Common well water contaminants in Lethbridge & Southern Alberta

Hardness Minerals
What it is - hard water contains calcium and magnesium minerals which bond with everything they touch leaving "limescale" in their wake.

Treatment – Our guaranteed water softener provides the best option for soft water on the market. It improves the water throughout your entire home while protecting your appliances and fixtures.

Iron
What it is - Iron can come in a couple different forms including dissolved and non-dissolved. Both of which can leave red/orange stains on your sinks, tubs, and toilets and can be extremely hard to remove. Iron can also cause bacteria to grow and let off an unpleasant smell.

Treatment – The EcoWater ECR 3502 is rated to remove up to 15 ppm of clear water iron. In most cases, our equipment can remove triple the iron compared to competitive brands. Should your water run red out of the faucet, an ETF AII9 Air Injection filter ahead of your water softener will usually fix the problem. In severe cases, a separate iron filter may be needed.

Chlorine/Chloramine

What it is - Chlorine or Chloramine is a chemical used by municipal & local water treatment plants to reduce harmful bacteria in the water supply. While this sounds good, chlorine and chloramines can cause a bacteria of their own to grow called trihalomethanes (TTHM) which is quite unsafe to drink or bathe in.

Treatment – The most efficient Chlorine/Chloramine reduction filter is Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) or Catalytic Carbon. Due to the high level of chlorine added to water by cities, you will really appreciate your water with chlorine reduction. See our Whole House Filtration page for more information.

Dirt & Sediment
What it is - dirt & sediment is just as it sounds. This is typically most common in well water or surface water that hasn't gone through a treatment facility.

Treatment – Dirt and sediment are found in almost all water supplies and will decrease the efficiency and lifespan of your appliances. For example, sediment in a water heater can prevent the heat from transferring to the water in the tank once sediment has built up in the bottom. Our whole house filtration system can help with this problem.

Smelly Water (Hydrogen Sulfide or Iron Bacteria)

There are typically two water contaminants that can cause your water to smell like sulphur or rotten eggs, one is Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) and the other is iron or sulphates.

 H2S is a mineral that is released from the earth and finds its way into groundwater. It’s especially common in well water located near shale, sandstone, coal, peat, or oil.

 Occasionally, a rotten-egg smell in your water could also be caused by a water heater or by sewage pollution in your water. If you’re on city water, the most likely explanation is your water heater.

 The most important thing to note is that it is ALWAYS worthwhile to get your water tested as H2S poses a serious potential health risk including nausea, vomiting, and other serious health effects.

Other Contaminants
What they are - common contaminants in our area can include nitrates, lead, arsenic, pharmaceuticals, and more. These are not included in the free water test, however, we do offer full labouratory testing at an affordable price.

Treatment – Protecting the water in your home is important, however ensuring the purity of the water you are putting in your body is even more crucial. Our Reverse Osmosis drinking water system will give you a peace of mind that your drinking water is healthy, and you are going to fall in love with this drinking water system that can provide up to 50 gallons per day of delicious water.

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.

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.

for the past few years we have tried so many filtration systems and like many others we were going to the store and fill our containers. not only was a pain and time but the water still did not taste the way we want it. at my place of work at Davis GM they also tried different companies until they switched to HOLMES ECOWATER. what at difference it did for all of us and our costumers. my family tested and love it so much that we contacted TED DOUCET from Holmes that came to our home and suggested different options for the equipment to be installed and for the last past two years we being enjoying one of the best tasting water ever. our now many of our friends are enjoying at their own homes. since we are getting now more better and tastier and cleaner water , our health has improved dramatically because we are drinking a lot more. thank you Ted Daucet and Holmes Eco water for taking care of my family and friends.

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.

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!!!
