Inside the Atla Water System
Since 2006 we have perfected the technologies used to create Atla Water. The goal wasn't just perfect water, but perfect water on tap. Turn the faucet on and Atla Water flows continuously at one gallon per minute. Nothing else comes close. No cumbersome countertop machines. No electricity. No waste water. No bottled water expense. No hassle.
If you've been using other brands, you're going to love Atla.
Water cascading down a mountain stream flows in eddies and over rocks, forming vortexes. This type of flow improves the mouthfeel of water. It’s something you can actually taste.
In nature, this type of flow occurs continuously due to the irregularity of the surfaces that water flows around. In bottled water facilities and in our homes, it simply never happens. In fact, we discovered even the best water degrades when pumped through common pipes.
We also observed that recently vortexed water tasted better if it was allowed time to rest before drinking. Ultimately, the best tasting water was created when we vortexed water, allowed it to rest, and then vortexed it again before drinking. This came as no surprise as water in nature is constantly subject to cycles of vortexing and resting.
Revitalizer™ technology was developed to reproduce the way water flows in nature and in the convenience of your own home. It’s the reason why Atla Water tastes better than any other filtered water and even premium bottled waters costing upwards of $8.00 USD per liter. For comparison, Atla Water costs just $0.03 USD per liter or at most $0.31 USD per day, depending on how much water is used annually.
In the Atla System, water flows through multiple stages of what we call primary and secondary vortexes. These are specially tuned vortex variants that power our process. Two gallons of this water fill the system. When you turn on the faucet, water flows through multiple stages of vortexes again before reaching your glass. Many customers proclaim Atla to be the lightest and most refreshing water they’ve ever tried.
Minerals play large role in biology so it is no surprise they are a prerequisite to perfect water. The body needs a constant supply of alkaline minerals to replenish its acid-buffering reserves. Additionally, if water doesn't have enough minerals when it is consumed, the water itself will steal minerals from the body.
The Atla Water System uses ActivMag™ technology to ensure the water you drink has a proper, naturally alkaline pH through the addition of trace amounts of magnesium. The magnesium used in ActivMag™ is pre-oxidized (bound to oxygen) in order to create a self-regulating pH system. Because the magnesium is oxidized, it is not readily available to dissolve in water. It first needs to react with the naturally occurring H+ ions in the water. The more H+ in the source water, the more acidic that water is. When the H+ ions interact with the magnesium, it frees the magnesium from the oxygen and allows it to dissolve, increasing the water's alkalinity. The Atla Water System is engineered to create a naturally alkaline pH and is completely self-regulating. No need to electrolyze your water or waste as much water as you drink, as is the case with water ionizers.

The average amount of magnesium added per liter is only 10mg. That equates to only 2% of the recommended daily intake of magnesium. Drinking even four liters of Atla Water per day amounts to only 8% of the recommended intake. As most people are magnesium deficient, it is recommended that you do not discontinue any magnesium supplementation (vitamins) you may already be taking.
In addition to slightly increasing the pH, a small amount of the magnesium reacts with water to produce molecular hydrogen, H2. The hydrogen is then consumed in a process that improves Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP). ActivMag™ technology is the next best thing to water flowing down mineral deposits in a mountain stream.
The magnesium used in ActivMag™ is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 60 for purity and safety.
Activ8™ Purification Technology
Atla's unique purification process preserves the beneficial minerals in water.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems are great at removing impurities, but they also remove the beneficial minerals. In fact, they remove 92-99% of beneficial calcium and magnesium. But it gets even worse. Because RO water doesn't have enough minerals, when it is consumed, it also leaches minerals from your body. This means that the minerals from the food and vitamins you take are being urinated away. Less minerals being consumed plus more minerals being excreted? Double trouble.
The Atla Water System utilizes Activ8™ purification technology to remove the bad stuff while ensuring you receive all the vital minerals and trace minerals healthful water should have.
