Water Treatment and Filtration
Anyone from Calgary knows we have hard water. Hard water is tough on ALL your plumbing fixtures, some more than others. Toilets, faucets and valves have plastic or rubber parts that can break down faster with hard water. Hot water tanks and especially tankless water heaters are extremely susceptible to degradation from hard water if left unchecked. Calgary’s water hardness ranges from 9.9 -17.7 grains per gallon (gpg). Water is considered hard from 10.5-21 gpg. Anything above 21 gpg is considered very hard (like calculus). 180 Plumbing and Heating can help recommend and install a water softener or descaling filter based on your needs. We can also help with iron, chlorine, fluoride and sediment for well systems.
