Activate appears to be a promising brand aside from their use of a
cheaper plastic bottle. Any water claiming to be of superior quality
should be contained in glass, crystal, or bone. I do respect their
simple label design, however; the bottle is covered and yet has a
clear window from which to visually inspect the contents. All looks
clear, so let us hope other senses continue to satisfy.
Activate states that nutrients deteriorate sitting in water, so they do not add any. In fact, they remove all nutrients and impurities through a deionization and reverse osmosis process. Although I am well
versed in the technical aspects of these mechanisms, the average reader need only be concerned with results. Unfortunately, after
smelling the water, it seems the results are sharp scents of stale bread and workout clothes.
I am of course quite disappointed; my hopes were high for a water with
such a well articulated mission statement. The taste followed through
with a similar letdown. A soft aftertaste of mildew with dabs of
rotting yeast. I must assume there is a series of flaws in the
manufacturers technical process.
The Water Connoisseur gives this bottle 2 Crystal Goblets out of 5.
This water is not recommended for human consumption. Alternate recommended uses include cooling down hand blown glasswares, circulating through a “urinating Cupid” water fountain, and concocting artificial sweat for cybernetic organisms.
