Arsenic in Water in Bowmanville, Newcastle, Courtice, Oshawa, & Port Perry

Arsenic is a common water issue in Ontario, however, it can be easily and affordably removed with an under-sink filter from EcoWater Bowmanville.

According to the CDC, “Arsenic can enter the water supply from natural deposits in the earth or from industrial and agricultural pollution. It is widely believed that naturally occurring arsenic dissolves out of certain rock formations when groundwater levels drop significantly. Some industries… release thousands of pounds of arsenic into the environment every year. Once released, arsenic remains in the environment for a long time. Arsenic is removed from the air by rain, snow, and gradual settling. Once on the ground or in surface water, arsenic can slowly enter groundwater. High arsenic levels in private wells may come from certain arsenic-containing fertilizers used in the past or industrial waste. It may also indicate improper well construction or overuse of chemical fertilizers or herbicides in the past.”

How do you know if you have arsenic?

A simple water test can inform you as to the presence and quantity of arsenic in your water. EcoWater Bowmanville offers water testing as well as professional analysis of what the test results mean so you know the best way to move forward with treatment.

Great refill shop for RO & Alkaline water. Super clean store and friendly/ very helpful staff. It might not be their thing, but I would love it if they could offer spring water too!

I have been using this place for their alkaline water for almost a year now and I have had nothing but the best experience. I recommend them to all my friends and family and as long as I live in Bowmanville, I will continue my business with them. Thank you guys for being so kind, patient, and helpful!

I live in mississauga and have been using 2 local suppliers for my water, due to having to travel to bowmanville area for workand time restrictions I needed to find a local source. I found EcoWater Bowman through a google search and I am glad I did, not only are the staff fun and interactive but the quality of water is way better than I have been getting in the past. I am so happy to have found this place!

Amazing service and amazing water quality!!! Highly recommend to anyone would wants to invest in quality water. The prices are by far the best you can find anywhere, and a better option than bottled water.

Great product, fair prices, relatively small ecological footprint of their whole system, friendly staff. My only complaint is the hours. Several times I've been there before the closing time on the door and either found it closed, or, like today, argued through the door whether it was 4:58 or 5, and they're firm and unwavering in their reading of the clock.I suspect it's a complicated system to shut down and a pain to restart for one fill, but if that's the case, they should have the hours posted accordingly. Nothing but lovely people working there who want to get home, like the rest of us, but I've been there 10 minutes before closing with no sign of activity, so I try to get it in the morning, but especially Friday afternoons, with traffic, it is exceptionally frustrating to get there with minutes to spare only to be told it's later than it is and to come back tomorrow, which is a substantial round trip when you're out of town.I also think it should be posted that anyone drinking nothing but RO water should be taking a calcium and magnesium supplement to avoid losing minerals. They offer "akaline" water with minerals but I've yet to see anyone fill from that tap in the year plus I've been a customer. What the product is - "RO Water"- is clearly posted and they do make an effort to sell the alkaline water for drinking water, but I'm not sure anyone there is aware of the potential long term effects of drinking deionized water or how those effects are easy offset by taking cal-mag or similar w vitamin D. It's not scary-bad, but, over time, will contribute to things like osteoporosis.To be clear, my issues with this company are with the closing times being unforgiving (to say the least) but if you're looking for RO water with a very low waste system and excellent protocol for cleaning jugs (peroxide rinse), this is the place.

I've been filling water jugs at this location for upwards of 5+ years and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.Their small team of staff is always welcoming, friendly and courteous; even as so far as helping to carry jugs to my vehicle for me (I usually bring 6-8 jugs) which is a huge boon.Other reviewers mention the hours of the establishment as a negative which I can see how it could be for a busy family either workwise or kidwise but once you learn their schedule, I found it fairly simple to round up my jugs on a saturday morning and go fetch some water (and other errands).

Polite people, great pricing, clean shop. I really like this place. But, the hours suck. Close at 5 on the weekday so you can't fill up after work and only open 9:30 until 3:30 Saturday - closed Sunday. My friendly suggestion would be to remain open until 6:30 during the week and 5 on Saturday. Gives a better window of time for those who work all day.Still a customer and always will be.. Cheers

Best place in Durham for water refills. The sort of place where they know you by name when you walk in. I couldn't go back to tap water after getting my water here.

We moved to Bowmanville last year and we've been getting water from here ever since. After reading the reviews online and weighing other options, it seemed like the right choice. It's a very clean little facility and it's very easy to clean and refill the bottles. Staff are very friendly and the customer service is on point! You're greeted as soon as you walk in and if you need a hand with your bottles, they're more than happy to help! Which is always nice to see!
