At Valley Plumbing & Water Treatment we offer several different water treatment options depending on your particular needs. Which one is right for you? The following brief description of common water complaints may give you an idea but the best way to find out is to have one of Valley Plumbing & Water Treatment’s qualified representatives come by for a full water assessment.
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 Valley Plumbing & Water Treatment 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 Valley Plumbing & Water Treatment 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 two 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 kill microbiological contaminents, bacteria and viruses.
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.
The Homespring Central Water Purifier, designed and manufactured by GE Water & Process Technologies, enables the homeowner to obtain safer, better tasting water from every tap in the entire house by filtering water at the point of entry. In addition to providing an effective barrier to bacteria, parasites and viruses (please see certification and testing data for more information), this self-contained water treatment system, will distribute refreshing, crystal clear water to every tap in the home.
When was the last time you changed your water filter? If you are like 98% of people, not often enough. Why? Water filters lose their effectiveness over time; therefore if you neglect to change your water filter, your filtration system might not be doing what you bought it to do in the first place.
If that is the case, you are not alone. Many of our customers tell us that they get busy and forget to order a new filter. Others don’t like the inconvenience of having to drive all the way out to see us just to pick up a new water filter. We’ve been listening and we have a solution.

When you join the “The Filter Club” you select what kind of water filter you need and every 6 months we will send you out a new one, right to your door. Isn’t that convenient?
