With a background in both bio-medical and electrical engineering, owner and founder Mike Hernandez-Soria worked passionately to develop a system that fulfilled this simple yet powerful philosophy. In 2011, he successfully developed the proprietary Hi2O filtration system. This technology creates the ideal purification process, in which water is purified just before it’s dispensed, eliminating the need for plastic water jugs and bottles.
