Remove Radon With Airwell

Does your well water have a foul smell? Does it stain your dishes and laundry? Are you concerned about naturally occurring radon levels in your residential well water?
  • Airwell is designed to treat residential groundwater like mother nature intended, by supplying the aquifer with a safe and cleansing supply of atmospheric oxygen.
  • As the Airwell system feeds oxygen to your well water, it strips away trapped gases while eliminating odors and unwanted mineral elements.
  • Unlike standard aeration systems, Airwell eliminates the need for costly and inconvenient chemicals or home treatment processes.
  • MacKinnon Water Solutions was a lead partner in the development of the patented Airwell technology.
  • MacKinnon Water Solutions installs, repairs, maintains and services Airwell systems for homes and businesses throughout Ontario and Quebec.

  • For optimum care of your water treatment system, we offer service packages featuring scheduled preventative maintenance visits to keep your equipment running at full capacity year-round.

Solution Series Water Conditioner

Solution Series water treatment systems by Greenway Water Technologies combine patented self-chlorinating technology with advanced electronics to perform like four units in one: softening, removing iron and manganese, and raising low pH levels. This self-sanitizing system also controls odors caused by nuisance bacteria and minor sulfur conditions.

Advance Series Ultraviolet Rack Systems

Greenway UV systems are designed with compact, high-grade stainless steel chambers that house efficient, colour-coded UV lamps. UV water disinfection is a natural process which does not add any chemicals into your water, nor alter the water chemistry. Ultraviolet light energy inactivates harmful microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses (i.e. Ecoli) by disrupting the DNA, effectively preventing them from multiplying and causing illness.

LE Series Water Softener

The LE Series water softener is designed to provide high flow rates over a wide range of applications. State-of-the-art technology helps reduce film build-up on your fixtures and wall tiles, hard-water spotting on glassware and dishes, and scale build-up on water lines, dishwashers, boilers and hot water tanks. Use up to 50% less detergent and soap, lower your energy and operational costs, reduce your use of cleaning agents and chemicals, and protect your septic system from chemical waste.

Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Systems

Reverse Osmosis (RO) offers a convenient, affordable, environmentally sound alternative to bottled water. While today’s tap water can contain a broad range of impurities and contaminants, this system tackles the broadest spectrum of water impurities possible. RO filtration reduces impurities from bacteria, viruses, pesticides and odour while dissolving metals like lead, arsenic and iron.

LE Series Backwash Filters

Backwash filters are an environmentally friendly way of removing iron, hydrogen sulphide and odors from your water supply. The LE Series requires minimal operating costs, in most cases requiring only water to regenerate. And since no chemicals are discharged to your septic system, the process leaves a small footprint.

Optimize Your Pressure System

Are you forced to manage your water use because your existing system can’t deliver a reliable water flow?
  • Traditional well water systems use a single-speed motor and pump to move water from the well to your home. With a regular pressure system you may experience fluctuations in your water pressure when two or or fixtures are in use at the same time.
  • Fluctuating water pressure and flow can be further affected by low well levels, increased water usage, a new addition or the installation of a new irrigation system.
  • With the right pressure system you can stop scheduling your well water use, while adding value and efficiency to the operation of your home or business.
  • Ask us about a regular versus constant pressure system. We’ll advise as to which one is best suited for your home or business.
  • By installing a constant pressure system, MacKinnon Water Solutions can put your system on cruise control, changing the speed of your well water pump to match any demand to ensure constant and consistent water flow.

Align Your Water Tank and Pump

How do you choose the tank that best suits your well water needs?
  • Your tank creates a reservoir of well water, giving the pump much needed rest between cycles, while ensuring a ready supply of water each time you turn on the tap.
  • It’s important to align your pump with your tank, to extend the life and safety of your water system.
  • MacKinnon Water Solutions supplies, installs, replaces and repairs most types of well water tanks, including:
    Flex-Lite Composite Water Storage Tank – for indoor applications
    Well-Rite Composite Water Storage Tank – for outdoor use
    Jet-Rite 2 Steel Water Storage Tank – for outdoor use and irrigation applications
  • These tanks feature the latest in field-proven controlled-action diaphragm design. When it comes to performance and durability, they can’t be beat.

How Old Is Your Water Pump?

