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.

We got a new water softener, air pressure tank and UV system. They did an awesome job and got everything installed for soon after we had the rep out to our place. We had a small problem with the pressure and they sent out a technician to tweak the problem right away. I would highly recommend them for your water needs!!!

McLeod's Ecowater installed a filtered water bottle filling station in my yoga studio a couple of years ago. Their product and service is fantastic and so far we've saved over 17,000 plastic bottles thanks to them!

McLeod’s have been looking after our water system since the house was built in 1997. The water softener, water ionizer and RO system are still running smoothly after 24 years. The UV lasted 21 years. Our “water guy” comes out each year and ensures everything is working properly. Service has always been great, and I appreciate how they use Canadian-made brands whenever possible. I highly recommend McLeod’s!

Just had new softener and sulfur filters installed by two very accomplished installers, Wyatt and Ethan. Their work was very neat and well done. I recommend them highly. As for the filters, we could not be happier with the ones selected by Kimberly. Thanks for a hassle free installation and great water !!!.

From the first call to the post installation questions, the team at McLeod's water has been responsive, accommodating and professional. Very grateful they were able to upgrade and install new components to our water system in time for us to move into our new home.

Install went well. The installers were courteous, the install was clean and fast. We purchased a reverse osmosis system and water softener. They were not cheap. It has been 4 months and I can honestly say it is one of the best purchases we have ever made. I had no idea how bad our water actually was. It was literally a life changer. We are so happy!

Absolutely amazing team from Kimberly in sales and the install team. A possible issue post install was very quickly resolved and found that it had nothing to do with the Ecowater system. Very very happy with all and would gladly recommend McLeod's to everyone looking for amazing water.
