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

Is the Water Around Me Hard or Soft?

If you live in an area with hard water, you may want to consider a water softener. The map below shows where in Ontario hard water is most common.

Why is Soft Water Better?

Soft water has several benefits your family will experience every day: 

Faster Household Cleaning

Soft water leaves no soap scum to clean from shower heads, faucets or humidifiers – saving you time. Floors, windows and woodwork clean better with soft water, too.

Better-Looking Clothes

Washing your laundry in soft water is more effective and leaves your clothes brighter, cleaner and softer.

Water Savings

Water heaters can consume up to 22% less energy when heating soft water. ^

You’ll Feel Better

Soft water washes away more cleanly and is less likely to clog your pores.

Money Savings

Eliminating hard water buildup helps extend the life of appliances and plumbing.

Soft water is much easier on water heaters and tankless water heaters.  So much so that water heaters can consume 22% less energy with soft water.^

What Kind of Water Softener do I Need?

Enercare offers two kinds of water softener units: standalone and with dechlorinater-units. Both will soften your water and are easy to maintain, but each offers different benefits.

Benefits of Water Softeners

  • Softens your water and eliminates odour by removing calcium, magnesium, low traces of iron and other minerals
  • Prevents scale buildup on your taps, fixtures and appliances, keeping them performing like new for longer
  • Leaves your hair silkier and more manageable and your skin less dry
  • Prevents laundry from fading and leaves your clothes feeling softer
  • Eliminates spots on your dishes, leaving them sparkling clean, using half the soap as with hard water
  • Perfect solution for both municipal and well water
  • Uses 80% less salt than traditional water softeners
  • Fully programmable and computerized to measure exact water usage 
  • Inexpensive to operate: 12-volt AC unit uses less than $3/year in electricity6
  • Lifetime manufacturer warranty

Benefits of Water Softener with Dechlorinater5

  • All the benefits of a water softener on its own, plus:
  • Removes chlorine and volatile organic chemicals from your water.
  • Chlorine is one of the biggest complaints about water. Enercare’s Water Softener with dechlorinater is specifically designed to work in the Canadian municipal water markets and therefore is our #1 water treatment seller.

Thanks to Mike and Jordan for installing a new A/C and furnace for our home. They were able to install the A/C unit in a different location than our pre-existing unit with no issue. They were quick and tidy – couldn’t even tell they were here.
