How to Know if You’ll Need Local Plumbers to Install a Water Softener


Hard water (water laced with greater than normal amounts of trace minerals like calcium and magnesium, in the form of ions) is nothing but trouble. The excess amount of minerals can wreak havoc in your plumbing; something which can be contradicted by installing a water softener. Before buying a softener, though, you must know first if you actually have hard water—in some cases, your water may already be too soft, making a water softener completely useless.
Firstly, it helps to know what a water softener actually does. Offered by local plumbing companies, like Bison Plumbing & Heating, water softeners are special appliances directly attached to your home’s water supply, designed specifically to swap out sodium ions for the excess calcium and magnesium. Water softeners are common throughout Winnipeg and other cities, though not uniform in design and function.
