Watertiger offers water filtration products and services for almost any application. We specialize in the design, supply, and installation of residential, commercial, industrial and custom designed water treatment packages as well as commercial and residential rainwater harvesting and collection systems. We also design systems for humanitarian and remote deployments. We can provide off-the-shelf or custom designed, turnkey systems to improve on the quality of water in your home or business, ultra-pure applications for hospitals and laboratories, or automated systems to protect mechanical equipment in your commercial building. We specialize in the removal of unwanted contaminants such as chemicals, minerals, metals, salts, dissolved gases, microbiological, suspended solids or other unwanted, water-borne contaminants. Our customer base is diverse and global. We have equipment operating on every continent and have sent equipment on zero-gravity research test flights with the NASA space program. Contact our offices in Burnaby in the Metro Vancouver area and Victoria/Courtenay on Vancouver Island.
Most of us receive our water from a municipal connection. Not only are there objectionable tastes and odours in city water, but there are often other contaminants that leach into the water supply between the treatment plant and your home such as copper and lead. There are various options to treat just your drinking water or all of the water in your home – including your showers and laundry.
Well water, whether from shallow dug wells or deep drilled wells, often contains contaminants that are either a serious health concern (such as bacteria, Arsenic, Fluoride, Lead, etc.) or have aesthetic impacts such as staining or foul odours (i.e. Iron, Manganese, H2S, Methane, etc.). Your well should be tested for these contaminants and a proper treatment regime put in place.
Many of us pull our water from a surface source such as a lake or river. These sources can be plentiful in volume, but present a unique set of challenges such as high bacteria or parasitic cysts (Giardia and Cryptosporidium), organics and tannins, low pH, high corrosivity and high sediment loads. These issues can present both health risks and aesthetic impacts in the home.
Those who live in water scarce regions often rely on rainwater collection to complement a low flow well or act as their primary, and only, source of water for the home. Using rainwater will not only decrease your reliance on a municipal system, but it can eliminate the complicated treatment equipment required for low-quality well water.
