Wahl Water Canada

"If you could tomorrow morning make water clean in the world, you would have done, in one fell swoop, the best thing you could have done for improving human health by improving environmental quality."
William C. Clark, April 1988 WI, USA.

" Water Quality should be a matter of personal choice. Education is the key which provides the necessary answers."
Jeff Wahl, December 2014 ON, Canada

The Value of Water
When it comes to water, safety is of paramount concern and too often home owners trust the water implicitly without a full understanding of how it is treated or what the original source is. It is by argument the most valuable resource on the planet with every species requiring some form of water on a daily basis. Boil water advisories, algae blooms, chemicals and agricultural runoff have become common everyday terms and no longer gain the public attention they deserve. Recent concerns over pharmaceuticals, heavy metals and emerging contaminants are generally not understood by the public for the risks associated with them. The value of water simply cannot be understated.

Drinking Water - A Personal Choice
What is the definition of drinking water? It is a matter of perspective for each individual. For some it is from a bottle purchased at the local store. It is only from a pitcher stored in your fridge or purified by water treatment at a separate kitchen tap. Tap water directly from the kitchen sink. Spring water directly from the ground or well. Lake water or filtered by a ceramic element. The choices are endless with very little in the way of publication as to the risks and benefits of each. The enormous scope of water complexity requires that every person make a personal choice as to the quality of water to drink. This choice requires knowledge of the original water source, water treatment and the potential risks for consumption.
