The source of pristine deep sea water
Destiny sources its 100% pure Hawaii deep sea water from NELHA (Natural Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority), which draws its water from depths of over 3000 feet in the pacific ocean just off the coast of Kona, located on the big Island of Hawaii. The source of this water lies in the icebergs near the coast of Greenland 2000 years ago. The cold temperature of this arctic area increases the density of the water, causing it to plunge to the depths of the sea.
This dense, mineral rich seawater travels deep along the Atlantic Continental Shelf of North America. It flows past the coasts of Australia and New Zealand and finally rises in the Northern Pacific Ocean near the Hawaiian Islands after a 2,000-year long journey. This under-sea stream is called The Great Global Conveyor.
Extraction and purification of nutrient rich deep-sea water
Destiny deep sea water is extracted from 3,000 feet below the surface. Once the nutrient rich water reaches our facility, it is processed using a state-of-the-art, purification system before bottling. Desalinization is the process used to remove salt from seawater, to ready it for human consumption.
Destiny deep-sea water uses a proprietary natural process that removes unwanted chemicals without relying solely on a harsh reverse osmosis system to desalinate the water. This allows all life-enhancing minerals and nutrients to remain intact in the water throughout the desalinization process and leaves the life enhancing minerals untouched in their natural form instead of adding them back in like many others do. The final result is water that is nutrient rich and flavorful, making Destiny deep sea water perfect for the human body, and for the palate.
Our sanitary standards mean pure, healthy water
The Destiny water purification process includes two filters: a primary filter (sand filter) and a secondary filter (check filter) before desalination occurs. Once water is cleaned and desalinized, it is adjusted for hardness, depending on customer preference. It is then sent through a third ultra-fine filter to kill germs before moving to a filling machine to be bottled, labeled, and packaged.
At Destiny deep sea water, customer health and satisfaction are our top priorities. This means that every part of the process is sanitary. Bottling takes place in a pristine environment that exceeds all FDA Standards.
The result: precious, life-enhancing water, uncontaminated, full of natural minerals and flavor—the perfect option to quench the thirst and compliment even the most discerning palate.
Ocean Water Temperature
Most of the solar radiation (light and heat) that penetrates the ocean is absorbed in the first twenty yards of water. Waves and turbulence mix this heat downward quickly. The surface layer of the ocean is mixed from the top to the bottom of that layer. The temperature of the surface waters varies with latitude. The polar seas can be as cold as -2 degrees Celsius (28.4 degrees Fahrenheit) while the Persian Gulf can be as warm as 36 degrees Celsius (96.8 degrees Fahrenheit). The normal temperature of the ocean surface waters is about 17 degrees Celsius (62.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
There is a boundary between surface waters of the ocean and deeper layers that are not mixed. The boundary begins about 100-400 yards and extends several hundred of yards downward from there. This boundary region, where there is a rapid decrease of temperature, is called the thermocline. Ninety percent of the total volume of ocean is found below the thermocline in the deep ocean. Here, temperatures approach freezing. So even though surface waters can be a comfortable 20 degrees Celsius, the majority of our ocean water has a temperature between 0-3 degrees Celsius (32-37.5 degrees Fahrenheit).
The density of ocean water continuously increases with decreasing temperature until the water freezes. Ocean water, with an average salinity of 35 psu, freezes at -1.94 degrees Celsius (28.5 degrees Fahrenheit). Near the polar latitudes, ocean water can reach these low temperatures and freeze. Dissolved salts in the water tend to be rejected by the forming ice so that sea ice is only about 1 % salt. An interesting tidbit for those of you interested in survival tactics – because of the lessened amount of salt, melted sea ice would be fit to drink even if sea water is not! Sea ice formation at high latitudes ultimately drives circulation of the deep waters of the ocean.
