2,400 miles from the nearest industrial landmass and surrounded by 10 million square miles of ocean, Waiākea volcanic water originates in Hawaii through both snowmelt and rain on the pristine snowcapped peak of the active Mauna Loa volcano- one of the purest environments on Earth. Waiākea is then naturally filtered through 14,000 feet of porous lava rock, which enhances it with a unique combination minerals and trace elements.
Waiākea's source is located at the eastern base of the Mauna Loa volcano in an isolated area surrounded by rich and bio-diverse forest preserves. The Kea’au aquifer that Waiākea taps into is regarded as one of the most sustainable fresh water resources in the world, with a daily recharge rate of 1.4 billion gallons/day. Waiākea uses 33% renewable energy, 25% of which is geothermal, for all sourcing, as sustainable practices and a sustainable source are essential to preserving Hawaii's ecosystem.
Waiākea’s source is constantly flowing and takes less than 30 days to arrive from where it originates on Mauna Loa. This gives Waiākea a superior rating in virginality, and a soft and neutral taste with a hint of sweet.
