Best Water Softener Installation & Replacement Services In Calgary

Calgary’s water is considered hard because of the amount of calcium and magnesium in the water from the Bow and Elbow Rivers. Water is considered “hard” when it contains a high level of dissolved metals and minerals, such as magnesium and calcium. Even though hard water is safe for consumption in most cases, you may want to consider having a water softener installed. A water softener is a device that helps remove excess minerals, leaving you with cleaner, healthier water.

Water Filtration Systems Calgary

“Hard” water doesn’t just taste unpleasant, it can also cause damage to your appliances, leave mineral and calcium deposits on your pipes, faucets, tubs, sinks and fixtures, and can lead to adverse health effects.

That’s why the experts at Shift Air Mechanical recommend installing a water filtration system to improve the cleanliness of your water supply.  We understand just how important pure water is for you and your family, and we’re here to assist you in choosing the right filtration system that best meets your needs.

Types of Water Filtration We Service

To help you identify your existing water treatment system or to help you choose the new system which will best fit your needs, we have provided information about the following three types of water purification and water filtration systems.

Point Of Use Filters

The most common and cheapest water filtration option for your home is a faucet filtration system or point of use filter. Point-of-use systems are placed near one fixture or appliance and filter its water, for example a kitchen faucet. They utilize a charcoal filter to remove contaminants from tap water, leaving it healthier and tasting better than ever. 

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis systems remove up to 99% of salts, bacteria, and pollutants in water. They include a tank that is typically situated under the sink. While osmosis is a naturally occurring process, reverse osmosis requires a pump that is used to reverse the effects. Water molecules will pass through the semi-permeable membrane and contaminates are left behind. 

Whole-home Filtration

The ultimate filter system for your home is a whole house water filtration system. This system treats all the water entering your home. So, whether you’re in the kitchen cooking, in the bathroom bathing, or your laundry room washing, you can rest assured that your water is treated before it gets to you.
