Antipodes water is sourced from an exceedingly deep aquifer of 150 to 300 metres. This depth creates a pressure that ensures any seepage is outward rather than inward, eliminating contamination. On top of this, the mean age for the water is 50 years old. It comes from surrounding hills that have never experienced commercial or industrial activity and continue to have exceedingly low population density.
- It is naturally low in dissolved solids and naturally high in silica content.
- Natural filtration is through a sub strata of ignimbrite.
- This is an inert sub strata.
- The depth of the aquifer ranges from 150-300 metres (490-985 feet).
- The bore is 328 metres deep (1077 feet).
- The mean residence age of the water is approximately 50 years.
- The area of recharge is the Rotoma Hills which have an historically low human population density of less than 1 person per square kilometre.
- Antipodes is bottled at source.
