Why Did John Thompson Start Designer Water?

After hearing Tony Robbins speak about the benefits of alkaline water in 2010, Thompson realised that this product could be beneficial to his own health. Having faced four years of constant illness, sky-high medical bills, and innumerable courses of antibiotics, Thompson took a leap of faith and tried alkaline, hydrogen rich water – and the results astonished him.

With this positive impact on his own quality of life, Designer Water was established. The business met Thompson’s desire to create his own path to financial freedom, while making a marked impact on the communities around him. The result? A thriving business that promotes wellness, while educating the world about healthier choices.

Success By Design: Designer Water “Embodies Alkaline Water Benefits”, Experts Say


CENTURION, SOUTH AFRICA, May 7th, 2018 – While high PH alkaline water has long been regarded as a “miracle of nature” by those well-versed in holistic medicine, it’s been only recently that it’s become the subject of extensive scientific research. One prime example that is packed with “vitamins, bioavailable minerals, antioxidants, and incredible healing properties” is Designer Water, the high alkaline pH bottled water produced using the best available filtering methods in Centurion, South Africa.

“Water is the essence of life – but I dare say that this phrase should be more specific. High pH alkaline water is what provides the full spectrum of water’s life-enhancing qualities. Our micro-clustering technology ensures that each and every bottle we produce contains the highest quality high pH alkaline water, meaning its nutritional profile and amazing properties remain intact” said Mr. John Thompson, Founder and Managing Director, Designer Water.

High pH alkaline water benefits have not gone unnoticed by celebrities, either. Mark Wahlberg, Hollywood’s highest paid actor, sat down with Mr. Thompson in December 2017 to discuss how alkaline water changed his life, and how he decided to make selling it one of his many business ventures.

However, Mr. Thompson was quick to note that high pH alkaline water’s popularity has transcended the realm of exclusivity, seeing as people of all walks of life have come to embrace it as an inextricable part of their lifestyle.

“We’ve received emails and video testimonials from people from all around the world who rave about the transformative ways with which high pH alkaline water has improved their health and overall wellbeing. Whether they were looking to increase their mental clarity and focus or address the symptoms of various health conditions impacting their quality of life, our customers have stated, time and again, that they will be consuming Designer Water for life.”

In addition to bottled high pH alkaline water, Designer Water further offers alkaline water products, alkaline water machines and water ionizers through its e-Shop.
