The Facts About Door-to-Door Water Testing

Toronto Water does not conduct door-to-door sales of any kind and does not sell, market or endorse any products.

No one coming door-to-door is authorized to make a health-based test on your water; in fact, residents should be aware that, in Ontario, only fully accredited laboratories are licensed to perform health-based tests on drinking water and results take approximately 24 to 48 hours to process.

Toronto's municipal tap water is tested several times a day to ensure it meets or exceeds the Ontario Drinking Water Quality Standards set by the province.  

Residents are advised to exercise caution when solicited for a water test and with sharing personal information with people unknown to them.

If you suspect fraud, please call Toronto Police Services at 416-808-2222 or Consumer Protection Ontario at 416-326-8800 or online.

If you have a concern about Toronto's drinking water quality, please contact 311. You can also submit a number of water-related service requests online.
