Hard Water In or Around Ottawa? We Can Help!

If you’ve got hard water, a water softener is an easy and quick way to increase your quality of life! That might sound dramatic, but hard water damages your hair and can cause dry, itchy skin and acne.

On top of that, hard water affects your plumbing system and water appliances.

All this being said, these are only the things that are proven. Hard water and its effects are constantly being studied because of the potential effects certain minerals and metals can have on our minds and body.

Water Softener Installation Services

What is a Water Softener?

A water softener is a water filtration system that removes high concentrations of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals from hard water, making the water soft.

A water softener is installed in your home where it can be connected to your water source. As water flows through the water softener system, calcium, magnesium, and other minerals are filtered out, and the soft water is then distributed throughout your home.

Compared to hard water, soft water is better for your skin, hair, clothes, plumbing fixtures, dishes, plumbing appliances, and more!

What is Hard Water?

Hard water is water that has high mineral content. Water becomes hard as rainwater travels through the ground. As it moves through soil and rock, water absorbs minerals and becomes harder.

Eventually, this water becomes a part of the water supply.

Although minerals are essential to sustaining life, too many minerals can be a bad thing.

14 Negative Effects of Hard Water

Do You Need A Water Softener?

Is a new water softener installation necessary for your home and water supply?

Many homeowners believe that the water softener system cost outweighs the value. However, if your home has hard water, then a water softener is definitely worth considering as it offers countless benefits to you, your home, and your wallet.

That being said, Ottawa water is considered soft water. However, well water is often very hard.

But even if your home uses municipal water in Ottawa, you can benefit from a water softener as there are still hard minerals in the water supply, albeit much less than well water.

10 Signs You May Need A Water Softener System

  • Dry itchy skin, especially after bathing
  • Dry, brittle hair
  • Stained sinks and bathtubs
  • Cloudy glassware
  • Scale buildup on plumbing fixtures
  • Faded laundry that doesn’t feel soft
  • Smelly laundry
  • Soap and shampoo doesn’t lather
  • Ring around your toilet water line
  • Your water supply is a well

We’ll Find You The Water Softener You Need

The amount of dissolved minerals in your water combined with the water usage in your home will guide us towards the right water softener for you!

A water softener that is too small will struggle to keep up and will wear out fast!

A water softener that is too big, on the other hand, won’t regenerate often enough – which also isn’t good!

That’s why John The Plumber is committed to finding you the perfect water softener system for your needs!

How We Work

If you’re wondering “What water softener do I need?”, we can help!

Water Hardness Testing

An important factor is your water quality!

How many dissolved minerals are in your drinking water?

Unlike many water treatment specialists, John The Plumber arrives on site with the testing kit on hand.

This way, we can show you your water hardness in realtime! No more waiting for samples to be sent out, received, and tested!

Supplying The Right Machine For You and Your Home

Once we know all the variables above, it’s easy to find the perfect water softeners for your home.

We’ll provide you with options and the water softener system cost for each available option.

Once you decide on the perfect water system for yourself, it won’t be long before your new water softener install is done and your drinking water is as good or better than bottled water!

How Big Is Your Home and How many bathrooms?

How much capacity for the right water softener system also depends on how many bathrooms your home has.

The number of bathrooms helps narrow down your water usage, and installing a water softener is best done with the best water usage information available!

Once we know the important variables at play, it won’t be long before your water hardness is that of softened water!

How Many People In Your Home?

More people in your home means more water being used and consumed.

If you use more water in your household, you’ll need a bigger water softener capacity!
