Want Softer Water?

Calcium and magnesium can make household water “hard”. Removing them provides water that cleans better, creates more lather and reduces soap scum buildup, too. At Enercare, we have made-in-Canada water softening solutions to meet your family’s needs and budget.

Hard Water, Soft Water: What’s the Difference?

Hard water has a mineral content of more than 7 grains per gallon (120 mg/L). It keeps soap from lathering and rinsing off and, over time, can leave deposits in appliances or around faucets that can affect their performance. Soft water has mineral content less than 7 grains per gallon (120 mg/L) and so has none of the harmful effects of hard water.1
