2016 Manitoba Marathon Announcement

18 - May2016

World of Water is very excited to announce that we will once again be the official water supplier of the 2016 Manitoba Marathon.

The Manitoba Marathon has been an important part of our community for decades, and as World of Water celebrates our 40th Anniversary in 2016 we can truly appreciate the commitment and dedication that is required to maintain such a high standard of excellence.

There is an exciting new twist this year, as for the first time in over 30 years the Manitoba Marathon has reversed the course route. Running the course in reverse will create the optimal ‘runner’ experience throughout the entirety of the course with shade being provided in all the right places.

World of Water will be all over the course as always, providing our DewDrop Distilled water. We will also be located at the Start Line this year allowing the runners to have the opportunity to fill their personal water bottles prior to the race with the ‘Purest Water Possible’.

On the day of the Marathon, World of Water utilizes 17 trucks and with the help of over 70 employees we are able to donate 40,000lbs of water. This year’s race will once again be held on Father’s Day with is June 19, 2016.

On behalf of all the staff at World of Water we would like to wish the dedicated runners, volunteers and sponsors a very successful race. Good luck and be safe.

Use Distilled Water with your CPAP Machine

26 - Mar2016

Use distilled water to help keep the humidifier chamber clean and mineral deposit free. Tap water should not be used as it will leave hard white mineral deposits in the chamber as the water evaporates, or it may lead to mold growth. Cases of lung disease have been connected to using contaminated well water in a CPAP humidifier.* Source 

It will be important to clean the chamber each morning, do not leave standing water in the chamber between uses.

The 2015 boil-water advisory

28 - Jan2016

On January 27, 2015 the City of Winnipeg was placed under a boil-water advisory -this set off  an unprecedented 48 hours at all World of Water locations. It started at approximately 6:00pm on the 27th, World of Water locations were closed for the day, but as the news broke regarding the advisory we realized that we needed to head back to our Stores. As stories were coming out of grocery stores running out of water, the amount of customers coming into our Stores that night increased. We worked until almost midnight the night of the 27th just to ensure that we had enough product for the next day.

 Our focus was simple- to make sure that anyone who was in need of water, received it. It was not about the sales for those two days, it was making sure our community was taken care of.  We supplied water to WRHA and a variety of hospitals, hotel chains, fast-food restaurants, daycares and schools as well as the general public. 

We have to commend the people of Winnipeg as the wait times in our Stores were 3-4 times longer than at any other time of the year-just due to the high volume of traffic, yet our (new and existing) customers were more than understanding as they patiently waited for water.

We also have to give huge praise to our staff, as without them handling delivery requests and taking care of customers in our Stores we would not have been able to do what we did that day.

Once the boil-water advisory was lifted and things returned back to normal, we were able to reflect on the events of those two days. It goes without saying that it the most hectic and face-paced environment that World of Water has ever seen but it is also a day that will not be forgotten anytime soon!
