In Alberta, Pure Water is known as the province’s “pure water brand”.
A spokesperson for Pure Water told CBC News that their brand was designed to deliver clean water to consumers, not to deceive consumers into believing their water is 100 per cent pure.
“Pure Water is proud to be a Canadian brand,” she told CBC.
“It has been in business for over 70 years and it is our mission to provide the highest quality, most affordable water for Calgary residents.”
The spokesperson added that Pure Water was not currently in business in Alberta and would not comment on pricing.
The spokesperson also told CBC Calgary that they do not offer free samples of their water.
“We have no pricing in place to offer free sample,” she said.
In Calgary, the spokesperson added, “Our water is available at our stores.
We are not selling free samples, and we do not charge a service fee.”
