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?

PFOA and PFOS chemicals are bio-permanent, resistant to direct oxidation, and do not break down naturally in the environment or the human body. Holmes EcoWater provides a unique system, to successfully remove these chemicals and is installed where the water line enters your home or business.

I recently contacted Holmes Ecowater to replace a RO system and water softener that was purchased a number of years ago from a different supplier. Wow... what a difference it makes to deal with a local, customer service-oriented and professional business like Holmes! From the initial call to the business until the completion of the installations, all staff were courteous and friendly. The installers (Richard and Reese) were punctual, highly skilled and completed the installations efficiently. I'd like to acknowledge Richard's experience and knowledge, but also his mentor-like way of sharing this expertise with both customers and his apprentice. I'm looking forward to many worry-free years of high quality water! Thanks Holmes Ecowater!

Had a problem with our water softener (we put in too much salt - more is better, right? Wrong!). Richard came over and broke down the bridge, gave clear directions on what to do and all is well!

We had Terry from Holmes Ecowater do an installation of a reverse osmosis system in our office last week. Terry was a pleasure to have around. He seemed very much at home here after a few minutes, something that made us feel comfortable. His installation looks great, and the finished product works as advertised. I would highly recommend Holmes Ecowater and Terry for their services.
