Healthy Water > Water Contaminants

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.




Great Prodcts and Outstanding Service

"Just wanted to let you know how much we've appreciated our MineralPRO water filtration system. We bought it initially for use in our RV trailer. Carrying a large bottle of water everywhere, having to set it up at each stop, and then having to stow it away to travel was quite a nuisance but necessary because we could not always be sure of local drinking water where we camped. Since we've installed the MineralPRO system in our RV trailer, we always have great drinking water wherever we travel.

Our second MineralPRO system will be installed in our new house we are in the process of building. To get ideas and to research building materials for our new house we visited home shows across western Canada and tried many water samples from various water filter systems. The MineralPRO water simply tasted better than any other sample we tested, and the MineralPRO system makes sense in terms of producing naturally healthy water.

Thank-you MineralPRO for the great products and outstanding service!"
