City Water:

 Typical City Water Installation

(more than a de-chlorinator)


  • Single fibreglass tank containing GAC (granulated activated carbon).
  • We use Calgon GAC with an underbed of gravel.
  • Automatic backwashing filter control valve prevents build up of bacteria and sediment in the filter and avoids compaction of media.
  • Optional commercial control for large and/or two- storied homes.


  • Elimination of chlorine, chlorine byproducts (THMs).
  • Elimination of pesticides, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and other organic contaminants found in river water.
  • Astounding improvements to hair, skin especially persons with eczema and psoriasis.
  • Substantial savings by eliminating damage to rubber seals in faucets, dishwashers, reverse osmosis units, water softeners and grey plastic pipe (PolyB, Polybutylene).
    Did you know?                                                                                                                  
    In a 10 minute shower the body absorbs or inhales chlorine equivalent to drinking eight glasses of 
    untreated tap water.


  • Unit consists of two tanks: a slim vertical tank containing Dowex resin and a brine tank for the regenerant (see photos).
  • Has a fully automatic control valve which meters household use for demand regeneration resulting in excellent efficiency and cost control.
  • Ion exchange resin eliminates minerals and regenerates periodically with inexpensive softener salt.


  • Reduces the use of soaps, shampoos, and cleaners by 80% or more.
  • Reduces skin problems; does not strip off natural body oils.
  • Extends fabric life 33%.
  • Extends the life of plumbing fixtures, dishwashers, hot water tanks especially the new tankless models.
  • Reduces natural gas hot water heating costs up to 35%.
  • Typically saves a household $25.00/month per person.


  • Four stage drinking water system consisting of two pre-filters, a membrane, storage tank, and post- filter.
  • High production TFC membrane ( up to 3 gal. per hour) removes 98% of metals such as mercury, lead, sodium and aluminum.
  • The filters remove sediment, chlorine, pesticides and organic contaminants (see details in Whole House unit).


  • Unlimited supply of healthy drinking water.
  • Huge savings over bottled water (SEE CHART BELOW).
  • Healthy air in your home with hook up to furnace humidifiers.
  • Convenience: connect to additional faucets e.g. bar sink, ensuite, fridge dispenser and ice-maker, or a bottleless cooler if desired.
  • Great for washing fruit and vegetables, steam irons, house plants, hobbies.
  • Coffee makers and kettles last “forever”.
  • No worries about leaching from plastic bottles

    Our Scheduled Maintenance Program is truly unique in the industry because we keep track and we call you to  perform the following detailed service, normally semi-annually.

  • Test product water of Reverse Osmosis unit.
  • Test and check other equipment e.g. softener and whole house carbon filter.
  • Re-pressurize storage tanks.
  • Sanitize tank, sumps, faucet lines.
  • Install new filters, rinsing a food grade sanitizer through them also.
