Water Softeners & Conditioners for Calgary Homes

Softer Skin, Softer Hair, & a Cleaner Home

Hard water is a term used to describe water with a high degree of mineral content. Because Calgary’s water comes from the Bow and Elbow rivers, our water is unusually high in mineral deposits. To put it more simply, Calgary has naturally hard water.

Hard water prevents laundry detergent, dish soap and other cleaners from creating the lather that helps dissolve dirt and grime. A film of minerals is left on the surface of laundry, dishes, skin and hair. Hard water can leave skin feeling dry and itchy. Hair can feel heavy and lacklustre, laundry whites can look grey and colours can appear dull. Appliances and plumbing fixtures become harder to clean and begin to show evidence of mineral build up.

Hard water can leave gritty mineral deposits on dishes, appliances, plumbing, and more. As a result, they can become damaged and worn out faster than normal, leading to expensive repairs or replacements.

Ace Plumbing can improve your water quality with water softening and conditioning systems.

Water Softener & Water Conditioner FAQs

Both water softeners and water conditioners will help prevent mineral deposits from building up on appliances, plumbing, and more. The major difference between them is how they do it.

A water conditioner is sometimes also called a saltless water softener. These devices will alter the minerals in the water, making it more difficult for them to stick to surfaces like pipes and dishes. You will still get some scale (or mineral deposits); however, you will definitely notice a decrease.

A water softener uses salt to eliminate the mineral deposits from the water completely. With the minerals removed from the water, you shouldn’t notice scale or build-up on dishes, appliances, or pipes at all.

Calgary’s water is hard, meaning you could absolutely benefit from a water softener if you don’t already have one. Signs of hard water’s effect on your home include:

  • White, powdery film on dishes and cutlery
  • Faded clothes
  • Regular plumbing problems
  • Stains in your sinks, showers, or bathtubs

The effects of water conditioners and water softeners are slightly different, but they both soften your water. If you soften your water, you might notice:

  • Softer hair
  • Skin that feels less dry
  • Easier housework
  • Longer appliance lifespans
  • Better shower water pressure
  • Cleaner dishes & cutlery

Hard water will not make you sick and is not generally damaging to your health, but it still can cause problems.

Dry skin is a common problem among Calgarians due to our dry climate. Hard water can exacerbate dry skin and cause itching, flaking, and redness.

You should also consider the damage hard water could do to your home. The scale left by minerals in hard water can shorten the lifespan of appliances like dishwashers and washing machines. You are more likely to need frequent repairs or replacements around a house that runs on hard water.
