People with general concerns about water purity and those afflicted with environmental sensitivities may want to consider The Water Shed’s treatment solutions. Municipalities, including the Halifax Regional Water Commission, frequently use an array of chemicals to treat the water we drink, cook with, and bathe in. For example: lime, chloride, sodium hydroxide, potassium permanganate, alum, polymer, polyphosphate and fluoride are commonly used.

While these chemicals are necessary in the water treatment process, many people find the odours and tastes created by residual chlorine in municipal water objectionable. Whatever your situation may be, your solution is not restricted to buying bottled water.

Simple carbon filtration can improve the taste and smell of municipal water and reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals and particulates. Among others, carbon filtration effectively reduces or removes: Atrazine, Benzine, Trihalomethan, Hydrogen Sulfide, Benzene, PCBs, Carbofuran, Toxaphene, Carbon Tetrachloride, Chlorine, Chloramines, Xylenes, Chlordane, Radon, etc.

The Water Shed offers three carbon filtration options to treat your city water:
