Blue Can Premium Water Commonly Asked Questions

How do you determine your 50 year shelf life?
Blue Can offers a 50 year shelf life guarantee for its pure water products based on state-of-the-art manufacturing processes that exceed standard FDA regulations and bottled water industry standards.

 

FDA has established specific regulations for bottled water in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR)...

http://www.fda.gov/Food/FoodborneillnessContaminants/BuyStoreServeSafeFood/ucm077079.htm

The International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) further adds:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which regulates the quality and safety of bottled water, has neither set nor suggested any limitation to the shelf life of bottled water. In that regard, the International Bottled Water Association's general position is that as long as water is packaged in accordance with FDA processing and good manufacturing practices, 21 CFR, Part 129, and meets the FDA quality standard provisions as outlined in 21 CFR, Part 165, the product's shelf life should remain intact for an indefinite period provided that product storage is as recommended by the manufacturer.
 

Blue Can filters and purifies our canned water to less than one part per million of dissolved solids.  During the canning process, each can of water is “patent pending” pressurized, removing all oxygen before hermetically sealing for long-term storage.  This gives Blue Can products the unique advantage of protection from UV light and all other possible contaminates, making the expiration of the pure water inside a Blue Can proportional to the shelf life of the aluminum container itself.  Unlike tin and steel, aluminum cans do not rust.  Therefore, Blue Can offers a 50 Year Shelf Life for its pure water products based on state-of-the-art manufacturing processes that exceed standard FDA regulations and bottled water industry standards.

What temperature do you recommend storing Blue Can?
Temperature fluctuations do not change the quality of our water.  It's recommended water be stored between 33 degrees and no higher than 145 degrees for best results. 
What are the specifications or standards for the canned water?
Blue Can water is purified, sterilized and disinfected to remove any chemicals or particles using a 12 step mulit-stage process. This process includes using active-charcoal filters, dual reserve osmosis high pressure, six stage micron traps, two sterilizers, a high intensity UV light, active PH balance, ozoned with state-of-the-art technology and preserved under pressure with nitrogen gas and water structuring unit to create smaller clusters for better cell absorption by the consumer.
Is the water deionized? 
BCW has an ORP of approx. 430, according to the FDA Certified Lab. Deionization is not required.  BCW already has less than 3ppm of dissolved solids. 
What is the can liner made of? 
In accordance with the FDA requirements, Blue Can Water cans have an epoxy coating on the inside to protect the contents from the metal. (Aged water in the can has been tested BPA-Free by an FDA certified lab)
Blue Can Pure Water is always at a neutral PH to prevent any decay of the epoxy coating inside the containers.
Is radiological testing conducted on the source water at least every 4 years? 
Radiological testing is done EVERY YEAR and no Radiological residue has been detected. Water analysis reports are performed by third party laboratories using procedures established by EPA, AOAC, APHA, AWW and WPCF.  Extensive testing was conducted by an independent analytical NELAP Accredited Laboratory  (Weck Laboratories Inc. ISO 17025, ELAP #1132, LACSD #10143, NELAC #04229CA) who certified that the test results meet all requirements of NELAC.  According to the certified lab report, BCW meets all drinking water standards as established by the State of California Department of Health Services.  Certificate of Analysis is available HERE.
Additionally, do you provide have a guaranteed label or agreement on the shelf-life of the canned water?

What makes Blue Can Water so different?
First it's in a can not a plastic bottle and the state of the art filtering process we use to purify the water makes it taste clean and fresh for decades.
How long will the water last in the can?
50 Years if stored properly.
Does the water taste metallic?
NO, there is an epoxy coating inside and outside of the can to protect the water from the aluminum.
Is the water BPA Free?
YES, Lab Certified. BPA Free Water, tested in the can.

Can I leave the cans in my garage during hot weather?
Yes, heat changes do not affect the water inside.
