Water Taste and Smell

Water that doesn't smell or taste good will not be consumed by your family and they'll make it the bane of your existence. If you're on City water that has been chlorinated (a known carcinogen which has been linked to cancer) the chlorine will dry out your skin and hair, makes your water, tea and coffee taste awful.

According to the Government of Canada, "a recent study showed an increased risk of bladder and possibly colon cancer in people who drink chlorinated water for 35 years or more". Either a water softener that includes a built-in carbon filter or a backwashing carbon filter will remove the chlorine for your family from all of the household water or you can just remove it from your drinking water with a Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water System. Since many municipalities' water source is from wells the water often contains sodium, making the water taste "thick".

That awful rotten egg smell from well water is sulphur and will make for a very unpleasant shower every time and is sure to be the weekends hot topic for discussion and embarrassment for your family when guests arrive for the weekend. If your well is high in sodium the water will not only taste salty but it will elevate the mineral content of your water far above the 500 ppm maximum level of TDS (total dissolved solids) drinking water standard. This could become a concern for kidney and gall stones. Water that smells and tastes terrible is just not good enough for your family! - Removing the excess minerals, chemicals and creating a second barrier from bacteria for your family's drinking water is critical when you're on well water.

Our Reverse Osmosis Drinking water systems will remove these concerns and give your family super pure drinking water.
