At Blue Wave Plumbing we can supply and install water treatment systems. The most common water treatment appliance that we supply and install is a water softener. The water hardness in Calgary is 15 grains per gallon. moderately hard water is bout 6 grains per gallon and extremely hard water is about 34 grains per gallon so Calgary is roughly in the middle. The benefits of a water softener are:

  • Soft water is easier on your skin
  • Less soap build up on shower and tub walls
  • Less soap is needed in the shower, laundry and to wash dishes
  • Fixtures will have less wear and tear and will last longer
  • Hot water heaters will last longer
