Hard water can be tough on your Springbank, AB, area plumbing system, laundry, and even your hair.

Thankfully there is an easy fix for hard water, and our expert plumbers at Alpha Plumbing can assist you with it.

Water Softener Installation

We install and maintain water softener systems throughout Sprinkbank and surrounding areas that eliminate magnesium and calcium, the minerals found in hard water.

We are a full-service plumbing company that offers a Care Plan, repairs, and installs plumbing fixtures, pipes, drains, water softeners, and filtering systems.

Our team of expert plumbers at Alpha Plumbing are available for emergency repairs.  Contact us to inspect your plumbing system and gain peace of mind.

Problems With Hard Water

High levels of calcium and magnesium in your water can build up and leave limescale deposits on your plumbing fixtures, pipes, and appliances, shortening their life span and interfering with water pressure, and causing blockages.

Soap does not lather well in hard water and leaves scum on fixtures, shower doors, and sinks. Hard water may leave stains on glassware and dishes and leave laundry looking dingy and feeling stiff.

That hard water soap scum can irritate sensitive skin, making it feel dry and itchy.

Benefits of Installing a Whole-House Water Softener System

At Alpha Plumbing, we always aim to recommend products and services that benefit your household. Here are a few advantages of using a water softener:

  • Appliances, such as your water heater, will be less prone to limescale buildup and last longer.
  • Glassware and dishes will look cleaner without hard water stains, and laundry will be brighter.
  • Soap scum on bathroom and kitchen surfaces will be a thing of the past.
  • Blocked pipes from limescale buildup will be less likely.
  • Your skin may feel and look better after bathing with softened water.

You can count on our team to correctly install your water softening system so that you enjoy the most value from it. At Alpha Plumbing, we offer flexible monthly payments to help you purchase your plumbing system.

How Do Water Softeners Work?

The typical water softener replaces calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. As water enters the water softener's main tank, it passes through resin beads that have absorbed sodium.

The calcium and magnesium in the water are positively charged and attracted to the negatively charged resin. They cling to the beads while the softened water leaves the tank for distribution through your Alberta home's plumbing system.

The system must be cleaned every few days with salt water to recharge the resin beads and remove the mineral deposits. A separate tank holds salty water for the cleaning and recharging process, and connects to the main softening tank. A valve controls the amount of water used during cleaning and recharging.

The sodium tank typically can be refilled with salt pellets. Some softening systems use potassium rather than salt.

Water Softeners Versus Water Conditioners

You may have heard about salt-free alternatives to water softeners called water conditioners. Water conditioners make the minerals less abrasive but do not remove them all.

Although water conditioners can significantly improve your water, scaling still is possible.

If you want to eliminate calcium and magnesium from your water, we recommend installing a water softener.

Some homeowners are interested in water conditioners because they require less maintenance than water softeners. If maintenance is your concern, let our qualified pros at Alpha Plumbing handle the work for you. We can install and maintain your system while you enjoy softened water in your home.
