If you own a private well here in Alberta, you know contaminants can make your drinking water smelly, cloudy, unpalatable, and possibly hazardous to your health.
Testing for contaminants in your well annually is imperative for your well-being. Installing the appropriate water treatment systems to mitigate particles, metals, chemicals, or bacteria in your well water makes good sense.
At Alpha Plumbing, we can assist you with testing. The results, provided by a third-party lab, guide us in recommending a drinking water system best suited to eliminate or reduce specific contaminants in the drinking water at your Calgary, AB, home.
Water Treatment Solutions
No single filter or treatment process will eliminate all contaminants.
For example, if you have silt and dirt in your water, you might need whole-house sediment filtration and a drinking water system. If testing shows bacteria and viruses are the problems, an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection system may be the solution.
A point-of-use carbon filter or reverse osmosis system works with your drinking water tap. We typically install these systems under the kitchen sink, where they screen out contaminants such as arsenic, lead, and nitrates.
When you use the correct drinking water system and filters, you can consume your well water confidently, knowing it is clean and safe to drink.

What's in My City Water?
Your municipal water supply originates from a well, river, lake, or another water source. Your public water supplier must follow Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) standards and issue a water quality report to customers annually. During the treatment process, chlorine is added to the water to make it safe to drink.
However, municipal water supplies are not immune to contamination. An error made during treatment can affect the amount of chlorine that ends up in the water supply. Contaminants may enter your water supply through deteriorating pipes. Sewage released during a flood may contaminate municipal water systems.
Do You Have "Forever Chemicals" in Your Drinking Water?
Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), also known as "forever chemicals," are cause for concern in municipal and well water supplies.
According to the Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), PFAS do not break down in the environment, can build up in fish, and travel through soil to contaminate drinking water sources.
Research suggests high levels of certain PFAS may lead to increased cholesterol in the human body, changes in liver enzymes, and an increased risk of kidney cancer, along with other medical issues.
Our experts at Alpha Plumbing can add an extra layer of protection to your city water supply by installing a drinking water system in your Calgary, AB, home.
