Reduce PFAS 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 can help you get your water tested for PFAS/PFOS in the Selwyn area. Call (705) 243-6021 to learn more!  

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 reduce 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 reduces sediments and PFAS contaminants, but also eliminates odours and improves taste.

I Rent a water softener from McLeod's Ecowater and have regular softener appointments for cleaning it. Sometime before Christmas, I had a service call from McLeod's and had a new technician came to the house named Brian. Not only did he do a wonderful cleaning of my softener, but he also took time to explain to me what he was doing and how to adjust the settings if necessary in between appointments. I would recommend McLeod's and especially Brian for anyone thinking of renting a softener for their residence. Cheers, Mike Neary

I recently contacted McLeod’s and Pat reached out to answer my questions within a couple hours. He was so friendly and went above and beyond to walk me through the next steps. I really appreciated his honesty, he didn’t try to upsell their products/services. That’s what makes this amazing local business stand out!

We experienced a pressure tank problem on a 7 year old filtration system. The staff were helpful in identifying the tank as the problem, advising the part is still under warranty and then assisting me by phone to remove the old unit and replace it. Zero cost, great assistance and support from everyone. That's how you build a loyal customer base. Great work!

We had McLeod’s come and install our new water softener system up at the cottage. Talking to Kimberly from the beginning and sending her picture of the water softener system that was there when we bought the cottage was basically all she really needed to get set us on the right track to a new system. The gentlemen arrived and proceeded to replace the old with a new system without any problems. They even set up a schedule as to when the salt needed to be added. All is working wonderful and we truly appreciate the professionalism that came along with the work. Thank you Kimberly and your associates for the wonderful, professional job that you did. We will highly recommend McLeods Ecowater. Thank you again.

Kim attended as a result of a request by me to have the system checked due to rust issues. Port Perry was under new ownership. I had the old ownership attend twice re water issues and they installed an in line water filter (didn't stock replacement filter when I needed one) and sold me Rust Out. Had the water softener company send a regional manager to look at my water softener system and it was adjusted.When Kim attended she advised that I had soft water and didn't require a water softener system. No one, including the original installer, ever told me that. Kim advised I needed a Ecowater iron removal filter system. I had it installed and the softener removed with Kim providing a plan for me to try out the system to see if it worked.What a difference the iron filter has made to my water. No more brown residue on bathroom sinks, tubs and showers. washcloths stay white.Hard to believe we spent several years with the wrong system and no one bothered to tell us. My wife had complained about the water and that's why I had it checked so many times. My wife passed away in July 2022 before Kim fixed my water problem so she never got the satisfaction of knowing she was right about the water.I big "Thank you" to KImberley Bain of Ecowater.Harvey Williams

I want to personally thank Kimberly Bain for her very professional and friendly way she had with us. There was no pressure and she showed us what the problem was and how to fix it. Would definitely recommend her if or when we need a new one. Very honest and respectable person

From the time of first enquiry re the service, costs, installation and delivery, everything was professional, with complete documented information and delivery expectations.All were met and the actual delivery and installation went faster and better than expected. The clean-up was immediate and by the next day we were experiencing better than expected results.The system continues to operate as described and we had a power outage for almost five hours five weeks after the system was installed and the auto system kicked in and everything went back to normal.Highly recommend McLeod's Ecowater System, the company, the service representative and installation technician. The water tastes great and looks much clearer and the hard water lines have all disappeared, showers feel so much better, and the sinks, tub and toilets can now be shown with pride for cleanliness.Thanks McLeod's, much appreciated.Wayne Westman

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!
