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. 

The Hard Truth About Hard Water in Calgary

Hard water contains dissolved minerals like magnesium and calcium, and while these minerals are not harmful, they coat everything that the water comes in contact with. When we take showers, hard water can prevent soap and shampoo from lathering and absorb into our hair leaving it feeling dull and heavy.

Hard water also leaves a white scaly residue in sinks, showers, kettles and appliances which requires more labour intensive cleaning and more money spent on cleaning products over time.

Hard water affects more than appearances and a concern is that it can corrode plumbing and hot water tanks sending you shopping for a new hot water heater sooner than expected.

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.
