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.

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!
