About Our Water

Recently, more people have been asking about the water that we serve (and drink ourselves!) at the Tanglewood Wellness Center.

Tanglewood prides itself on offering the highest quality water possible for your fast. While we got great results for many years using reverse osmosis water, we now have the very best water possible: nature’s own nearly-perfect spring water.

Since we moved to our current site in March of 2013, we have been offering our guests the perfect water right from our own site. As often happens here, a natural spring was drilled to create a well to ensure ample year-round water and even in the height of the dry season months after the last rain when many other water sources have dried up, we enjoy an abundance of perfect water.

And because natural conditions can change and your health and safety is of paramount importance to us, every 3-4 months we send our water to one of San Jose, Costa Rica’s most well-respected laboratories using their specific protocol to ensure that it’s still as optimal as ever.

We take a sample early in the morning and put it directly from our tap into a sterile sample cup, purchased from the pharmacy. It goes into a cooler full of ice and is immediately carried to a 6:30 am bus heading to San Jose so that the lab can receive and test the water the same day.

The results so far have always been fantastic, with pH between 6.75 and 7.25, and dissolved solids, coliform bacteria, and toxic contaminants all on the very low end of the acceptable range.

And you needn’t believe me or anyone else.

Here you will find the latest reports from the lab, in their entirety, and we will be adding each new report as we have the water tested.

Cleanse, Heal, and Renew… today!
