Wahl H2O - Water Awareness

The goal of our program is to raise awareness about water, water treatment and the potential risks to a consumer. Many homeowners and cottagers have water treatment equipment installed and are not aware of the maintenance requirements and operating conditions to ensure their water safety. If there are no warning indicators or problems often equipment will be left without any service.

Water treatment equipment is often installed at the recommendation of real estate agents, plumbers or by a homeowner on water that does not meet their operating requirements. What happens if the power goes out or the systems are not maintained correctly? There is a risk if the water quality contains contaminants that can foul the systems and prevent them from operating correctly. If there are no alarms or flashing lights to warn the consumer that the system is not operating properly how is it possible to know that the water is safe?
