Water Quality Reports
Using Ozone to Produce
OUC uses an advanced ozone treatment process to produce its great-tasting tap water - proudly called H2OUC
Ozone offers several advantages. As a strong oxidant, ozone removes hydrogen sulfide (a naturally occurring compound that can create an unpleasant taste and odor) and leaves the water with a fresh taste and sparkling appearance. As a powerful disinfectant, ozone greatly reduces the amount of chlorine we have to add to the water, which improves the taste even more.
To prove that H2OUC is of exceptional quality, we compared our water-quality test results with those of four popular bottled brands. As we expected, OUC's water met or surpassed the bottled brands in virtually every aspect.
Most important of all, our customers are happier with their water, according to a survey conducted by an independent research firm. Of the respondents who said they noticed a change in the quality of OUC water, most (76 percent) cited improvements in taste.
