Cedarglen quenches thirst!

written by: Sarah McClure and Kimberley Holstein

Water is a fundamental part of our lives and the world we live in. Water makes up more than 2/3 of the weight of the human body and adequate amounts of clean water is required to stay healthy. Water is very important to the mechanics of the human body. It aids in digestion and absorption of food, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, removes toxins from the body, and regulates body temperature. Water can increase your energy level, so if you hit your mid afternoon slump, drink up!


We live in a time when tap water doesn’t cut it for most consumers. The majority of people have some sort of filtration pitcher in the fridge, water cooler system or opt to purchase bottled water. Buying bottled water is expensive and not to mention that the bottles can be a nuisance rolling around on the floor in your vehicle, overflowing in the garage because the trip to the bottle depot is long overdue or sitting on the coffee table half-full. In a society that has become conscientious of our environment why would we want to still proceed with the overuse of this option, even though plastic bottles should be placed into recycling how many of them still end up in the landfill sites! Even though the filtration pitcher is a better way to go then bottled water in a home environment, they only hold a certain amount of water and can be a burden to refill multiple times a day. The water cooler requires extra time spent refilling at selection locations and lugging it back and forth each time.

Calgary’s water treatment facility exceeds the standards and guidelines provided by the federal and provincial governments, supplying Calgarians with clean drinking water. Bacteria and viruses are removed from the water with an extensive process involving chlorine and the beginning and end of the treatment, and finding its way from the water facility to our homes. However, this process may still leave a small trace of chemicals such as herbicides, insecticides, lead and heavy metals. The Kinetico Water System provides high-quality water for consumption and significantly reduces contaminants such as lead, volatile organic compounds and chlorine.
