PFAS Removal From Your Family’s Water With One Efficient System

Water all over the country has frequently been positive for lead, cysts, and PFOA/PFOS, and our area is not exempt. These chemicals have been found to exceed the levels set forth by health advisory organizations and may cause health problems.

 Eighteen million people live in North American communities where the water systems are in violation of the law. As a mater of fact, the federal agency in charge of making sure those systems are safe not only know these issues exist, they’ve done little to stop them, according to information provided by CNN, which cites multiple sources and water experts.

Our goal is not to scare anyone into getting water treatment, however, educating our local community about water quality is a top priority. We’ve worked with many local families to improve their water and to provide peace-of-mind, knowing the water they drink and bathe in is free of harmful contaminants.

Contact us today to learn more about our professionally installed and serviced drinking water system that reduces PFOS contamination. Fill out the contact form or call (705) 243-6021!

What are PFAS, PFOA, PFOS and What’s The Difference Between Them?

In a nutshell, PFAS stands for per- and polyflouralkyl substances, which are synthetic chemicals used to make everyday products we all use (your cell phone, your non-stick pans, some food packaging, most things that used to be made at 3M are made of PFAS). PFOA (perfluorooctanoic acid, also referred to as C8) and PFOS (perfluorooctane sulfonate) are simply two types of PFAS, and the difference between the two is the amount of carbon atoms in the chain of polyflouralkyl. GenX is also considered a PFAS contaminant.

These chemicals have been around for almost 80 years, when they started being manufactured in the 1940’s. Unfortunately, a lot of chemical waste ends up being dumped in the water supply we drink from. Imagine 80 years of chemical waste contaminating the water we use every day.

The Water Quality Association (WQA.org) tells us exposure to PFAS can happen when we eat food grown in soil contaminated by PFAS or drink water that has been contaminated and not properly filtered out. It can also be released through the household products we use to clean our homes.

Some potential health risks of PFAS exposure are cancer, a weakened immune system, fertility issues, low birth weight for infants, abnormal levels for cholesterol and thyroid hormones, and inflammation of the liver. Other health-related issues are still under research.

McLeod's EcoWater also offers free water tests to homeowners in the Selwyn area. Call (705) 243-6021 to schedule your free water test now!

PFOA and PFOS chemicals are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. McLeod's EcoWater provides a unique system, to successfully remove these chemicals from your water, which is installed right in your house. 

Our systems have been tested and certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 58 by NSF International, and not only removes sediments and PFAS contaminants, but also eliminates odours and and improves taste.

Although I have not purchased anything from Mc Leod‘s, I have on a few Occasions gone to them for advice or assistance with my 22 year old Culligan installed system. they have been very helpful and knowledgeable and didn’t charge me or try to sell me something I didn’t need. When I get to a point that I can no longer repair my current system they will be my first stop.

Our water is fantastic! Thank you McLeod's(same last name, no relation)We recently had Kimberly from McLeod's come by to do a water test, we have chlorine and a high sediment content which made the tap water undrinkable. The system was installed and WOW, what a difference! No chlorine smell and the water is super clear. In addition, all our pipes and water-dependent appliances, etc, are protected from the sediment.Another benefit is NO FILTERS TO CHANGE and NO CLEANING performed by us!Yes, we highly recommend McLeod's, from sale to installation it was a five star experience!

My conversation with McLeods sales person Ryan,seemed to show a good knowledge of the UV filter system that I was interested in .The price quote included all fees and seemed fair. A few weeks later when the installer showed up,John was very professional and courteous and had the system installed in about an hour. I was quite happy with neat install and he also gave me a good comprehensive review of the system and future maintenance. Happy

The service we received was excellent. A salesman came out to see us and explained everything to us. We had a 15 year old water softener that stopped working. Before he left , we already knew we wanted to deal with Mcleod's. They installed the new one and took away the old one. They also serviced our conditioner, no charge. We also got 3 bags of salt to start things off. I highly recommend this Company. Gloria Taylor

Kimberly just came to our home (on a Saturday) to test out our water and gave us options for our hard water and UV options to make it drinkable, we couldn't be more happy with the customer service, since they have a person like her working for the company I knew we found the right company to go with. We are excited for our install date.

After 2 decades of service they have , without warning or even trying to help us, they have cancelled our service saying.."they were not making a profit from our account". So not a 5 star company.

Very impressed with the entire process in consultation, pricing, install and final results. Our water was undrinkable (iron, funny taste) and we reached out to other companies in the area before touching base with McLeod's. Ryan came out and assessed or situation. His recommendation was superior and far cheaper then any alternative from other companies.We were even given a free filter. We no longer purchase bottled water or use our water dispenser. A year plus in and we could not be happier. Do yourself a favour and give them an opportunity to provide you with a plan and quote. You will not be sorry.
