Get tough on hard water – with a softener!
Our technicians install one of the most reliable water softeners on the market. Our system is easy to maintain and eliminates the most common hard minerals in your plumbing.
Hard water contains a high mineral content, and it’s more common than you might realize. While hard water doesn’t pose a threat to your health (in fact, there may even be some residual health benefits from the added minerals), it can wreak havoc on your home’s plumbing and render soap and detergent less effective. So, ditch the hard water and consider a multivitamin to make up for whatever health benefits you sacrifice.
This service is currently available in Calgary, Edmonton and their surrounding areas.
Since every project is unique, our pricing is all estimate based. Don’t worry about receiving a surprise bill though. We’ll go over the cost of the entire project with you before the work begins.

Why install a water softener?
Water softeners prevent the build-up of minerals (scale) on the inside of pipes, fixtures, and hot water heaters. Softeners also help lengthen the lifespan of some appliances and reduce or prevent mineral spots on glassware. The best part? Water softeners are nice to your skin, leaving it soft and conditioned.
If you have a tankless water heater a softener is highly recommended. Hard water buildup can decrease the efficiency of your tankless water heater and corrode and break down the components inside.
How does a water softener work?
A water softener is a filtration system that works to remove high concentrations of calcium and magnesium that cause hard water. When water flows through a water softener, the system filters out these hard water minerals and the softened water then leaves the water softening system to flow through plumbing.
How long does the installation take?
The installation can take about 3-4 hours, this is just an estimate as each project varies. The technician can give you a better estimate once they determine the scope of the install.
How big is the softener? Where does it live?
The softener is best to be installed as close to the source of the water as possible, so will likely be installed with your water tank. Rümi softeners are compatible with all brands of water tanks and our advisors will make sure you get the correct unit for your space!
What does the tech need from me?
Locate your water tank prior to the visit and make sure there is easy access for the specialist to work.
