  • No filter cartridges required
  • 10 year warranty

Water Softeners

Hard water is water with a high mineral content. It affects everything it touches - from your skin and hair to your appliances and plumbing fixtures. It creates scale build up in your pipes, causes water spotting in your taps, and lessens the effectiveness of soap and detergent which ultimately results in dry, itchy skin and dull, limp hair.

Thankfully, we have two great solutions to offer: a regular water softener that removes clear water iron or our combination water conditioning system that’s designed to soften your water plus remove chlorine, helping to eliminate odours and reduce contaminants that will leave you with water that feels, tastes and cleans better.

Our water softeners/conditioners are ideal for those living in hard water areas. Water hardness levels are measured by grains per gallon (GPG). The degree of hardness becomes greater as the mineral content increases.

Reverse Osmosis

Experience an endless supply of purified water. Our point-of-use reverse osmosis drinking water system has the design capacity to supply a single tap and/or a refrigerator (optional hookup) so you can safely drink straight from the source while saving up to $80/year.**

These systems use up to 4 filters to remove up to 96% of chlorine, reduce sodium, fluoride and other chemical contaminants leaving you with purified water. See and taste the difference with clearer water and ice cubes. No more plastic water bottle waste, waiting around for your cooler delivery or filtering one pitcher at a time.

Unlike carbon filters alone, the RO membrane is a critical step in the purification process. Once water passes through, it goes on to remove 99% of any remaining dissolved solids.* Those impurities are captured and flushed out of the system. The purified water is then stored in a 5 gallon tank for your use.

Total dissolved solids (TDS) refers to the amount of minerals, organic matter and chemicals that are dissolved in a municipality’s water supply. It is measured by its mobile charged ions and expressed in parts per million (PPM).

A Reverse Osmosis system produces ideal drinking water which is between 0-50 PPM and can produce up to 75 gallons of water per day.

TDS in parts per million (PPM)

Overview TDS (PPM) Description
Ideal Scenario 0-50 Ideal drinking water from reverse osmosis, deionization, microfiltration, distillation, etc.
100 Carbon filtration, mountain springs or aquifers
Range of Average Tap Water 170 Hard water
200-300 Marginally acceptable
400 High TDS water from the tap or mineral springs
Potential Risk Levels 500+ U.S. EPA’s maximum contamination level

Reverse Osmosis System

Rent a Reverse Osmosis system from $8.99/month + HST1 or buy from $469.99 + HST2 (includes standard installation).

Whole Home Water Filters

A whole home water filter is designed to remove chemicals that can be absorbed through your skin while bathing or ingested when drinking your tap water. It’s a chemical-free system that filters out heavy metals, chlorine, lead, industrial volatile chemicals, trihalomethanes and hundreds of other toxins.

This product is ideal for those already living in soft water areas and is recommended for bathing, cleaning, and other external use. While the water produced by a whole home water filter is safe for drinking, we recommend a Reverse Osmosis System for drinking water.
