Drinking water systems
Every one enjoys pure drinking water. You may enjoy walking by a river, a lake or by the sea but would you drink the water? Not unless you absolutely had too and then you would likely want to boil it or sterlize it. Open surface water could make you sick or even give you a parasite. In this age we have at our convenience chlorinated tap water but many of us find tap water distasteful. Reverse osmosis can remove more than the chlorinated taste but will improve the waters purity by removing nearly 99.8% of the total dissolve solids from the water including all of the chlorine taste. Reverse osmosis is the preferred technology used today in purifying water. You will taste and smell the difference of reverse osmosis. Live longer, live better with a reverse osmosis system. As plumbing contractors we understand the value of great tasting water. We also have carbon activated filtering sysyems if you only want to remove the chlorine taste and not the minerals.
Do you enjoy sitting by an open fire? Most people would agree wood stoves and open pit fireplaces give you a comfort that cannot be matched. In our modern era people still prefer a natural fire. Wood stoves and gas fireplaces can be enjoyable but now you can experience an open fire on your deck with the convenience of gas. You can roast marsh mellows right at home, on your deck or in your backyard with gas fired open pit fireplace. Wood stoves will never be forgotton but the convenience of gas has got even better.

Some gas fired fireplaces add heat to the room others do not. So be sure you know what you want before you get it.
Bring nature to your doorstep with a fish pond. Everyone enjoys wildlife and nature. A fish pond is not only a place for fish but a place where wildlife will also come to visit. We installed a fish pond and now cranes, ducks and people all visit our pond. Fish ponds are enjoyable oin a larger property but can also built as a fountain on smaller properties right in your backyard. Once you have had a fish pond you will always want a fish pond. Quiet restful flowing water relieves stress and promotes green living and a green earth. You will certainly enjoy a fish pond and the creatures it draws like birds. Install a fish pond and give something back to the earth. Koi ponds, dug outs and fountains help to sustain wildlife and give you a peaceful place to get away from the stress of daily modern living. These systems can also be installed indoors. Our fish ponds when used properly can keep most fish species over winter right in the pond. Over winter means regular feeding and open water monitoring but in the summer the fish willl feed themselves naturally and fish ponds help to reduce mosquitos not proliferate them.
Furnaces in Calgary
Calgary furnaces need to be in tip top shape with the long winters here. Drive back the cold and keep warm inside on those cold winter nights. Furnaces replacements are not an option they are a necessity. When it is time to replace your furnace you must replace it with a high efficient furnace as this is a new law in Canada. Reduce green house gases substantially with a furnace replacement as your home needs to be heated whether you are at home or not. Investing into a high efficient product will also reduce your gas bill. Some people have told me by half but I prefer 30% to 40% cost savings depending on the existing furnace being replaced. Furnace replacement reduces your carbon footprint. Saves you money and makes energy available for others to use. Furnace replacements needs to be done before any cracks appear in your heat exchanger. If you wait until after cracks appear then the time you waited and the time you took to replace your furnace exposed you and your family to hazards of carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and products of combustion that are known to be carcinogenic and sometimes even lethal. Don’t waste your money fixing your old furnace. Furnace replacement will allow you to enjoy reliable service for many years to come. As furnace replacement contractor we will assit you in getting the best product for your needs.

in my house? To clean the air the earth uses rain and snow. We cannot make it rain in your house but we can clean the air, first by mechanical filtration, second by creating a water fall in your house. This waterfall does not need to be very big.
