Water Quality Contaminants


Majority of communities throughout Canada, the United States, and the world have water that is neither safe nor healthy for drinking.

Drinking unfiltered tap water can be hazardous and unhealthy because of contaminants from chemicals, microbiological bacteria and viruses, pharmaceutical drugs, toxic metals and others.

As a result of the extent of contamination in drinking water, the World Health Organization (WHO) has outlined that a preventative management approach be taken to ensure water is safe to drink and not wait for public authorities to finally address the issue of widespread contamination.


Microbiological and Chemical Contamination

Naturally occurring chemicals such as arsenic and fluoride in ground water have been identified as a problem in drinking water. Contamination of water bodies by industrial waste water and agricultural run-off is one of the major issues threatening public health.

It is essential that water be free of bacteria, viruses, and cysts; Pathogens in drinking water present immediate health risks and can be fatal. Every year thousands of cities across Canada and the United States are on boil water advisories due to the presence of pathogens in the public water systems.


Chlorine and Pharmaceutical Drugs

Recent water analysis's conducted in cities around the world have demonstrated that pharmaceutical drugs are present in municipal water supplies. According to CTV News, "Canadians' tap water may contain traces of prescription drugs".

Birth control pills, cancer drugs and a host of other pharmaceuticals are making their way into the water supply because the human body doesn't always absorb all the medication it ingests, and some are flushed down the drain, says Gord Miller, Ontario's environmental commissioner.




"I am writing to express how very much my husband and I are enjoying our MineralPro water filtration system, which we purchased a year ago. We are thrilled to have fresh-tasting, clear water at a turn of the faucet. Knowing that the MineralPro system filters out so many unwanted substances from the water, and adds beneficial minerals back in, gives us much-appreciated peace of mind. We find that MineralPro water quenches our thirst much more effectively than straight tap water ever did. We also use the water to cook vegetables and prepare soups, sauces and juice, and we find that everything tastes so much better now. We even fill our pets’ drinking bowls with MineralPro water, and we use it for our plants and flowers, too! With MineralPro, we get superior quality and consistently refreshing water, not to mention that we’re saving money by not buying bottled water. We would never consider drinking regular tap water or purchasing bottled water again. Congratulations on developing such a fantastic product."
