Clogged Shower Head From Hard Water?

What is Hard Water?

Hard water is a term that means that your water has high levels of calcium and magnesium. Indicators of hard water around the house include stiff laundry, white mineral deposits on dishware, soap that refuses to lather up, scale build-up in sinks and appliances. When the scale build-up results from hard water, it is moved by the force of water to the faucet, the scale gets trapped behind the shower head’s wire or plastic screen.

If you have been experiencing a clogged showerhead, even after constantly cleaning, improving your water quality is the next step. Naturally, hard water has calcium and other mineral deposits which over time can clog faucets, showerheads and even coffeemakers.

Water Softeners at Culligan Saskatoon

Culligan Saskatoon’s water softeners extend the life of appliances you use daily. By reducing the build-up of minerals in the water supply, your shower head, water heater, dishwasher, and washing machine run more efficiently.

Culligan Saskatoon is the name you can trust when it comes to water in Saskatoon and the surrounding area and we look forward to meeting you!

Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment Store, Fitness Solutions Stocks Stationary Bikes

Fitness Solutions is a locally owned, Trusted Saskatoon Fitness Equipment storeserving residential and commercial customers for over 30 years. They have the tools and the experience to make your fitness goals a reality. They are there every step of the way to guide and educate you through the process of finding the perfect piece of equipment to make it happen. In our latest Trusted Saskatoon fitness article, they provide information on the different types of stationary bikes available at Fitness Solutions Saskatoon.

TYPES OF STATIONARY BIKES AT FITNESS SOLUTIONS SASKATOON

Stationary Bikes at Fitness Solutions

Stationary bikes make excellent additions to your home gym. Riding one provides an effective total body workout burning calories and body fat while also strengthening your heart, lungs, and muscles. At Fitness Solutions Saskatoon, we have a wide variety of stationary bikes available either in stock or to order for you.

Upright Bike

The upright bike is similar to a regular bicycle, with the pedals positioned under your body. It provides a great cardio workout while also strengthening your leg and core muscles. Depending on your preference, this bike can be used both standing or sitting.

One of many upright bikes we have at Fitness Solutions is the Sole Fitness B54 Upright Cycle. The SOLE B54 upright cycle's low-impact motion is one of the main benefits of exercising with an indoor cycle. Decreasing stress on knees, hips, and ankles throughout your workout while providing positive cardiovascular effects, it is suitable for anything from maintenance to high-performance exercise. The B54 is easy to use at any exercise level and takes up a relatively small amount of space, making it an ideal fitness partner for your home workout.

Recumbent Bike

Recumbent stationary bikes allow you to sit in a comfortable reclined position on a larger seat that’s positioned back from the pedals. This type of bike puts less stress on your upper body, joints, and low back. Your body is fully supported, which can make your workout less intense. You’ll also have less fatigue and muscle soreness after your workout.

Fitness Solutions has different options of recumbent bikes including the S3Ri Recumbent Bike. Featuring the Concept Health and Fitness integration which allows for countless entertainment and motivational options, the S3Ri is a full-size, walk-through recumbent featuring the latest in creature comforts for enjoyable workouts.  



Indoor Cycle Bike

The indoor cycle bike, which is the most popular option in indoor cycling classes, is similar to an upright bike. However, it has an elevated seat.

Another difference is that resistance is created with a weighted flywheel on the front, which is typically about 40 pounds. The resistance can be adjusted to simulate hills or riding into the wind.

An option for an indoor spin bike at Fitness Solutions is the Horizon Fitness IC7.9 Indoor Cycle Spin Bike. Designed to keep pace with the most popular live and on-demand streaming fitness classes, the IC7.9 indoor cycle puts your tablet and content at the centre of your experience. Pedal along with Peloton, Studio SWEAT onDemand or other popular streaming fitness apps.* Bring your favourite media or just ride — no membership fees or subscriptions are required to get the most from this high-performance bike.

Air Bike

A less common type of stationary bike is a fan or air bike. This bike doesn’t have any preprogrammed options as you create resistance by pedalling. The faster you pedal, the faster the wheel blades rotate and the more resistance you generate. 

Fitness Solutions has air bikes including the Bells of Steel Blitz Air Bike 2.0. The Blitz Air Bike is the definitive choice for your home gym. Belt-driven with an oversized fan and comes standard with wind guard, bottle and phone holder and a super comfy seat! This fan bike is well suited to even the most die-hard garage gym athletes.

