Frequently Asked Questions


Q: What’s the difference between a state of emergency and a public health emergency?


state of emergency can be declared by a federal, provincial, or municipal government if they believe they need to take immediate, temporary and extraordinary measures in the interest of public safety. These can be enacted during times of war, natural disasters, major accidents or disease outbreaks.

A public health emergency is declared using the province or territory’s Public Health Act, which gives a variable level of authority (depending on the province) to the chief public health official. Depending on what powers the province needs will determine which declaration they use. It’s entirely dependent on what powers are associated with that province or territory’s health or state of emergency legislation.


Q: Are new filtration installations considered “essential?”


This will depend on the situation and what water issues you are being asked to deal with.  Private wells may have an immediate need, or a customer on municipal may have a malfunctioning device that ultimately needs to be replace.  Please use your best judgement, while keeping the priority on health and safety of the consumer and your employees.


Q: Should we continue with our service contracts?


These contracts should be prioritized to those that need the service to continue to offer an essential service.  If you are just going out to change out filters because it has been 1 year, perhaps this could be deferred for 2 months.
