The term hard water refers to water supplies that contain higher levels of minerals like magnesium, calcium and iron which can wreak havoc on appliances, plumbing and human skin over time. Water softeners remove or dilute the minerals, making the water easier on skin, pipes and appliances.

Most water softener costs are determined by a number of different factors. The type of water softener is the main factor that determines cost. Customers typically may choose between salt-based water softeners, salt-free water softeners or magnetic water softeners. The service representatives in our network are able to advise customers on which type may better meet their needs. Customers may choose between timer-based or on-demand water softeners, which vary in price as well. Often water softener costs are also impacted by how hard the water is, how much water the household uses and labour costs for professional installation and maintenance.
Soft water is better for families at home and employees at places of businesses. Installing water softeners removes mineral deposits from drinking water, leaving it fresher, cleaner and healthier to drink, and the softened water does not leave chalky deposits on cups and glasses. Bathtubs, sinks and other dishes stay shiny longer when the minerals in the waterare removed or diluted. Likewise, clothes washed in softer water come out free from spots, streaks and soapy residue which are caused by the presence of minerals in the water. Additionally, people with conditions like eczema and psoriasis will see and feel a noticeable difference in their skin with the use of water softeners.
Using water softeners to remove mineral deposits has been shown to extend the life of appliances like washing machines, dishwashers and boilers as well as central heating and air conditioning systems. Mineral deposits build up in plumbing pipes over time and cause clogs and corrosion. They can clog showerheads, rendering them virtually useless. Water softeners help to reduce or eliminate the mineral deposits, minimize clogs and corrosion in pipework and keep plumbing systems operating efficiently. Longer lasting appliances and plumbing pipes are better for the environment too, as waste is reduced and raw materials and energy used for manufacturing purposes are conserved.
When minerals are not building up on dishes, clothes, bathtubs, counters and sinks, homeowners can significantly decrease the volume of cleaning supplies they purchase and the energy expended in trying to scrub away the residue left by mineral deposits. Water softeners make it less expensive and less difficult for homeowners to keep their kitchens and bathrooms sparklingly clean. Studies have shown that water softeners also improve the efficiency of electric water heaters by 22% and gas-powered heaters by 29%. This reduces homeowners’ utility bills and makes for a cleaner, healthier environment for everyone when less energy has to be used to achieve the same result.
The presence of a water softener system tends to increase the value of a home upon resale, particularly when other homes in the area do not have water softeners. When given a choice, most people prefer softer water over hard water for bathing, cleaning and drinking. The longer lifespan of the plumbing and appliances is a major selling point as well. It is important to make sure water softener companies and their installers are licensed and come with a list of good verifiable references, as do all of the companies in our network.
Water softeners are devices that remove certain minerals from water that make it hard. These minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, can produce scale, which is a filmy, hard material that builds up on pipes, in sinks, coffee pots and any other place your water regularly touches.
If your water is producing scale or a filmy substance that you see in your sinks, in your coffee pot or other places, it could be hard water. A professional can test your water to determine its hardness.
That will depend on what you need the softener for. Drinking water softeners can be installed under the kitchen sink, while whole house softeners will need to be installed at the point where the water enters the home.
Yes. Hard water can damage any appliances that it comes into contact with, especially ones like your coffee maker, washing machine, or water heater which also apply heat. The mineral build up can damage or destroy these appliances.
This will depend on your usage and how hard the water in your area is. One of the professionals in our extended network can perform a calculation for you to ensure you purchase the right size.
