water softener repairHard water has higher mineral concentrations and more dissolved solids than soft water. This means that with hard water, lime deposits tend to build up in hot water pipes and water heaters. This scaling decreases water heater efficiency and can cause high utility bills. Installing a water softener is a good way to avoid damage to your pipes and appliances and reduce your utility bills.

There are actually many benefits to having a water softener. Softening removes the taste of iron from your water along with any unpleasant odors. When you bathe with soft water, your skin will be healthier and softer. Additionally, you will no longer have problems with iron deposits and hard scale buildup in your shower or tub.


If you’ve been thinking of having a water softener installed, be sure to give Ottawa¬†Plumbing a call. Our professional installation service is quick and we use a simple, single-tank design. When you hire us to install your water softener professionally, you can be sure that it is properly installed and connected to your water line. We can help you decide whether you want your water softener to serve the whole house or only specific spigots. For example, many people do not soften water used in the kitchen or outdoors.

You are sure to be pleased with the many positive results you will experience when you begin using softened water. For example, when you do a load of white laundry it will stay white (or become whiter) rather than turning orange. This is because your water softener will remove mineral deposits from the water. The water you drink will also taste better for this reason.

If you already have a water softener installed but don’t feel it is working correctly, let us know. We can troubleshoot it and make repairs or recommendations to help you get the best results possible. You’ll be happy to know that the new, modern, simplified units we install do not need the large brine tank that was once necessary for water softening. Our units are far more efficient than the old-fashioned kind, and they use a lot less salt. After installation, our tech will test your new unit thoroughly to be sure it is working correctly.

Give us a call to find out how you can enjoy fresh, clean, soft water in your home! We’ll be happy to make an appointment and discuss your options. When it comes to installation, rest assured we will take care of all the details promptly and professionally.
