How to choose a quality water filter

Water is vital to our survival, it is second only to the air we breath and its quality is essential to our well-being.

According to a Toronto Star [1], an estimated 225,000 kilograms of heavy metals such as cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, nickel, lead and zinc are released into Lake Ontario every year.

Turnkey Solutions - Nationally and Internationally

Nimbus Water Systems Inc., located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, provides customized water treatment solutions on a regional, national and international level. Canada has incredibly diverse water sources and water quality, which has led to some serious problems and water quality issues.

Common Water Issues

Water Hardness: The term hardness refers to the quantity of dissolved calcium and magnesium in water. These minerals, which come primarily from limestone type rock formations, are found to some degree in almost all natural waters. Acidity (pH): Water which contains excess acidity tends to act aggressively towards plumbing and fixtures, causing corrosion and staining (i.e.-blue green stains on fixtures from copper pipes). Iron (Fe): The presence of Iron is a very common water quality problem, particularly in water from deep wells. Manganese (Mn): Manganese is a metal similar to iron which causes a grey/black stain. Hydrogen Sulphide (H 2S): Hydrogen Sulphide is a gas which smells strongly like rotten eggs.

Serious about Service

Santo Bozzo is serious about customer service. He and his family have built their company, Nimbus Water Systems in Toronto, on that very principle. As they speak about their company and their plans for the future, it’s easy to see that it’s intrinsic in their thinking; to them it’s more about pride then obligation. And it’s put them at the top of their game.

It's a Family Thing

After 30 years in the water business, the Canadian distributor of Nimbus commercial and residential RO products, Nimbus Water Systems, Inc., has grown into a large family business that customers trust and respect. Water Quality Products asked Peter Bozzo, water specialist for Nimbus Water Systems to share some of the creative marketing ideas they use to establish long and successful business relationships.

A Word on Water

Are you getting enough vitamins and minerals?
Are you eating organic foods?
These are amongst common concerns today, but what about water, it’s the most overlooked nutrient of all. In a recent survey two out of three people knew they should drink at least eight glasses a day of water. Three out of four, however, admitted that they were not drinking enough water.

Water in the Diet

Water is "The Most Powerful Healing Substance Known to Man". The human body is primarily composed of water. Water is not only beneficial but also vital to life - only oxygen is more important to human survival. Water plays an enormous role in how well our body functions. Simply put, the more fresh water we drink, the healthier we become. Knowing all this, it never ceases to amaze me when I hear people saying they "forget" to drink water. Would these people need a reminder to breathe? Water increases not only the quality but also the length of our lives! Don't believe me? Let's take a closer look.

The Nature of Water

The need for safe, healthy water is critical to all human life. The search for ways to ensure a ready supply of high quality water has been the life's work of some of our brightest scientists, and the amount of technical knowledge they have generated can fill volumes of text. Such a vast amount of knowledge is beyond the scope of this manual. Our need for knowledge of water quality issues is more practical, more job and customer oriented. We have therefore, made a serious effort to limit this manual to 'purposeful information.'
