Water Softener Calgary

Prevent scale build-up in your family’s water supply.

Water in Calgary is considered ‘hard’ as it contains high concentrations of magnesium and calcium – delivered as it is from the Rockies.

While this is not dangerous to health, it can lead to problems with the plumbing system, affect the performance of appliances, and also make soap less effective.

Scale builds up in the system: deposits of ‘lime’ that can block the flow of water in pipes (as well as in shower heads and taps) and play havoc with the water heater, washing machine, and dishwasher.

This can even increase your energy bills, as appliances start to work less efficiently due to scale build-up.

But you needn’t just accept hard water for your family’s water supply.

By treating your water with a few simple measures, you can prevent scale build up, extend the life of appliances, and help to prevent plumbing issues.

Hard water can be ‘softened’ with the addition of softeners – a wide variety of brands are available through Pete the Plumber.

More extensive water treatment systems can also help to lessen the effects of excess iron or sulphur in the water, which can be problems in some parts of Calgary and the surrounding areas.
