The water is generally pre treated with an oxidizer and then passed through our mass transfer tank which separates contaminates from the water to allow the filters to do a more efficient job in removing solids. Our mass transfer tank is developed by us and allows the use micron filtration technology by increasing the usable lifespan of the filters by up to 5 times.

What should I consider before buying a water treatment solution?

Here are some helpful considerations you may want to take into account before purchasing a water treatment system.

How hard is your water?

Having your water tested will help you determine your exact needs, even though you may already know you have one or more water problems. So do you have hard water? Find out with a FREE in-home water assessment.

Why do your water usage and pressure matter?

The peek amount of water consumed as well as your water pressure are factors when considering outfitting your home with a water treatment system. Household size may influence consumption, but different families all have different needs. Every factor should be considered, including family growth and guest visits.

Why should you avoid a quick fix?

Fixing your existing water problem is your primary goal, but do not settle for the cheapest, quickest solution. A higher-priced unit may serve your needs better by being more efficient, and reducing operating costs and maintenance time. Be sure, however, that you are getting your money’s worth. Before you buy, get a detailed estimate of equipment, installation and average operating costs.

Why should you buy from a reputable dealer?

A reputable water treatment equipment dealer is an excellent resource in helping you determine your water conditioning needs.

What questions should I ask when I have decided on a solution?

Choosing the water quality improvement system that is right for you and your family does not have to be a chore. Here are some things to take into consideration before purchasing a water treatment system.

Is installation included in the price?

Does installation include such things as a bypass for lawn and garden faucets, a faucet for unsoftened water and any other features you may want?

Does the unit have enough capacity to meet present and future needs?

Does the dealer you have selected have an established business in the area?

Does the dealer have customer references available?

For health-related problems, have you had your water analyzed by a reputable laboratory and/or your local health department?

Did the salesperson answer all questions regarding design, function and cost of the equipment?

Did the salesperson explain the method and cost of regenerating the system?

Does the dealer offer a maintenance contract or other after-sales services?

Does the equipment carry a specific written warranty?

Have you read and understood the warranty?

Are there harmful effects of water softener discharges on household septic tanks?

According to the Canadian Water Quality Association, water softener regeneration discharges do not pose a problem to septic systems or to the leach field. Studies have shown that water softener regeneration waste does not interfere with the septic tank system drain field soil percolation and can actually improve soil percolation, particularly in fine-textured soils.

Will softened water affect my lawn or garden?

For outside use on lawns or gardens, using softened water is wasteful. Where the concentration of hardness minerals is high, the sodium content after softening may be high enough to retard plant growth and harm grass. This is especially true in climates where rainfall is scarce. Areas that receive regular rain are not as sensitive to sodium accumulation because the rain “rinses” the earth.

What is Reverse Osmosis (RO)?

RO is the process by which water molecules are forced through a semi-permeable membrane under pressure. The membrane filters out any impurities smaller than one micron. Reverse osmosis systems filter water for a variety of applications, including homes, commercial sites such as restaurants and hotels, breweries, car washes, and even the space shuttle!

Household RO systems typically filter water using the following steps:

First, raw tap water flows through a sediment filter to remove dirt, rust and other solid objects.

The water then flows into a carbon filter which removes 98% of the chlorine and organic chemicals.

The next stop is the reverse osmosis membrane which separates up to 99% of the dissolved contaminants from the water molecules. These removed impurities are rinsed down the drain leaving behind only pure, clean water.

This water is stored in holding tanks, typically located underneath the sink, and is accessed through a faucet on your sink or ice dispenser in your refrigerator.

The final step pushes water through a carbon block “polishing filter” accessed through a special faucet on your sink or refrigerator dispenser before it reaches your glass.

Reverse osmosis removes more contaminants than other carbon, faucet or pitcher systems. RO systems can remove nitrates, sodium, and other dissolved inorganic and organic compounds that other systems can miss. Reverse Osmosis Systems puts clean, refreshing water right in your kitchen.

What are the differences between various kinds of bottled water?

Water that is classified as “bottled water” or “drinking water” is regulated by Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to maintain certain standards.

According to Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, for a product to be considered “bottled water,” it cannot contain sweeteners or chemical additives, and must be calorie-free and sugar-free. Flavors, extracts and essences – derived from spice or fruit – can be added to bottled water, but these additions must comprise less than one percent of the final product. Beverages containing more than the one percent of added flavor are classified as soft drinks, not bottled water.

 

The Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency defines the various water types as follows:

Artesian Water: Bottled water from a well that taps a confined aquifer (a water-bearing underground layer of rock or sand).

Mineral Water: Contains no less than 250 parts per million of total dissolved solids (minerals). No minerals can be added to this product.

Purified Water: Water labeled as “purified” can be derived from distillation, deionization or reverse osmosis.

Sparkling Water: Water that after treatment and possible replacement with carbon dioxide contains the same amount of carbon dioxide that it had at emergence from the source. (An important note: soda water, seltzer water and tonic water are not considered bottled waters. They are regulated separately and may contain sugar and calories. These types of waters are considered soft drinks.)

Spring Water: Bottled water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth.

About Water (7)

What is hard water?

Hard water is probably the most common water problem found in the home. Hard water spots your glasses and dishes, makes laundry dull, and causes soap scum and scale to build-up making cleaning a chore. The most common hardness-causing minerals are calcium and magnesium that are dissolved in a water supply.

According to the Canadian Water Quality Association, hard water is water that contains dissolved hardness minerals above 1 grain per gallon (GPG). Relative levels of hardness have been established and are as follows:

Soft Water – less than 1 GPG
Slightly Hard – 1 to 3.5 GPG
Moderately Hard – 3.5 to 7 GPG
Hard – 7 to 10.5 GPG
Very Hard – 10.5 and higher GPG

Using an ion exchange water softener is the most common form of treatment.

Why is iron a problem in my water?

Iron or rust in water can be found in five different forms. The two most common types are clear water iron and particle iron. These will cause staining in your tubs and sinks, in your laundry and can even damage your hair. The other three types are iron bacteria, organic iron and collodial iron. These will result in reddish stains and may cause water to have a sulfur (rotten egg) odor or tea-colored appearance.

Is RO water really as good as bottled?

Yes – Reverse Osmosis Systems remove about 97% of the total dissolved solids (TDS) from your water, including salt and sodium. Read the labels on bottled water and you will discover reverse osmosis is the same process used by most bottlers, so in effect you are really getting bottled water without the cost and hassle of the bottle!
