There are many things that may affect the quality of your water, and a product to deal with each. Here is a list of some:


Many municipalities and towns in the Toronto area use ground water, which is usually high in dissolved limestone, or hardness. The two principal effects are scaling and soap curd.

Scaling is the white film that builds up on sinks, tiles, countertops, shower doors, et cetera.

Soap curd is the grey, insoluble compound that forms bathtub ring, and turns clothing stiff and grey. The harder the water, the worse the problem. Soap curd tends to aggravate skin problems such as eczema and creates dry, chapped, itchy skin, especially in the winter.

A Water Softener from Just Water eliminates dissolved limestone, and with it the annoyance and expense of scaling and soap curd. Just Water softeners by Erie are state-of -the-art products, warrantied for your lifetime, with the lowest amount of service requirements and the highest efficiency. Compared to competitive products the price is more economical, and the quality is unsurpassed.


Since the disaster in Walkerton, there is hightened awareness of the potential risk to all well-water of contamination by bacteria and viruses. Just Water supplies a full range of quality sterilisers from Ultra-Violet to Oxidation and Chlorination Systems. Products by Erie, Sterilight, and Structural supply the finest quality and lifetime warranties.

Purification/Chlorine Removal

Purification means the removal of harmful or unpleasant contaminants from the water, and may involve a wide variety of products depending on the problem. One of the most common problems is trace chemical contamination of municipal water supplies. Practically all Southern Ontario ground water and water from the Great Lakes contains small amounts of PCB's, THM's and Dioxins, whose long-term health effects are largely unknown.

Chlorine is used to sterilise water mains and prevent harmful bacteria from reaching your home. Once the water does get to your home, you no longer need chlorine. A recent Health and Welfare Canada study showed that long-term exposure to chlorinated water can cause health problems. This same study recommended that chlorine be removed at point of entry into the home, if possible.

The two most widely used purification systems in the home are Carbon Filters and Reverse Osmosis. 'Activated carbon' is the most widely used medium for removing trace chemicals and chlorine, and Just Water Ltd. routinely combines this form of treatment in a combination softener-carbon filter known as a "Purifiner", providing good-quality drinking water at every tap in the house.

Reverse Osmosis is a more sophisticated system involving the use of a specially designed 'membrane' to reject contamination. This system is usually combined with activated carbon, and is most commonly used for one drinking water tap in the kitchen. It can also easily supply an icemaker and cold-water dispenser in the fridge.

Iron and Sulphur Removal

Pockets of iron and sulphur and found in the rock strata around the greater Toronto area and may be dissolved or suspended in well water. Just Water Ltd. supplies the most advanced filters for the removal of these metals, which cause red, brown, or black staining, discoloured water, or unpleasant odours. The two most common types of filters are 'Birm/Air Injection' and Greensand filters. Air injection has become the more popular since it doesn't require the addition of oxidising chemicals.

Colour, Taste and Turbidity

Other problems that can affect the quality of your water, especially on private wells involve substances that change the taste and colour of the water. These may include suspended particles, tannins, colloidal iron, manganese etc. Whatever the problem, Just Water has the state-of-the-art answer. There is no charge to analyse for the most common types of contamination. Should more unusual analysis be required, prices will be discussed in advance. (In the event we have to send out a sample to a private lab).
