in Covington, Louisiana, USA. evamor® water started out thousands of years ago as rain and snow in the western Appalachian Mountains. It traveled hundreds of miles over thousands of years through impenetrable rock to the protected artesian aquifer where we capture and bottle it. evamor never mixes with surface waters, contaminants, or pollutants, and because our manufacturing facility is situated right on top of the aquifer, the water never meets air until you open a bottle to take a sip.
Do you add anything to evamor® water?
No, evamor water is completely natural. It has a naturally high pH, meaning that the alkalinity of evamor water is naturally occurring, with no additives needed. A sealed system captures the water as it flows upward from the artesian aquifer, filters it for sediment, ozonates it (ozone is a form of oxygen) and bottles it.
How is evamor® water filtered?
evamor water is naturally so right, we don’t do anything to mess it up. Our state-of-the-art bottling plant is a pressure equalized, HEPA filtered environment, situated directly on top of the aquifer. We simply filter the water through UV and micron filters to remove sediments before bottling. As an added precaution, we add a tiny blast of pure ozone (oxygen) right before capping.
Where is evamor® water bottled?
We bottle evamor water right at its source, in our state-of-the-art facility built directly above our protected artesian aquifer, which is nearly half a mile underground in Covington, Louisiana, USA.
A sealed system captures the water as it flows upward and filters it for sediment, ozonates it (ozone is a type of oxygen) and places it directly into high-grade, PET1 (BPA-free) bottles. When a bottle of evamor is opened, it is the very first time that the water is ever exposed to air or human contact.
Are evamor® water bottles recyclable?
Yes! evamor® water bottles are all high-grade PET-1, which means they are easily recyclable at any recycling facility. We use highly recyclable PET1 plastic that is BPA-free and phthalate-free and can be recycled into fibers for carpet, baseball caps, backpacks, and clothing. Since plastic is lighter in weight than glass, it also uses less fuel to transport. We continually evaluate innovations in product materials and design to reduce plastic waste.
Does evamor® water have health benefits?
Due to FDA regulations, we cannot officially claim any health benefits, so it’s up to the individual to give evamor water a try. Passionate customers tell us their personal stories about their experiences with evamor, and how they feel it has aided in soothing acid reflux, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Fitness fans tell us that smooth-tasting evamor contributes to better hydration, faster workout recovery, and improved exercise performance. Fans also maintain the overall health benefits of drinking evamor as part of an alkaline diet to support general wellness.
What is the best way to test the alkalinity (pH) of evamor® water?
evamor water’s naturally occurring pH fluctuates between 8.8 and 9.1, so the lowest pH measurement is printed on the label. Because of the low ionic strength of evamor water, normal pH test paper strips will not work to test its pH. You must use low ionic strength pH test paper strips such as those offered by Micro Essential Labs. Or, for best accuracy, use a calibrated pH meter. The water drawn from our aquifer is pH tested hourly during production and continuously monitored. Further, evamor’s pH is confirmed quarterly by a third-party laboratory. You can view our published water quality reports here.
What is pH?
The pH of a substance indicates its acidity or alkalinity and is measured on a scale of 0 to 14. Food and beverages (including waters) between 0 and 6 are considered acidic, at 7 are neutral, and between 8 and 14 are alkaline. The pH scale is considered to be exponential, meaning that a pH of 7.1 is considered to be ten times (10x) more alkaline than a pH of 7.0. Therefore, evamor® water’s naturally high pH of 8.8 - 9.1 is 180x to 210x more alkaline than water with a neutral pH of 7.0 – or 80x more alkaline than water with pH of 8.0.
What makes evamor® water highly alkaline and what is the pH level?
evamor water is one of the few waters on the market that is naturally high alkaline with no need for additives. Over thousands of years, exposure to the mineral deposits in the protected artesian aquifer have given our water its naturally high alkalinity and its wonderfully smooth taste. The pH level of evamor water ranges naturally from 8.8-9.1.