Trusted Saskatoon Home Builder Decora Homes Home Safety Tip About Carbon Monoxide

DISTINCTIVE, CONTEMPORARY... DECORA HOMES. They build to reflect your personality, they design to meet your needs, they build relationships. DECORA HOMES... it's ALL in the details.  Decora Homes are Trusted Saskatoon Homebuilders


Decora Homes Share Important Carbon Monoxide Safety Tip

A very important winter reminder from Decora Homes: be sure to clear ice from vents, intakes, and exhaust pipes on your house. This is especially important for newer homes with advanced high-efficiency technology. This takes very little time to do and it is so important. If not cleared, it can cause carbon monoxide to back up into your home. 

This important reminder can save lives! Carbon monoxide is a silent killer - it has no odour, taste, or colour as it cannot be seen. It is highly poisonous and very flammable. Fire departments warn about this dangerous gas and suggest homeowners buy a CO detector - also a good tip for apartment dwellers. CO detectors are very reasonably priced and can saves lives, and you can't put a price on that. 

It is very important to keep vent pipes clear. Winter weather can lead to vent blockages which can cause terrible harm to families. Forgetting to clear ice and snow happens too often, even though it is an easy problem to solve.

Decora cares about the safety of their clients - Stay warm and safe!

Workplace Policy Revisions Regarding Recreational Cannabis

Workplace Policies & Cannabis

Recent changes in the law surrounding the use of Cannabis products in Canada have a lot of employers asking how to handle this in the workplace. This recent article from Global News does a great job offering some suggestions on preparing your organization for handling the legalization of Marijuana and recreational use.

As you can see, now, more than ever, it is important for organizations to ensure they have a good drug policy in place that properly includes provisions for cannabis impairment in the workplace. It’s a good reminder that employers cannot tell their employees what they can and can’t do off duty, but expectations around impairment that could affect an employee’s ability to do their job safely, do need to be clearly outlined.

The legalization of marijuana is still a relatively new issue, but you do need to protect the health and safety of all of your employees with set company policies. As the lawyer from the Global article points out, companies do have to take into consideration the use of medicinal marijuana, so it’s not as simple as having a zero-tolerance policy.

If you have questions about your organization's drug or impairment policy or if you need help creating one, contact the team at Aurora Workplace Solutions.

Employers Are You Concerned About Rising Cost of Group Benefits? 

There is a new survey out from Aon that shows while Canadian employers are highly concerned about the rising costs of group benefits (due to drug expenses), they still prioritize the productivity and engagement of their employees and recognize the importance that group benefits play in creating healthy employees and a healthy work environment.

Canadian group benefit sponsors were surveyed by Aon to identify their Top 10 benefits and workplace priorities. 

The results were:

Top 10 Workforce Priorities

  1. Employee productivity/engagement
  2. Employee wellness
  3. Attracting, retaining employees; developing skills for changing business environment
  4. Workplace mental health
  5. Employee financial wellness
  6. Family support obligations, the effect on productivity and well-being
  7. Chronic illness effect on productivity
  8. Multi-generational workforce
  9. Delayed retirement – productivity and performance challenges
  10. Delayed retirement – employees working past normal retirement age.

Top 10 Group Benefits Priorities

  1. Escalating drug costs generally
  2. Escalating specialty drug costs in particular
  3. Escalating extended health costs generally
  4. Chronic illness effect on plan costs
  5. Need to personalize employee benefits experience
  6. Rising payroll costs (e.g. minimum wage, CPP contributions)
  7. Compliance/governance obligations
  8. Cost-shifting – public to private
  9. The administrative hassle of employee benefits
  10. National Pharmacare discussions

 


“The key takeaway from our survey is that plan sponsors are keenly aware of the need to manage rising benefits costs, but they also put a high priority on ensuring their employees are engaged and healthy,” commented Canadian health & benefits chief actuary Greg Durant. Durant prefaced that although the top priorities sound contradictory, there are ways for employers to achieve a balance – they will just have to “think outside the box” in order to meet both their workforce objectives while creating value for their people. One suggested method to achieve this balance is to create wellness programs that could potentially reduce overall extended health costs.
