Water from spring Romih 2/90 was observed and analysed for many years by the authorized institutes such as Institute for public health Maribor and Institute for public health Kranj. The results confirmed that the water from spring Romih 2/90 meets all the criteria, determined by the valid Rules on natural mineral water and spring water (Ur.l. RS No.:50/2004, 75/2005, 45/2008), needed to obtain the title of spring water.
The same was also confirmed in December of 2010 by the Department of geology, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Engineering, University of Ljubljana, after their revision of all the previous observations and analysis.
Juliana is sprig water, pumped from the Romih 2/90 basin in Tržič. The composition of Juliana was analysed by Institute for public health Maribor on 02.07.2009.
The results of analysis showed the following composition: Calcium (Ca2+) 53 mg/l, Magnesium (Mg2+) 17 mg/l, Sodium (Na+) 7,8 mg/l, Potassium (K+) 1,4 mg/l, Sulphate (SO42-) 29 mg/l, Chloride (Cl-) 13 mg/l, Hydrogen carbonate (HCO3-) 210 mg/l, total dissolved solids 270 mg/l, pH level 7,6.
Company VODA JULIANA d.o.o. has a contract with the Institute for public health Kranj to implement regular tests and analysis of spring water Juliana in accordance with the Rules on natural mineral water and spring water (Ur.l. RS No.:50/2004, 75/2005, 45/2008)
The company uses a sophisticated system of control HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point).
The water is pumped from the spring with a submersible pump and flows through the water pipes directly into the bottling room. Together with the basin and the bottling machine this represents a continuous and uniform system. The water transport system operates under the constant pressure of 4 to 5 bars. The whole system allows flawless and sterile flow of Juliana from the spring to the bottling room. This is confirmed by the analysis of the water at the spring and the bottled water which are identical.
Due to the exceptional quality of Juliana spring water and its microbiological safety the bottling technology is designed in such a way that only mechanical filtration occurs before the water enters the bottling machine. Juliana is bottled in various kinds of containers without any kind of storage in reservoirs, chemical cleaning, disinfection or additives. The PET plastic bottles are hosed and disinfected prior to bottling. Control is achieved by suitable machines, which constantly monitor certain parameters in water, and the analysis of samples done regularly by the contractor, Institute for public health Kranj. The sterility of the bottling room and the machines is also monitored regularly.
The high quality of the water by the spring and suitable systems of gathering, transporting and bottling of water guarantee that the water in bottles is the same as the one form the spring. The same properties of water and the technological procedures also guarantee the stability of water in the bottles. We have been storing several sample bottles of Juliana for a few years and so far tests have not shown any significant quality changes. Tests and analysis, done on 03.11.2010 by the contractor, Institute for public health Kranj, on samples taken form 1.5 L plastic bottles of Juliana showed the same results. The samples were also in accordance with the valid Rules on natural mineral water and spring water (Ur.l. RS No.:50/2004, 75/2005, 45/2008).
On the basis of these findings the expiration date of the water in plastic and glass bottles was determined to be 12 to 16 months form the date of bottling. The bottled water can therefore be transported, stored and used under all normal circumstances.
