Beware Door-to-Door Water Heater/Water Filtration Salespeople

Beware Door-to-Door Water Heater/Water Filtration Salespeople

Brampton (ON) – January 12, 2015 – The Region of Peel advises residents to be cautious when approached by anyone offering to inspect or sell a hot water heater or water filtration system. Neither the Region nor its contractors knock on residents’ doors to offer this service.

Recently, residents in Brampton and Mississauga have reported that individuals from a filtration company have attempted to gain entry to their homes to inspect their hot water heaters or sell a water filtration system or perform water tests. The Region would like to emphasize that these individuals do not work for the Region of Peel or its contractor Neptune Technology Group Canada.

Currently, the Region of Peel is conducting a mandatory Water Meter Replacement Program to replace outdated meters that have been in service for 20 years or more. The Program will begin in Mississauga on January 19, 2015, and be completed in early December 2015. The Region has contracted Neptune Technology Group Canada to complete this work.

Mississauga residents who must participate in the mandatory Water Meter Replacement Program will be contacted by mail with a letter that instructs them to book an appointment with Neptune to have this work completed. All work will be done on an appointment basis. Neptune representatives will only contact residents at their door in the event that an appointment has not been booked.

All Neptune Water Meter Installers are uniformed, carry proper and visible identification and have Region of Peel decals on or in their vehicles. Residents are strongly advised to view this identification before permitting the service person to enter their home.

The Regional Municipality of Peel was incorporated in 1974 on the principle that certain community and infrastructure services are most cost-effectively administered over a larger geographic area. The Region of Peel serves more than one million residents in the Cities of Mississauga and Brampton and the Town of Caledon.
