Premium Bottled & Bulk Spring Water
In June 2005, Eric de Jong, a San Diego North County resident, purchased Palomar Mountain Spring Water and its distribution facility. Eric is part of the De Jong Family that has strong ties in the community ever since they emigrated from the Netherlands in 1949.
Eric has made efficiency improvements and expanded the suite of waters. However, he did not change the bottling process, which has continued to be the success of Palomar Mountain Spring Water. Our product line now includes spring, drinking, purified, sparkling and distilled waters.
Today Palomar Mountain Premium Spring Water is delivered to homes and offices throughout San Diego County. Our fine waters are available at the Palomar bottling facility and selected convenience stores. Palomar Mountain Spring Water offers a variety of dispensing equipment to meet every residential and commercial need.
Choosing Palomar Mountain Premium Spring Water as your preferred fine bottled spring water is a smart and healthy choice for many reasons. Contrary to tap water, our pure bottled spring water is free of contaminants, microorganisms and bacteria and is therefore much healthier than tap water.

Palomar Mountain Premium Spring Water Captures Prestigious International Bottled Water Award
Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting - Produced by Travel Berkeley Springs
February 28, 2012; For Immediate Release
In what is billed as the “Academy Awards of Water,” Palomar Mountain Premium Spring Water captured a coveted award as one of the best-bottled waters in the world at the 22nd annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting held in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia on February 25, 2012. The competition featured water from across the country and around the globe.
Palomar tied for fifth place in the highly competitive bottled water category, vying against waters from Argentina, Belgium, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Japan, Korea and New Zealand as well as several U.S. companies. A total of 30 bottled waters were tasted and rated by 11 media judges while more than 150 spectators watched.
In addition to bottled water, categories included sparkling water, purified water and tap water. Judges were instructed to look, sniff and taste each water under guidelines similar to those in a wine tasting. The waters were rated for such attributes as appearance, clean taste, light mouthfeel and aftertaste; i.e., leaving the drinker thirsty for more. Waters were tasted in four separate flights over two days.
Palomar owner Eric de Jong states, “We are proud and excited to win this international award, which validates what our customers have long known: that our premium spring water is ‘purely’ the best! None of the five ‘best tasting tap waters’ were located in San Diego County, making accessibility to healthful, pure and natural bottled water very important. We are pleased to contribute to the quality of life in the area.”
Established in 1985, Palomar Mountain Premium Spring Water is sourced from free-flowing springs located atop Palomar Mountain; high above the smog level and untainted by man-made extraction equipment, contaminants or additives. The naturally balanced and deliciously refreshing water is delivered to homes and businesses throughout the region and available in individual bottles in fine restaurants.

