The water’s not orange

H20range is just plain clear still bottled water that tastes slightly sweet, along the lines of Ty Nant or Evian. It’s bottled in Texas, and I think it’s the activated carbon listed on the label that accounts for the impression of sweetness.

H20range has been a popular purchase for friends visiting Austin, and the unusual bottle makes a wonderful souvenir. According to the H20range Web site, manufacturing this bottle was indeed a challenge: “Molding a Tower-shaped bottle that could withstand the pressures of filling, stacking, and transportation was challenging; and several modifications had to be made.” These bottles are very finely detailed and very true in proportions.

On the water’s site, the source is described as follows: “H20range is “Texas Purified” to achieve optimum purity and taste. Texas rainwater collects in three Texas rivers – the Atascosa, Nueces and Frio – which flow into Choke Canyon Reservoir and Lake Corpus Christi. The Corpus Christi Municipal Water District purifies that water to exacting EPA standards, then the Oneta Bottling Company further purifies H20range, using a combination of activated carbon, ozone, ion exchange, reverse osmosis, and deionization.”

A purchase of H20range contributes to academic scholarships, we’re told. H20range is not an exotic product; as the locator shows (enter “Austin”), it’s to be found around town everywhere.
