Water Softeners

Water Softeners for Crowsnest Pass & Lethbridge

With good water so easily available in our homes and businesses, it’s easily to take for granted the process that goes into making running water useable. That is until you find yourself having to use hard water for everyday tasks. From making use more soap to achieve a lesser level of cleanliness to stains on dishes and tiles that don’t wash off, hard water can make even the most mundane chores difficult.  At Holmes Ecowater, we are dedicated to bringing good, clean water to residences and businesses in Crownest Pass & Lethbridge with the use of water softeners.

Why Use Water Softeners?
Though it might seem inoffensive, hard water can be damaging to your possessions and property. Because hard water has a high content of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals, the performance of appliances and pipes that are designed with soft water in mind can suffer.

Limescale accumulation from hard water passing through can clog the pipes in your home or business, causing a loss in water pressure and requiring extensive cleaning. This same limescale can taint your dishwasher, your showerhead, your washing machine, and any other water-dependant appliances, reducing their life span and forcing you to make costly repairs or replacements that could have been avoided by simply improving the quality of the water passing through the pipes.

Water Softeners for Your Home
when it comes to your household, the quality of the water should be a major source of concern.  Bathing, and maintaining a clean living environment for your family depends on the water you have access to. On top of keeping your appliances and pipes in good working condition, better water can help you save on your heating bill and can help you waste less product when cleaning. By having access to softer water, less detergent, soap, shampoo, and other cleaning products are needed to obtain the results you seek.

Holmes Ecowater is committed to providing cleaner water for Lethbridge residences by offering water softeners to tackle your hard water problems. By entrusting your water needs to our team, you will receive a personalized suggestion based on your family’s needs.  We offer a range of EcoWater water softeners for Crowsnest Pass and Lethbridge homes, including:

Solar Natural Salts for Softeners
Just as the quality of your water conditioner matters, the quality of the materials used in the softening of your hard water is paramount in the performance of your equipment. With over 50 years of experience in the industry, Holmes Ecowater only trusts the best products on the market. That’s why recommend Diamond Crystal® Solar Naturals® Water Softener Salt Crystals.

These crystals:

  • Contain up to 99.6% pure salt
  • Are made naturally with sun, wind and time®
  • Are naturally white and opaque
  • Have a low insoluble content
  • Minimize accumulation tank residue
  • Are recommended for use in all water softeners

Though the cost of the product is higher than other types of salts, Diamond Crystal® Solar Naturals® Water Softener Salt Crystals are worth the investment as they are guaranteed not to bridge. Should bridging occur, the team of Holmes Ecowater will clean out your water softener at no cost to you.

Softener Service
As with any other equipment, water softeners do need to be serviced from time to time. If your softener is using a lot of salt, water, or you are experiencing calcium buildup on appliances and your soaps and shampoos are not lathering in the shower. Periodically, the water softener in your Crowsnest Pass home or business needs a cleaning and rebidding and overall maintenance to ensure that it continues to condition the hard water flowing in. This seemingly simple step can help extend the life of your equipment, helping you get the most use out of your new or old unit. Trust the professionals at Holmes Ecowater to service the water softener for a hassle-free and thorough resin rebedding. If you feel your water isn’t soft you can bring it in and we will test it onsite.
