Come Visit Our Show Room

The Water Shed carries a wide range of top quality water softeners, water treatment systems, well pumps, and other products..


There are instances where wells need to be abandoned or “decommissioned”. Sometimes this happens because a well presents a safety hazard or its continued use might contaminate the aquifer. In such cases, Nova Scotia Environment requires the well owner to fill and seal it using a government-approved method.

The Water Shed holds a valid Nova Scotia water well contractor licence and is therefore qualified and happy to do this work for you.
