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!

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.

Richard and Ty appeared this morning, as booked, to repair our water softener and change the filters on the reverse osmosis unit. I found them to be polite, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. They kept the work area neat and took some things outside to clean. Richard explained everything very well to us and gave some suggestions on salt types.The cost, which we found reasonable considering this unit is over 20 years old, was as had been quoted so no surprises.Thanks Richard and Ty.

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!

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!

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.

We have officially joined the Holmes Ecowater fanclub! With our water softener system we enjoy silky smooth water, a reduced cost when it comes to soaps and cleaning supplies, a cleaner taste right out of the tap, and our little babys dry winter skin is back to soft and smooth (ours too!). From beginning to end we had a great experience with the education direct from the company owner and the quality installation from their tech'.Thanks Holmes Echowater!Allan and Ashley.

Richard was excellent. He arrived on time explained everything he was doing, cleaned up afterwards, made sure I was online, went over everything to do with the machine, and tested the water. I feel confident that I understand how the system works, and how I get notified online when a filter needs changing. I really appreciate someone coming to work in my home that was as thorough as Richard. Thank you.
