PURE WATER EVERYWHERE AT AXIOM
AXIOM residents will benefit from a premium quality water treatment system that exceeds standards set by Ontario’s Ministry of the Environment and Health Canada. This advanced system delivers water, certified 99.99% microbiologically pure, to every tap in the building.
There is no need for constant filter changes and, because the system does not require electricity or chemicals in the purification process, water and energy use is reduced. AXIOM’s purified water will also help decrease the use of bottled water, and the accompanying financial and environmental costs of transporting this product, and disposing of plastic bottles in landfills.
For AXIOM residents, enjoying high quality purified water will be safe, convenient and environmentally sensible.
