"Just wanted to thank Scott and Paul for the good service yesterday when they installed my new water softener. They called ahead and said they would be arriving in 10 - 15 mins and worked diligently for the 1 1/2 hrs or so they were here. Took boots off at the door and were very careful with the cart as they moved up and down the stairs. Gave my wife and I instructions at the finish and were very professional. Everything cleaned up at the end. Good job and well done!" - Bob Reith

What you can expect
When you purchase a water softener from WaterSmart, we will:
- Deliver your new water softener
- Install the new water softener and hook it up to any necessary plumbing
- Replace any existing residential water softener in the same location within the home
- Set-up and program the softener unit

Additionally, if you purchase one of our Smart Series water softeners, you will notice that it will be installed a little differently than the conventional softener. This is to make it even more efficient. This is done when we program the softener with the unique water challenges found in Kitchener in mind.
WaterSmart's softeners are designed for Kitchener's water challenges and installed free of charge.
Water challenges unique to Kitchener
Kitchener has a unique water challenge, as it has some of the hardest water in all of Canada. Kitchener has a water hardness level of 20-32 grains per gallon in most of the city, versus the national average in Canada of 10.5 grains per gallon. That is 2 to 3 times the level of water hardness than the average!
Hard water can present a number of problems in your home. Some of those problems include:
- Difficulties getting dishes or laundry clean
- Damage to your clothing causing them to wear out faster
- Damage to your washing machine
- Damage to your dishwasher
- Calcium buildup in your shower
- Sink stains
- Toilet bowl stains
- Plumbing pipe damage
Getting the right water softener that can handle this kind of water hardness is important to fully eliminate the problems the water in Kitchener can cause. For more, you should also read Water Softeners - The Most Effective Option for your Water Supply.

DIY vs. professional installation
Savvy homeowners may want to take a crack at installation, but with a job that requires such specialization, why take the risk? A botched installation could result in serious leaks in your basement, which can damage flooring and cause mold if not dealt with immediately!
Trained technicians will safely deliver and install your new water softener and hook it up to any necessary plumbing. They will set-up and program your new unit and test it to make sure that it is functioning properly.
They will also show you how to properly maintain your softener and give you instructions about how the unit works. Once the installation is complete, they will remove your previous softener, if you had one, and clean up the job site.
WaterSmart has 20+ years of experience in Kitchener and the surrounding areas. Our highly trained plumbers know what they are doing and can expertly handle any unforeseen challenges that might arise during the installation.
