To learn about all the stages that bottled water is held before: as the fall in our home or office, we went to the neighboring republic - on for drinking water production plant "Sister."
So today, in a program where water is extracted as it is poured into bottles and focus "How are plastic bottles."
Artesian water is extracted from a depth of 120 meters in a protected natural area Arbanskoe intake and plastic piping enters the plant. The source itself, we did not show, t. To.

The final rinse water treated with ultraviolet light. After each stage, the filtered air blowing bottles.
After each stage, - required rinsing the bottles with water, treated with ultraviolet light. Next, - disinfecting agent based on hydrogen peroxide. The concentration of detergent and disinfectant is automatically maintained.
All around clean and tidy, so all were given caps, shoe covers and capes:
