If you are experiencing “hard water” problems such as calcium, magnesium or other minerals in your water, then a water softener is your solution. Water softeners replace the active mineral ions with sodium ions. By “softening” the water, you eliminate hard water stains on fixtures, dishes and white laundry. Stop mineral build-up in your pipes, hot water tank and appliances. Improve the quality of your hair and skin, and much, much more.
There are several different water softeners on the market today, each with its own specifications. Your Manax Plumbing representative will be able to identify the appropriate softener for your needs based on your current water quality and daily usage.

Does your water smell like rotten eggs? That is a common complaint with country well water and it comes from excess sulphur in your water. Or perhaps your water is leaving a rust-coloured stain on laundry and bathroom fixtures and has a slight metallic taste. This is caused by excess iron in your water. A water filtration system can remove these unwanted minerals as well as sand and other sediment leaving you crystal-clear water without any offensive odor. Water filters utilize a media, which water is forced through under pressure, to remove unwanted materials.
There are several different water filters available, each designed to remove specific material from your water. Your Manax Plumbing representative will be able to identify the appropriate filter for your needs based on water testing done at your location.
If you are drawing your water from a lake, well, or other source exposed to contaminants, then a water purification system is your solution. There are a variety of water purification systems available. The Three main types of systems include:
- Reverse Osmosis – Uses a semi-permeable membrane to allow only water molecules in their pure state to pass through.
- Ultraviolet – Uses UV light to inactivate (not kill) microbiological contaminants, bacteria and some viruses
- Hydrogen Peroxide or Chlorine injections systems kill microbiological contaminants, bacteria, viruses, spores, and algae
Water purification systems are typically employed with other filtration or softening systems and can be located under a sink. Water from an installed purification system will rival most bottled water.
