Arsenic in Water in Peterborough, Cobourg, Ennismore, Lakefield, & Kawartha Lakes

Arsenic is a common water issue in Ontario, however, it can be easily and affordably removed with an under-sink filter from McLeod's EcoWater.

According to the CDC, “Arsenic can enter the water supply from natural deposits in the earth or from industrial and agricultural pollution. It is widely believed that naturally occurring arsenic dissolves out of certain rock formations when groundwater levels drop significantly. Some industries… release thousands of pounds of arsenic into the environment every year. Once released, arsenic remains in the environment for a long time. Arsenic is removed from the air by rain, snow, and gradual settling. Once on the ground or in surface water, arsenic can slowly enter groundwater. High arsenic levels in private wells may come from certain arsenic-containing fertilizers used in the past or industrial waste. It may also indicate improper well construction or overuse of chemical fertilizers or herbicides in the past.”

How do you know if you have arsenic?

A simple water test can inform you as to the presence and quantity of arsenic in your water. McLeod's EcoWater offers water testing as well as professional analysis of what the test results mean so you know the best way to move forward with treatment.

I had the best experience at McLeod's last week. Our new-to-us cottage came with an ultraviolet light system and no instructions. The excellent people at McLeod's took the time to walk me through the process of changing the light and filter, and answered all my questions. They were extremely helpful and super friendly. I highly recommend McLeod's!

Living all our life in the city, and then moving to a rural homer we were stumped as to why our water was coating our kettle and dishwasher with a layer of "'sludge" We looked online and were a bit put off by the cost and attention needed to running a softener. A neighbour recommended McLeod's water softener and I'm so glad they did. A rep called on us and explained how everything works and within 2 weeks we had our softener installed by a most pleasant and safety conscious tech. Since then our appliances are clean and "sludge" free, and what a difference with our shower water! To top it all, the softener basically looks after itself, and the cost of the softener and installation was less than some companys were asking just for the installation.If you are thinking of getting a water softener I have no hesitation in recommending McLeod's.

We highly recommend Rowan and the entire team at McLeod's!! They identify the problems, recommend solutions, and then get things installed very quickly. We've been a customer for many years, and won't go anywhere else for our water treatment needs.

My water problem was very serious. Super high iron and poor recovery rate from my well. Kimberly proposed a solution and the professional installers did a great job - very tidy especially challenging tight quarters. An adjustment was necessary a month or so after the install and it was attended to promptly. Finally - great water!

We have had nothing but great experiences with every member of the McLeod's team. We have purchased a reverse osmosis system and water softener from them and they have serviced other equipment in our home. They are professional, knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. We wouldn't go anywhere else for our water treatment purchases or maintenance.

Knowledgeable and friendly staff.. I attended with questions on purchasing a water softener system.. Rowan attended my home that afternoon, provided a water test and gave me advice on what I need. Further, he temporarily rectified the problem with my current softener system free of charge.. Will definitely take my business there in the future!
