Water Problem : Total Dissolved Solids
Total dissolved solids can cause unpleasant taste in water and cause the water to buildup scale on fixtures and appliances. The higher the dissolved solid content, the more objectionable the taste and the more scale build up. Some water supplies are so high in mineral content they taste salty, almost like sea water. These supplies can corrode faucets and water heaters in very short periods of time.
Water Problem : Bacteria
Bacteria in water can take many forms and the best way to know the type present is to have your water professionally tested. Nelson Water offers this service. We use a special sterile container and have the sample analyzed by an independent provincial certified laboratory. One of the most frightening water quality issues out there is microbiological contamination. E. coli being one of the most commonly known by consumers at large and being often of great public concern. Though often associated with food contamination, water is just as susceptible to this microbiological contaminant and most homeowners don’t realize that water softeners and filters will do nothing to keep them safe from dangerous microorganisms like E. coli.
Water Problem : Toxic Chemicals
These chemicals are more commonly referred to as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), but there is nothing organically good about them. They are very dangerous man-made chemicals like TCE, PCB, THM, PCE, benzene, insecticides, pesticides, herbicides, etc. They commonly enter the drinking water from leaking underground storage tanks, industrial run off, leaking landfills, toxic dumping/spills or were used in farming before they were known to be harmful. Many of these man-made toxins are known to cause cancer when humans come into contact with them. These dangerous chemicals can be ingested in your drinking water, inhaled in the shower, or absorbed through your skin when bathing.
Water Problem : Tannins
Tannins make water look yellow or brownish in color. They cause staining on clothes and fixtures and makes the water look murky and unclear. Tannins are composed of tiny pieces of organic material floating in the water and are typically due to decomposing vegetation getting into water supplies.
Water Problem : Sulphur & Methane Gases
Dissolved gases can cause cloudiness and bad odors in water. They also cause pipes to hammer and sputter when a faucet is opened. Methane gas is odorless and occurs naturally in some underground water wells. Hydrogen sulfide gas smells like rotten eggs and is occasionally present in underground aquifers. Dissolved gases in water can be aggressive on piping systems and cause wear on valves, seats and washers.
Water Problem : Chlorine
Chlorine can make water smell and taste bad. This toxic chemical is a powerful oxidant and is commonly used as a disinfectant in municipal water supplies to manage bacteria levels. Chlorine in drinking water will kill other potentially harmful organisms that seep into lakes, rivers, streams and ground water. Even at acceptable levels, Chlorine can contribute to dry eyes and skin irritation as well as make conditions such as eczema worse.
Water Problem : Hard Water
Hard water is created when water passes through rock formations and picks up calcium and magnesium. Hard water is easy to spot: it leaves a bathtub ring made up of hardness minerals and soap. This scum collects on shower walls, clings to hair, clogs skin pores and makes house cleaning extremely difficult. Hard water deposits also clog pipes, cause water heaters to operate inefficient, and increase the maintenance on water using appliances.
Water Problem : IRON
Iron water is created when ground water passes through iron-bearing rocks. Because iron accounts for 5% of the earth's crust, it can be found in just about all types of water supplies. Iron has the tendency to leave stains on sinks, tubs, toilets, clothing and linens, or it can form scale and clog plumbing in water using appliances while making water turn a rusty color as well as smell and taste bad.
Whether it’s removing the Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) in your entire home or just your drinking water, we are the experts. The Canadian Drinking Water Objectives for Total Dissolved Solids are less than 500 ppm. With our system we are generally able to get it below 50 ppm. With either an ERO 375 Reverse Osmosis System or Whole House RO System can provide you with great tasting, low TDS, drinking water.

After identifying the problem through professional testing, the process of eliminating the organisms varies based on type bacteria, cost effectiveness and personal choice. Chlorination systems, like a municipal water supply, use chlorine to kill bacteria. An ultra-violet light system eliminates bacteria as the water passes through the light chamber and may be an alternative that’s right for you. The decision to use either technology depends greatly on the water conditions and how much pre-treatment may be necessary to enable either process to work properly. For simply filtering drinking water, the EPS 1000 is certified to meet or exceed the Canadian Drinking Water Standards for the removal of bacteria, viruses and cysts, such as cryptosporidium and giardia.

The EcoWater Central Water System is the Whole House Solution for the removal of toxic chemicals. For higher flow rate needs, the ETF 2300 is the system of choice. For drinking water alone an EcoWater Reverse Osmosis System is the recommended solution.

For tannins in your water the most often recommended unit is an EcoWater ESS XR32 with a specialty resin. This unit regenerates with salt like a conventional water softener, but with the specialty resin it removes tannins. When tannins combine with other elements such as iron, a chemical injection system will likely be required. In any case, the best starting point is a thorough evaluation of your water, conducted by our experienced staff.

Sanitizer | ETF AIIF Air Injection Filter | Chemical Injection System
If you have rotten egg odour in your water you may not need any equipment at all. Should the odour be noticed only when using hot water, the problem may be simply fixed by servicing the water heater. If your cold and hot water, however, is found to have a trace of hydrogen sulphide gas, our Sanitizer Series may be the solution for you. The Sanitizer has the unique ability to remove low amounts of hydrogen sulphide and soften your water, eliminating the need to purchase two separate pieces of equipment. In more severe cases of hydrogen sulphide, an ETF AIV Air-Aspirated Sulfur Filter may be the right choice. When these gases combine with other elements such as tannins or bacteria, a chemical injection system may be required. In any case, the best starting point is a thorough water evaluation of your water, conducted by our experienced staff.

When removing chlorine is the sole objective, the (ECWS) EcoWater Central Water System whole house solution, is the ideal choice. If hard water is also present, the most efficient way for a homeowner to eliminate chlorine is through the ERR 3702 whole home refining system, which combines water softening with chlorine removal in one integrated piece of equipment. For a drinking and cooking only solution, e.g. kitchens, ice makers and wet bars, the EcoWater Reverse Osmosis System is the best option.

The top of the line EcoWater ECR 3702 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. Because of this, many customers have saved significantly by not needing to install an additional iron filter. If your water is discolored from the well, an ETF AIV Air-Aspirated Iron Filter ahead of your softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a chemical injection system may be required.

was impressed and his confidence and clarity as he explained the filtering process and his personal liking of the water. It is obvious you have an
honest operation. May God bless your enterprise.
Sincerely, St Christopher
My husband and I recently bought a water softener from Nelsonwater. Both the salesman and the installer were
knowledgeable, professional and punctual. The unit works well, is more efficient and takes up less space than our previous system. We are happy
customers and would recommend Nelsonwater!
Sincerely, Danielle Patry
From the pre-sales, to the sales, to the install and follow-up I have been very impressed with the attention to detail and
