Where do we get it from?.

Our water is native to the Cabo de Gata Natural Park, – in Almeria (Spain), a privileged place and marine preserve, where the sea and desert converge in a symbiosis that makes it unique. The extraction zone is in the Alboran Sea (the western Mediterranean), a place where seven volcanoes are found, all of them active, constantly throwing magma (minerals) into their environment.

Precisely in this place, a current from the Atlantic Ocean coincides that causes the continuous renovation of the Mediterranean Sea known as upwelling effect, which facilitates the dissolution of minerals in the water. In this way we get our water richer of all the minerals, and especially richer in magnesium and calcium than any other seawater currently on the market (between 12% and 17%).

The exact point of extraction of Vizmaraqua is 1,300 meters (1,422 yards) from the coastline. At a depth of 38 meters (42 yards) and the suction mouth stands at 6 meters (7 yards) from the seabed.

pasos del filtrado

Suction

Extraction from the depths of the sea to our facilities where the water rests in a macro aljibe separated in canals.

First Filtering

By natural decanting the water rests for a few days so that it loses possible remains of sands and algae in suspension.

Second Filtering

Seawater is pumped through to the second cold filtered micro based on a battery of diatomaceous earth sieves.

Third Filtering

Injection in battery of cellulose filters, with different and decreasing porosity until finishing at 1 micron.

Transport

After the first filtering process, the seawater is transported in our tankers to the packing plant in Jaén.

Fourth Filtering

El agua pasa por una luz ultravioleta y por microfiltros de distinta porosidad.
