User avatar Hello:
It would be impossible online to analyze your particular water as each location has a different mixture of minerals and bacteria in its water. Since you live in Ottawa I have a resource you can contact to learn about the water in your area. Here it is:

Water Quality and Health Bureau
2720 Riverside Drive, AL 6604B
Ottawa, Ontario, K1A 0K9

Fax: (613) 952-2574
Email: water_eau@hc-sc.gc.ca

I hope this helps.
Regards,
Carolyn