How old is the pump in your well? When was the last time you had it serviced?
  • Your submersible pump forces water to the surface. If it’s more than 20 years old, you’d be wise to have it checked. Avoid the inconvenience of having to go without water.
  • A new well water pump improves efficiency and protects against wear, ensuring high performance in even the harshest conditions and a longer lifespan.
  • MacKinnon Water Solutions supplies, installs, replaces and repairs most types of pump systems in new or existing wells.
  • For new installations, we recommend the state-of-the-art Franklin Electric line of FPS 3200 Series submersible water pump.
  • Whether you’re a homeowner, contractor or farmer, we’ll conduct a site visit and suggest the submersible pump you need including optional upgrades.

Prevent Well Contamination

Is your drilled well threatened by contamination because its cap is contained underground?
  • Prior to 1985, before the introduction of the pitless adapter, drilled wells were commonly capped below the frost line in a concrete pit. But if the pit’s not kept dry at all times, your water supply is vulnerable to contamination.
  • MacKinnon Water Solutions will upgrade your well with a pitless adapter by extending the casing so the cap sits above ground level. We’ll mound the surrounding earth so that potentially harmful contaminants and debris flow away from the well casing.
  • Upgrading your well with a pitless adaptor will protect water quality, and make it easier to access for maintenance and repair.

Hydrofracturing Improves Yield

Is your existing well delivering poor water volume, far below the needs of your home, business or agri-food operation?
  • MacKinnon Water Solutions offers safe and affordable hydrofracturing services to improve and refresh existing low-yield drilled wells.
  • Hydrofracturing involves the injection of highly pressurized water into an existing well casing, opening up blocked water seams and tapping into new ones connected to the main aquifer.
  • Hydrofracturing will increase your well water safety, flow rates and system life span.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are the steps to getting a well installed?

First step after contacting our company, a site survey will be required to determine the well location and to make sure access to the location is sufficient for our equipment (over hanging trees, firm ground, etc.)  We also have to make sure we are in compliance with Ministry Regulations, such as septic systems and road allowances. Once that is determined the next step is to schedule in and book the drilling of the well. On the completion of the well, a pump test will be done (usually not the same day). Final step is the scheduling of the pump and pressure system.

How long does it take to get a well constructed?

On average, half a day upwards of two days depending on the depth.

What is an Environmental Package?

The Environmental package that will appear on your invoice, consists of the vermin proof cap for the top of the casing, grouting of the 10″ hole in accordance with MOE standards, and a drive shoe that stays at the bottom of your well.

How deep is my well going to be?

MacKinnon Water Solutions Ltd. bases their quotes on depths of the wells in your property’s  immediate area. Sometimes, your neighbours well is a good indicator of the depth that your well could possibly be. There have been instances where neighbouring properties have wells that widely vary to yours, either by being shallow or deeper than yours. Since it is impossible to see what is in the ground, this is the only way an estimated depth can be calculated.

Will the driller go deeper if water is found at a shallow depth?

No, once MacKinnon Water Solutions finds water, they will stop drilling as long as there is a sufficient amount of water to supply a residential building.

What is the difference between a constant pressure system and a conventional system?

Constant pressure supplies a constant desired pressure throughout the building with little to no pressure loss, where as a Conventional system’s pressure fluctuates.

Does the price of the well include the pump and pressure system?

No, because not all wells are the same. That is why a more accurate quote can be given after the well and pump test is complete.

Do I need to be involved for any of the well/pump/pressure system?

Customer involvement is not required unless for your own curiosity. The only step that may require customer attendance is during the pump and pressure system install for access to buildings for the install team.

Can I schedule my well for a specific day?

Although we try our best to schedule your well for specific days, unfortunately jobs can either take longer or quicker than expected, so this would impact the scheduling.

Can I build something to cover/hide my well?

Yes, as long as it is easily removable for service work. We also have Mock Rocks in store for viewing and purchase.

When should I take a water sample for potability?

We generally recommend taking your potability sample two weeks after the well has been drilled. You can contact your local Health Unit for details.

My water sample came back bad, is that normal?

If you did not receive any actual coliform or e-coli bacteria numbers and receive a letter stating “overgrown with bacteria often found in the environment”, they might not have gotten to the testing on time, or there could also be some clarity issues, such as possible iron in the water.

When should I consider water treatment with my new well?

It usually takes two weeks or so of consistent use for the water to become balanced. From there we can take a sample for the possibility of water treatment options.

Is there any yearly maintenance required for a drilled well system?

Normally, there is no set maintenance required for your drilled well.