Our spring water is sourced from free-flowing springs located high atop Palomar Mountain in San Diego County, Southern California.
Palomar Mountain Spring Water was originally founded in 1985 by a group of residents of Palomar Mountain. Current owner Eric de Jong bought the company in 2005.
Our source is protected from potential contamination that industry and traffic generate because it is located high atop of Palomar Mountain, above smog levels and untainted by man-made extraction equipment, contaminants or additives. Our 100% pure spring water contains no additives. We collect our water straight from the spring and transport it directly to our bottling facility in stainless steel water tankers. There, it is filtered to remove possible microorganisms and passed through high-intensity Ultra Violet light to destroy any bacteria. The result is high quality, pure, clean and healthy bottled water.
Most certainly! The bottled water industry is regulated on three levels: federal, state and, for members of IBWA, at the industry level.
FDA regulations, coupled with state and industry standards, offer consumers assurance that the bottled water they purchase is stringently regulated and tested, and is of the highest quality. IBWA has been a long-standing proponent of sensible regulations for bottled water that help to further ensure safety and protect consumers. IBWA is active at all levels of local, state and federal government, assisting in the development of such regulations, where they help enhance public safety and product quality.
By visiting the spring for yourself! You can taste our water on the spot and judge yourself.
We can also guarantee that Palomar Mountain Premium Spring Water positively passes all tests, both by authorities and ourselves. Palomar Water complies with all of the requirements of California Proposition 65, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), and the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA). We even exceed these requirements by testing multiple random samples in our on-site laboratory every day to ensure that our spring water is free from contamination. The National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) and the International Bottled Water Association both independently evaluated the quality system of Palomar Spring Water and awarded it with identical scores of 96%.
Palomar spring water is also awarded spring water. When we entered our water in 2012, the annual Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting awarded our bottled water as “one of the best-bottled waters in the World.”
In more ways than we can list here. The most important differences are that tap water originates from surface water like wells, lakes and rivers and of late, toilet water; so this water always contains contaminants that have to be removed. The water subsequently has to be treated with chemicals like for example chlorine to make it suitable for drinking.
Our spring water stems from deep under the surface and has been naturally filtered by the earth. Our spring water does not contain any contaminants and is not treated with additives. We bring this naturally clean water straight from our source to our bottling facility. The result is well balanced, fresh-tasting, pure drinking water that tastes so much better than tap water.
Bottled water is regulated as a packaged food product and must, therefore, adhere to FDA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs).
Today’s tap water has many people concerned. On a regular basis, tap water appears in the news because of contamination (Boil Watert Alerts) or – of late – the ‘Toilet To Tap’ process. Palomar Mountain Spring Water is guaranteed contaminant and additive-free. We collect our water straight from the spring and transport it directly to our bottling facility in stainless steel water tankers. There, it is filtered to remove possible microorganisms and passed through high-intensity Ultra Violet light to destroy any bacteria. The result is high quality, pure, clean and healthy bottled water. That makes out bottled water 100% safe and healthy, which does not always apply to tap water.
Long term, excessive exposure to chlorine and fluoride, found in many municipal sources, has been linked to certain types of cancer and damage to teeth. Municipal water quality and safety is a source of increasing concern to the public. Source: Iowa State University, PM 1813 (March 2000).

Man can live without food for more than a month but no longer than a week without water.
Our bodies consist of almost 2/3 water, but we are not able to store water in our bodies. We must, therefore, replenish regularly. To maintain health, we need a minimum of 2 ½ quarts of water per day, but more is better. We need water to regulate and manage our bodies. If we do not properly hydrate our bodies, we will run into problems with our health, practicing physical exercise, endurance and concentration.
Drinking lots of water during the day will affect our health in many positive ways. Water is good for our hair and skin and it will support our efforts to lose weight. Our body needs water to transport minerals, vitamins and nutrients, but also to transport antibodies when we are sick or to inflamed body parts. Drinking enough water will help our bodies to dispose of waste.
Water is also the best ingredient of a weight loss program: water helps to keep full and flush toxins from the body when dieting.
We do not only need water to survive but also, water helps prevent health problems. For example:
- Drinking 2 glasses of water in the morning helps activate the internal organs.
- Drinking one glass of water before a meal will help your digestion.
- Drinking one glass of water before taking a shower helps prevent high blood pressure.
- Drinking a glass of water before bed helps prevent strokes or heart attacks.

Bottled water in America predates the country’s independence, with records of water bottled and sold from Jackson’s Spa in Boston in 1767. The bottled water industry really took off at the beginning of the nineteenth century when new glass technologies made the cost of a bottle affordable and practical for mass production and consumption. By 1856, over 7 million bottles were being produced annually at Saratoga Springs, one of the most popular early bottled water sources, and selling for up to $1.75 per pint. Bottled water went out of style and need in the early twentieth century when the advent of chlorination in municipal drinking water supplies made public water consistently healthy and safe to drink. In 1977, Perrier launched a $5 million marketing campaign in the United States for its imported water, and bottled water made a come-back. Perrier’s marketing and timing were perfect, as it took advantage of “concerns about pollution and poor-quality tap water.
