    Has anyone had this water tested? This spring is approx 30 minutes from my house & I have filled water containers a few times from here.

    Does anyone know anything about the artesian springs in Prattville, al, such as the one on Doster Road?

  4. Brian says:

    Check out Ponce De Leon Springs for the next closest Spring.
    Lots of info and videos on it.
    You can swim in Ponce Pond.
    68 degrees year-round.
    If you want drinking water, just wait till everyone is out of Pond for a half hour, and you can submerge your Jug. Or just be the first ones there in the morning.

    Does anyone know how long the water is good for after bottled??

    • Ashley Knight says:

      My family stocks up on spring water with a monthly visit if that helps 🙂 As long as you have decent containers (preferable glass) then the water will stay good without being altered by the container.

      Hi, Natalie—

      From what I’ve heard, water doesn’t go bad. It still usually the container (e.g., plastic bottles) that breaks down and contaminated water.

  6. Chuck says:

    This is a natural artisan spring. It comes from under ground water table and is forced up by pressure coming close to the ground. Have them in certain areas across the U.S. This is just one open to the public. Have them in Mobile too but on private land. It stays the same as long as you have it in a container.

    This water tastes great. Not super high in minerals but not lacking either. Better and more fresh than any bottled water I’ve had.

    Really easy to see from the road with a nice paved parking area. I will be getting my water here from now on.

    Great water! For those interested, there is a small local bottler of spring water just a few miles north. Used to be Mineola, just reopened under Millennium Springs Water. Delivery is available…call for information 251-862-2960

    Unable to read the above history of Red Hill Spring on my server. Where else could I find a history of it?

  10. NAV says:

    Just took road trip down here to try it out. Nice and clean parking space with ample room and not a whole lot of traffic. Water flows really fast so filling up large bottles is quick and easy. Not sure when it was tested but it taste pretty good, had a mineral aftertaste. Would be back again, doesn’t dissapoint!

    So I visited the spring this afternoon, the water is clean and perfect, it is alkaline judging by the very and lightning taste that it gives off rather as opposed to the acidic dark flat flavors that come from some other water, I would estimate this water is about a 6.5 up to the high 7.5 ph level. WATER FLOW IS FAST – 5 gal in 24 seconds, 1 gal in 6 secs

    I will come back for many more trips from New Orleans with many more jugs

    VERY CLEAN – IS TRUSTWORTHY

    Went to Red Hill springs today the water was great tasting and cold …biting gnats are waking up

  13. Dan Kirkpatrick says:

    Very good tasting water, clean, no sediment, easy access, real fast flow through the pipe makes filling containers easy.good parking.
