"Watersmart installed a softener at my daughter's new house and I was there during the process. The installers were fast, friendly and courteous. They explained the process to install it and gave her clear instructions on how to use it. They did not leave until they were sure that there were no issues. They did a thorough clean up after they were done. My wife and I were looking for a new softener at the same time so we went to their store on Davenport. We had the same friendly service with no effort to sell us up to a larger model. We got a great deal and they installed it the next day, removing our old tank and unit. Great service, great prices, and very skilled technicians. I would recommend them to anyone considering a new or replacement unit."

Kitchener has a unique water challenge as it has some of the hardest water in all of Canada. Kitchener has a water hardness level of 20-32 grains per gallon in most of the city, versus the national avarege in Canada of 10.5 grains per gallon.

There is a limited number of locations or stores that carry fridge filters. If you need to replace your fridge filter look no further. Unlike big box stores that only sell the most common filters, we carry fridge filters for every make and model of refrigerator on the market. If you do find a fridge filter we don't currently carry, we will get it in and add it to our offerings. By buying fridge filters from us you can get free shipping, better pricing, and a more knowledgeable staff.
We are a proud, family-owned Canadian company, have been in business for over 20 years, and have a customer-friendly returns policy.
We provide free shipping on our fridge filters when you purchase them online. This can result in significant savings over the life of your fridge. If you need to replace your fridge filter every 6 months to a year, that could be a total of 15-40 times you will need a new filter. If average shipping is even just $9.99 per order that is an extra $150.00 to $400,00. If shipping is $15.00 per order that would be an additional cost of $225.00 to $600.00 over the lifetime of your fridge.
We use Canada Post standard shipping for quick and reliable delivery. To learn more about how long it will take specifically for your shipping address give us a call.

Bottled Water Delivery
Bottled water is produced with the highest possible quality controls - something that is not always an option depending on where you live.
Unfiltered municipal tap water may have high mineral contents, or contain other contaminants. Well water may not even meet municipal standards and should be tested at least once a year for possible contaminants.
In areas where there is a boil water advisory, bottled water is usually the best solution due to its purity.
Bottled water meets consistently high standards. Take advantage of our free home delivery service in order to have pure water always available.
One of the advantages of using bottled water is the water cooler. A water cooler is essential as a repository for your water jug, however, it is more than just a stand. A water cooler can conveniently control the temperature of your water, allowing you to have hot or cold water available at any moment. Tap water does not provide you with this option.
Reverse osmosis is a water treatment process in which water is forced through a semi-permeable membrane that has very small holes or "pores." Clean water passes through and impurities that are too big to pass through the membrane are left behind and flushed away. According to Engineering at Dartmouth, reverse osmosis was actually invented by French physicist Jean Antoine Nollet in the eighteenth century. However, it wasn't until 1969 that it started to be used as a commercial application when Dean Spatz used the process to separate maple sugar from sap. From there it has become a key process used in water filtration.
What is the Best Reverse Osmosis System to Purchase?
There are many different brands of reverse osmosis systems available for purchase. It is important to buy one that is high quality and also includes a carbon filter to block dangerous chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine which are small enough to pass through the reverse osmosis filter. At WaterSmart we sell, install, and service Duro Reverse Osmosis systems. These high-quality systems come with both a pre- and a post- carbon filter. Click here to learn more about our high quality Duro system or contact us today to see what is the best system for you.
