What’s The Difference Between Tap Water & Pure Water?

Many people have trouble with tap water that smells or tastes a bit strange. Maybe it’s one of your friends or family members. It’s something you notice when you go over to their house. These folks have tap water—but it’s not pure water.

Pure water is created by a filtration process called reverse osmosis, which can improve your water in some of the following ways:

  • Better taste
  • Cleaner smell
  • Clearer appearance

At Canadian Water Conditioning Inc., we believe in providing the information you need to make smart decisions about your water treatment systems—such as learning what distinguishes pure water from tap water, or how a reverse osmosis system will help! Most people don’t think of water as having much variation—but it does.

Next time you’re holding a glass of water, imagine two diamonds: the first diamond is beautiful, but it has lots of blemishes in it. This is tap water. The second diamond is perfect, flawless. This is pure water. Which diamond does your glass of water resemble? And which glass would you rather be drinking from?

The good news is that pure water is much more affordable than buying a flawless diamond! Here at Canadian Water Conditioning Inc., we believe that educating you about water filtration is the best way for us to help you. That’s why our goal is to provide people with the resources they need, so they can make the choice that’s right for them. It’s also why the public voted to give us the Waterloo Region Record Reader Diamond Award for Favourite Water Treatment Company.

When you are buying a water filtration system for your home, there are a lot of variables to consider. You want to make the right choice and you want to be informed about the available options. For example, did you know that most municipalities add chlorine to raw groundwater as a disinfectant before it reaches your home?

If municipal drinking water isn’t treated by a water filtration system—like reverse osmosis—it can smell and taste like a swimming pool! Gross. Also, did you know that a Reverse Osmosis System will remove virtually all bad tastes, odours, and dissolved minerals in your water—nearly 100% removal of the yucky stuff!
