Greater Vancouver possesses one of the best municipal water in the world. Anyhow, research has shown that there is a number of impurities in our water. Chlorine, fluoride, lead, and other forms of metal might be found from water treatment and water pipes. Deadly bacteria such as giardia, cryptosporidium, and e.coli are still possible to be found in untreated water. On top of the problems tap water might have, bottled water also contain toxics and other cancer-causing chemicals can be found in the bottles themselves.

With the reverse osmosis system, not only impurities and bacteria can be filtered out close to 99%, unpleasent odor from previous treatments from filtration plants and water pipes during transportation can also be eliminated. With a normal filtering process without the RO system, our ultra-filtration cooler units can filtrate impurities to 0.2-0.5 micron.

It is a technology whereby water with impurties is forced through a semi-permeable membrance to produce very pure water, with most of the impurities including dissolved solids are rejected by the membrance and down the drain. The micron rating equivalent of RO is to the order of 0.0005 micron (1 micron = 0.001mm), compared to 30 to 50 microns for pitcher type filters found in department stores.

No, but it is highly recommended. Our UV sterilizers ensure 100% bacterial kill after previous filtration process eliminating mostly larger impurities. Our UV sterilizers are installed as the last stage where the remaining bacteria are most exposed to the sterilization process.

The filters should be changed anytime between 6 to 12 months depending on the usage volume. Anyhow, our crew will perform an on-site checkup once every 4 months to ensure the water is at its best quality.

It is absolutely free of charge for on-site visits and filter changes.
