What is Hard Water

Hard water is water that contains high levels of minerals. Hard water forms when water makes its way through deposits of limestone, chalk or gypsum. These rocks are mainly made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates, bicarbonates and sulfates. As a result, the water typically comes to contain high amounts of calcium and magnesium.

Issues with Hard Water

While drinking hard water may have some moderate health benefits, it can have many negative effects in your home and daily life.

Over time, mineral deposits from hard water can build up in pipes, fixtures such as shower heads, appliances such as kettles and large equipment such as boilers. These mineral deposits form limescale, otherwise known just as ‘scale,’ in things like kettles and water heaters. Mineral build-up can cause clogs which can damage equipment, leading to expensive repairs or replacements.

In addition, it is difficult to wash things with soap and detergents in hard water as it prevents a good lather. This can cause people to use more soap. Hard water deposits can also form on dishes, making it less than ideal to wash dishes and do laundry with hard water.

Water Softening FAQs

This section contains some common questions about water softening, along with answers to explain the technology and benefits of water softening.

What are the Signs That Show That Water is Hard and Requires Water Softening?

You can do the lather/froth test. While your tap water is running, agitate your soap and see how well it lathers.

If the soap does not form lather easily with water, your water has become hard. In case you are not sure about this, Son-Rise Plumbing & Gasfitting services has a solution to this as we employ different techniques to detect the hardness of water.

What are the Effects of Hard Water?

Hard water, if left untreated, can lead to a breakdown of pipes, equipment and involve costly damage.

Scaling from hard water can lead to:

  • Clogged pipes: Scale cannot always be seen and can build up in tough to reach places, making it difficult to remove. Hence, they form clogs over time and impede the smooth running of water. This shortens the life of flushing toilets.
  • Damage of expensive equipment: Hard water can damage your water heaters or equipment like boilers due to mineral deposition.
  • Problems with everyday washing: Washing clothes with hard water can require an excess amount of soap. Similarly, washing your hair with such water will make your hair rougher and harder to detangle because of the insoluble minerals.

The good news is that Son-Rise Plumbing & Gasfitting provides the most reliable water softener installation and water softener repair in Calgary. Our group of experts recommend the perfect solution you need for your home or for your laundry.

What is a Water Softener Device?

Water softener device removes the calcium and magnesium with its beads and releases sodium into the water. Gradually, the beads collect a large amount of mineral deposits and require recharging. Recharging is washing the softening material with sodium to enable ion exchange while the water becomes soft and useful.

How do I Choose a Water Softener System

You need an appropriate water softener system to remove the hardness of water. You have to consider the regular maintenance fee and the cost of installation and operation.
