So Long Hard Water! Water Softeners for Homes and Businesses in Edmonton

If there are brown or reddish stains in your sink and your skin has become dry and itchy, you might have a problem with hard water. Fortunately, Modern Air & Water sells and installs water softener systems that can help resolve these issues while also extending the lifespan of your water heater, plumbing and clothes. We also offer reliable maintenance and repair services for all brands of water softeners. Contact us today to learn more or schedule a service call in the Edmonton area.



How Does a Water Softener Work?

Water hardness is determined by the amount of calcium, magnesium and other minerals in your water. Over time, these minerals can harden into deposits that buildup in your pipes, faucets and appliances. By installing a water softener, you can lower the concentration of these minerals before the water flows through your plumbing.


In a water softener system, hard water flows through a filter filled with negatively charged resin beads. Since calcium and magnesium are positively charged molecules, they stick to the beads and remain trapped in the system, allowing soft water to flow out. Salt water is then used to flush the system, removing the calcium and magnesium molecules so the beads can be used again.


Signs Your Have Hard Water

It’s impossible to tell the difference between hard and soft water simply by looking at it. However, hard water can cause several problems that are easy to detect. Here are some signs to watch for:

  • Brown or reddish stains in your sink
  • Soap scum buildup in sinks and bathtubs
  • White scaling on faucets
  • White spots on dishes and glassware after being washed
  • Low water pressure and frequently clogged pipes
  • Dingy clothes that wear out quickly
  • Itchy, irritated skin and dry hair

Additionally, hard water can cause your washing machine and dishwasher to wear out prematurely, so take note if these appliances seem to need frequent repairs.

Water Softener Installation Services

Water softeners are available as whole-home systems, which will protect your entire plumbing system. In this case, it’s best to have the filter installed as close as possible to the place where water enters your home. This will ensure harmful minerals are removed from the water before it circulates through your water heater and pipes.


At Modern Air & Water, our technicians have the tools and training to properly install the full line-up of Watergroup water softener systems. We can also advise you on the best system to meet your needs and preferences.


Maintenance and Repair Services

Water softeners are relatively low maintenance, but problems can arise that affect the way the system functions. If the motor fails, salt bridges form or the filter gets clogged, you can count on our technicians to provide quick and effective repairs. Modern Air & Water offers 24/7 emergency plumbing services .


Benefits of Getting a Water Softener

Since you might be used to drinking, bathing and cleaning with hard water, here are some of the advantages of installing a water softener system in your home:

  • Healthier skin and hair. Soft water doesn’t contain minerals that irritate and dry out your skin. It also helps keep your hair strong and moisturized.
  • Softer and cleaner clothes.  The minerals in hard water can leave deposits on fabric. Clothes tend to remain in better condition if they’re washed in soft water.
  • Better tasting water. While you might be accustomed to drinking hard water, many people notice that it has a metallic or chemical taste compared to soft water.
  • Fewer plumbing repairs. Without mineral deposits forming inside your pipes, they’ll be less likely to clog and deteriorate. Plus, you won’t have to deal with hard water stains.
  • Longer-lasting appliances. Similar to your plumbing, scale buildup and mineral deposits can cause premature wear on your dishwasher and washing machine.

In other words, the investment in a quality water softener for your home can actually save you money in the long run.
