As we speak, hardness minerals (such as calcium and magnesium) are slowly building up in your home on everything your water touches.

This includes  things like your water heater, your dish washer, your faucets, and even your skin…

It doesn’t matter if your water is from a well, or from the city supply, most homes in Canada have hard water.

Few people know, but you can only remove hardness minerals from your water through ion exchange, which is what a water softener does.

Water filters are built to remove other contaminants, but not hardness minerals…

The EcoWater Softener is our best water softener. It softens all the water coming into your home before it has a chance to enter your appliances.

EcoWater All-in-One Water Softener System

Here’s what you can expect from an EcoWater whole home water softener:

  • Removes chlorine taste and odor by filtering your water with a built in coconut-shell carbon filter
  • Eliminates spots on silverware, glasses and dishes
  • Prevents scale build-up on pipes, faucets and water using appliances
  • Customizable to meet additional water treatment needs you may have

Financing options available!

How do you know if you have hard water?

Here are some telltale signs…

  1. Your skin is dry and itchy and your hair is dull
  2. Your drinking glasses & stemware come out of the dishwasher with spots
  3. Your faucets and fixtures have a crust that’s hard to remove
  4. Your water heater takes forever to heat up, or you’ve prematurely had to replace or repair it
  5. Your whites are more like 50 shades of gray and your brights have lost their luster

What are the Benefits of Soft Water?

Softer Skin & Hair

Hard water minerals bond with skin and hair leaving a nasty film. Kind of like that limescale on your faucet! An EcoWater softener removes hardness minerals naturally so you can stop spending money on lotions & skin care products as your body becomes free of buildup!

Extend Appliance Life

Dishwashers, washing machines, water heaters (tankless, electric, & gas), ice makers, boiler systems, & humidifiers all suffer when your water contains hardness minerals. Their useful life may be greatly reduced because they are not designed to endure hard water.

It Can Pay for Itself

You can save up to 75% on cleaning products, as they are more effective and less are needed. You can also save up to 40% on energy costs related to your water-using appliances, and plus they last longer. Its harder to estimate the amount of savings you get when you no longer have to waste time scrubbing that scale off your shower doors, faucets, fixtures, dishes, & glassware.

No Hassle, No Obligation

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!

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

Frequent Questions

How do I choose a water softener?

Softeners aren’t one size fits all. That’s where we can start to help you. Based on the size of your household and your typical water usage, we can determine which softener size you’ll need.

Sizing is an important step, as it ensures there is enough capacity to handle your needs  and not so much capacity that it creates waste.

From there, you can choose additional features to make your life easier or to meet additional water treatment needs based on the results of your water test.

How much does a water softener cost?

This will depend on the size, features, and your particular installation. The best way to get pricing is to call so that you can get it properly sized.

Pricing includes the new equipment, the installation and proper setup, so that it meets your expectations.

A water softener can potentially pay for itself over time with savings on detergents, soaps, and cleaning supplies, reductions in energy usage and the extended life of your water-using appliances. Water heaters tend to suffer the most in hard water, and they are expensive to replace.

Why not just buy a softener from a big box store or online retailer?

Big box stores sell softeners that are made with lower quality parts to reduce the price, even if you get name brand.

You will still have to hire a local plumber to do the install, unless you are quite knowledgeable in plumbing.

It can be difficult to get any warranty work done from a big box store, and often there is no warranty from online retailers.

In either case, you will usually just get referred to a local plumber who may not necessarily have knowledge of your specific equipment.

So essentially you are on your own once it reaches your house.

What are the next steps?

You send us your contact info through one of the forms on this page, or give us a call directly.

We ask you a few questions to help get you the right equipment so you get what you expect from your water.

If you’re not sure what is wong with your water. We will schedule a convenient time to come out and test it for you (free of charge), and if it looks good, we can leave it at that.

However, if you already know you have hard water, or the test shows you do, we can give you a price quote on the properly sized water softener.

If you’re satisfied, we schedule a convenient time to come out and install and set up your new water softner.

What is a Dare to Compare Guarantee?

It is a guarantee that for 30 days after you purchase an EcoWater softener, if you find an equal or better softener (regarless of price) with the same technical performance specs, warranty, consumer protection etc. (for fairness of comparison), you will get your money back and keep the system free.

In less words, EcoWater is confident that they provide the best softener with the best guarantees, so you don’t have to worry about your purchase.

What is covered by the Warranty?

This depends on the model and features you get.

To keep it simple, it’s best just to ask us when you are choosing your softener.

How do I maintain my softener?

You’ll be able to monitor your softener’s usage and the salt levels via the mobile app. When the salt gets low the app will notify you. Then you just purchase softener salt and refill it.

If you prefer the less manual route, you can schedule a salt delivery with us. We’ll deliver the salt and fill your softener for you.

Frequency of salt refill really depends on your household’s water usage and the efficiency of the softener (EcoWater are extremely efficient). In an average household, a softener can go 2 to 4 months on a refill.

What happens if I need help with my softener?

Just give us a call, our direct number is here on this page and most of the pages of our site. You will reach a local technician who can answer your questions, or you will be able to schedule us to come out and help.

Why should I choose to work with you?

Because we care. Try and get that from an online retailer or a big box store.

We would be proud to be your trusted advisor and go-to for your water treatment needs, to keep you and your family healthy and happy.
