DID YOU KNOW THAT WATER HEATERS OPERATING ON HARD WATER USE UP TO 30% MORE ENERGY?
Calgary Water Softeners
Living in Calgary we are fortunate to experience mountain fresh air and clean drinking water, but unfortunately, this fresh water has high levels of calcium and magnesium which cause hard water. Hard water can leave our hair and skin feeling dry and itchy, coat sinks and showers with white scaly residue, cause dull looking laundry and reduce the lifespan of our appliances. If you are experiencing issues with hard water in Calgary, installing a water softener may be the solution for your home.
How Hard is Calgary Water?
Calgary water hardness varies by region. North Calgary’s water supply is from the Bow River, while south Calgary’s water supply is from the Elbow River. Residents living in the south of Calgary may have harder water than those living in the north due to the higher concentration of calcium carbonate in the Elbow River.
What Can I Do if I Have Hard Water?
If you have hard water, an easy solution is to install a water softener in your home. A water softener is a unit with a mineral tank that holds a brine solution made from water softener salt. The hard water cycles through the unit which pulls the magnesium and calcium from the water. There are also saltless water softeners and reverse osmosis systems that soften your hard water.
