Take Control of the Water Quality in Your Home
Even with the impressive testing and control standards used by municipal water treatment plants across Canada, water quality remains a concern. With the right home treatment system though, you can take control of the quality of the water in your home.
VIQUA Beyond Taste – Better Water at Your Fingertips
People generally install water treatment equipment because they’ve noticed something off about their water – taste, colour, odour, and mineral buildup (hard water) are the most common complaints.
But did you know that by only addressing these more obvious concerns, you’re not giving your water the full treatment it and your family, deserves?
The Complete Whole Home Water Treatment Solution Package
The VIQUA Beyond Taste Complete Home Water Treatment System, includes everything you need to treat the water coming into your home. Not only does it address the aesthetic issues (taste, smell, appearance), but it also treats microbiological contaminants and heavy metals and minerals that may be present.
The VIQUA Beyond Taste solution package includes five different treatment solutions, each one addressing a different water quality concern and providing a better than bottled water quality.
Available in Canada only.
VIQUA Beyond Taste Solution Package Includes:
- Carbon Filtration
- Water softener – reduces hard water scale
- Sediment filtration
- Ultraviolet disinfection
- Reverse Osmosis Drinking Water Filter
Your Water Should be Great Water
With the VIQUA Beyond Taste Complete home water treatment system, you can transform the water in your home.
VIQUA Beyond Taste Solution Features
- Removes hard minerals, saving your appliances and plumbing fixtures;
- Eliminates chlorine taste and odour, so no more swimming pool tap water;
- Filters out dirt and rust that could come from your pipes;
- Disinfects your water against illness-causing microbiological contaminants;
- Eradicates potentially harmful heavy metals, minerals, and chemicals.
Chlorine and chlorine byproducts are a common concern, both in terms of the taste and smell, and in terms of perceived risks to your health.
Although municipalities do a great job at managing chlorine levels within the distribution system, the interaction between the chemicals and old aging infrastructure can lead to unwanted tastes and odors in the water, as well as common byproducts like chloramines that give you that swimming pool smell.
Activated carbon is a powerful adsorbent used to remove the unwanted chlorine and chlorine byproducts from your water.
Hard water is terrible water. It’s as simple as that. Hardness minerals will coat your faucets in white flakes, leave a dirty film on your dishes, keep soap from lathering properly, and create concrete-like buildup in your plumbing and hot water appliances (which can also cost you a lot of money to fix or replace). An added benefit, the removal of residual chlorine from your water is known to prolong the life of your water softener!
To address both the chlorine in your water and the hardness, the first part of the VIQUA Beyond Taste system is a dual-purpose water softener. Not only does the media in the bottom of the tank soften your water by absorbing the calcium and magnesium that makes it hard to begin with, but the carbon in the upper part of the tank removes chlorine taste and odour that’s so common in city water. No more crusty plumbing fixtures and no more swimming pool water!
Next comes the sediment filter, which is a pretty straightforward piece of equipment. It removes dirt or rust particles in your water, making sure the water is nice and clear.
Depending on the age of the infrastructure where you live, sediment can be a significant challenge, especially when municipal work is occurring in the area. The filter isn’t fine enough to screen out other contaminants, though, like bacteria, viruses, minerals, and chemicals.
This is an often-overlooked process in residential water treatment, but one of the most critical. The removal of chlorine leaves a home with no method of disinfection. But UV disinfection is a chemical-free solution that inactivates harmful biological contaminants, including viruses, bacteria, and even chlorine-resistant organisms like Cryptosporidium and Giardia. It’s the same technology that many bottled water companies use to sterilize their product, and that many large cities around the world (including Vancouver, New York, and Paris) use to treat municipal water supplies.

The final stage of this complete home water treatment system is a reverse osmosis system, to remove dissolved solids, like heavy metals (lead, mercury, cadmium) pesticides, pharmaceuticals, radium, fluoride and sodium, a byproduct of water softening processes.
The RO system is installed under the sink, usually in the kitchen, or in the basement connected to a single faucet, to provide this additional treatment barrier at the tap most often used for drinking water.
