Do I Need A Water Softener?
If you live in Calgary, you may know that the water you use everyday is sourced from the Rocky Mountains. This water is considered ‘hard’ as it contains high concentrations of magnesium and calcium. Although this water is not harmful to your health, it can be for your plumbing system.
‘Hard’ water can lead to problems in your plumbing system due to build up in the system: deposits of minerals from the water block the flow of water. The water blockages can result in decreased efficiency and lifespan of fixtures and plumbing appliances, which in turn, increases energy bills.
Luckily there are solutions to treat the water your family will use everyday.
What is ‘Hard’ Water?
Hard water is water with an increased concentration of dissolved minerals in it, such as calcium and magnesium. As water flows underground, it may pickup minerals from the rocks as it flows by them. The water in Calgary comes from the rocky mountains, where it picks up lots of mineral content. Hard water is harmless for humans, but not harmless for your plumbing network.
Benefits of Treating Your Water With a Water Softener
There are many reason to treat your ‘hard’ water with a water softener. The most important reason is the condition of your plumbing system and protecting it from build up. Water softening in Calgary can:
- Increase the lifespan of your plumbing network, water heater and other appliances.
- Ensure you get the maximum water flow from taps and shower heads.

- Preemptively protect your plumbing network from unnecessary issues.
- Decrease the amount of soap and detergent used while also promoting soft, shiny hair and skin!
