The surface ocean layer is lit by the sun and life flourishes here and also consumes many nutrients. It is also contaminated by bacteria, viruses, pollution, and industrial waste.

From about 100 to 400 meters is the Thermocline, a temperature and pressure barrier between the surface layer and the deep ocean layer.

Beyond 500 meters is the Twilight Zone, without light there is no photosynthesis and no support of sea life, bacteria, or viruses. With virtually no involvement with the surface layer, Deep Ocean Water is nutrient-packed and untouched by contaminants, toxic waste, and the pollution of today’s industrial society.
