Water Dr Inc. is one of the leading providers of water treatment services in Canada, trained by the Alberta Onsite Wastewater Management Association (AOWMA) to design, install, and repair all types of septic tank systems. Water Dr. is certified by Alberta Municipal Affairs. We will come to your aid as septic system malfunctions and failures occur.

Water Dr Inc. offers you a wide range of expert services to address your specific needs.
Water Dr can provide you with either concrete or fibreglass septic tanks. Concrete septic tanks have been the traditional choice in Alberta. They typically last a lifetime if installed properly. Because of their weight, they are less likely to 'float' in areas that have high ground water levels.
Fibreglass septic tanks are becoming more and more popular. They will also typically last a lifetime. The advantage of fibreglass is the weight. They can be installed using lighter equipment which does less damage to your driveways and lot. Water Dr. has the experience to properly install fibreglass tanks. They will not move or float if they are installed properly.
It is often confusing for builders and property owners to select the correct septic system for their unique needs. Water Dr will do a free evaluation of your property to make sure that you spec out a septic tank system that will be cost effective and trouble free.
Water Dr. is a certified installer for environmentally friendly packaged treatment plants. These state of the art water treatment systems mean that you'll have cleaner effluent at your leach field. The system eliminates the need for unsightly above ground venting. You won't experience any unwanted odours and your system will run longer without expensive servicing. Aerobic treatment units require a smaller septic bed, which is an important feature to many rural property owners.
Packaged Sewage Treatment Plants from Water Dr. are certified as meeting the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF/ANSI) Standard 40 Class 1 for Residential Wastewater Treatment Systems. This is a requirement set out by Alberta Municipal Affairs.
Water Dr can build your packaged treatment plant using either concrete or fibreglass tanks. Water Dr offers you the Ecopod-N from Delta Environmental. The Ecopod-N is an aerobic fixed media treatment plant. It is a robust system that features trouble free operation and ease of maintenance. Delta Environmental is a worldwide leader in residential wastewater management.
Unfortunately, septic tanks and septic systems don't last forever. Water Dr. provides an inspection service to diagnose the health of your system. We can help you determine if it's time to replace or repair your equipment.
The biggest problem we come across is the leach field failing because solids in the wastewater are getting into the dose chamber. From the dose chamber, solids can get pumped out to your leach field, which causes it to plug up. Solids can get into the dose chamber if one of the internal walls in your septic tank deteriorates.

ground has proved invaluable. - Johnny Talisman, Springbank
