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 Americans live in 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 (587) 813-0494!

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.

How Can I Know I Have Safe Drinking Water?

If you want to know if the water in your area is affected by PFAS contamination, check out the EWG PFAS map below of known areas affected in the United States click here to see the map of known areas affected in the United States.

Holmes EcoWater also offers free water tests to homeowners in the Lethbridge area. Call (587) 813-0494 to schedule your free water test now!

We called someone else first, they said they could not give us softened water except on the hot water only. We heard good things about Holmes EcoWater, so we called them. Eco water came out; Jaime and Richard. Two very nice gentlemen. And we have softened water (except for just 1 tap) so much more than we expected to be able to do. And fresh tasting drinking water with the reverse osmosis system. After everything was installed, and tested they cleaned up every scrap leaving everything neat, clean, and tidy.

My husband likes Ecowater because the first thing they do is walk you through potential problems/trouble shoot 1st. But after we still had problems, Jamie and Richard came over right away, I couldn't believe the customer service. And these two were so informative and very nice. Good job Ecowater.

We had a pleasant experience with Holmes Eco Water. Scott did a great job explaining how their products works. Soon after, we had reverse osmosis filtration system installed (by Michael) on our kitchen sink for our drinking water. We were quite pleased with how fresh tasting the water is.A little problem developed as a result of the install, but Michael came back promptly to fix it. We had been enjoying our fresh and clean-tasting water ever since. Thank you, Michael and Scott! And thank you Holmes Eco Water!

Once again, another year later, we had to call on Homes echo water for some maintenance to our system. Richard continues to impress. He is quick, professional, and gets the job done right! We really appreciate having someone so knowledgeable to help us keeping our water so delicious! Thanks Richard! (Updated April 2024).Richard was fantastic! He came on time and repaired our system for less than what was quoted. He didn’t replace anything that wasn’t broken, which is refreshing for a change. He was professional, and willingly wore a mask as per my request, as I am 8 months pregnant. We will use Homes echo water again and highly recommend them for all of your water needs. Thank you Richard!

February 2024 - as always... Richard walked me through resetting our system after a holiday. Much appreciated that we could do this over the phone!!!...Richard fixed our water system right up today! It was a much simpler fix than we thought, but he took the time to explain each filter, and patiently allowed me to make notes, so that our system should not need another service for a long time. Really appreciated that he had ALL the necessary parts & filters with!!!

We wanted a reverse osmosis system and went to see Holmes Eco Water . They sent someone out to the house in Fort Macleod, explained everything and the cost . We accepted the offer and the installer came in and gave us exactly what we wanted. Afterwards had another visit to make sure everything was A okay, which was an added bonus . Holmes didn’t charge any travel fees, I don’t know another company that doesn’t charge for travel, much appreciated. We love our system. We recommend the system and Holmes for your water needs . Thanks guys !

Very happy with how the service guy installed it! It came out neat and he didn't leave a huge mess behind. Our clothes are becoming cleaner and softer, and so is our skin, a couple of our kids struggle with eczema, and within a week their skin started softening and becoming smoother and started healing a bit as well. Even hair is softer after a couple showers! So happy with the new system!!

Frequently Asked PFAS Questions:

What is PFAS?

PFAS (polyfluoroalkyl substances) are synthetic organofluorine chemical compounds that have multiple fluorine atoms attached to an alkyl chain. They are a group of man-made chemicals that don’t break down and can accumulate over time. There is evidence that exposure to PFAS can lead to adverse human health effects.

What are PFAS chemicals?

Most notably, PFAS chemicals include PFOA, PFOS, & GenX. According to OECD, there are at least 4730 different PFASs.

What are PFAS used for?

PFAS are used for creating stain and water repellent fabrics, nonstick products (e.g., Teflon), polishes, waxes, paints, cleaning products, and fire-fighting foams.

How to filter PFAS out of water?

In general, PFAS resist most conventional chemical treatment technologies employed by local water municipalities. The strongest proven technologies to filter PFAS out of water include granular activated carbon absorption, ion exchange resins, and reverse osmosis.

What does PFAS do to your body?

Exposure to PFAS may result in negative health effects to your body. Some identified by the EPA include:
Developmental effects to fetuses during pregnancy or to breastfed infants
Developmental effects to children
Testicular or kidney cancer
Liver damage
Immune effects (antibody production and immunity)
Thyroid effects
Cholesterol changes

How to test for PFAS?

To test for PFAS, contact your state for a list of laboratories that are certified to test for PFAS using EPA Method 537. To search online for EPA Certified Labs for drinking water testing, go to the EPA’s website.
