Drinking Spring Water


One of my favourite places is Te Puna Wai Ora (spring of life) in Jackson Street Petone (Holland Road Yarn is just diagonally opposite Oh NO!!! How are we ever not going to resist popping in?)

It really is an amazing place to collect your water from and there is always a queue of people waiting to fill their bottles. It has an amazing atmosphere and everyone is always so friendly - I suppose we all have a common interest - wanting clean fresh water.

I'm a huge fan of pure, non fluoridated water

One awesome website - Find a Spring  will help you locate spring water all over the world

Have you a spring near where you live that you too can collect fresh water?

  1. Another place for me to visit if I ever get back down to Wellington!! We have a spring up in the hills that travels down towards 'our' river which we use for house and farm water - very nice.

  2. we have fantastic springs here in Glastonbury, which come from under the Tor, one is called the white spring. Nearby, the red spring, rich in iron oxides, emerges in the chalice well gardens. They are always a constant temp and never dry up. Anyone can collect water from them and they are regularly tested for quality and safety.

  5. As a kid my family would go to a nearby mountain and collect water. It came right out of the rock. It even smelled wonderful and pure.

  6. I consider myself fortunate that my drinking water comes form one of the purest and unfiltered lake water in the Country. The city of Portland & some surrounding communities are supplied drinking water that originated at about 4,300 ft up in the forests of the Cascade Mountains at Bull Run Lake. The lake water is fed by multiple springs and travels through a series of aquifers until it reaches 2 large reservoirs. Bull Run Lake, lies in the shadow of Mt. Hood high in the Cascade Mountain range. The lake is surrounded by 500 yr old growth timber forests of Douglas fir and snow covers the ground most of the year. The water is always crisp, cold, clear & without any chemical smell or taste. No Brita filter needed here.
    Leanne, what is the source of New Zealanders' water? It's nice that you have someplace to get some free unadulterated water

  7. Hi Leanne, I love your spring. We've been to it a couple of times. I just had some more fresh turmeric sent from the lovely man at The Spice Rack (Petone) today. Fresh is so amazing! (Just as an aside) We have the most amazing underground aquifer here in Hawke's Bay but eek, unfortunately they add fluoride to it, so we take our large containers & a special key & fill up from a tap outside the library. The water tastes so good...we then fill up a large glass dispenser that we leave on the kitchen bench. That way we know that our kombucha & water kefir are happy & so are we. Much love Catherine x0x0x
