Most North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has shown that 89.3 percent of U.S. homes put up with hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes put up with hard water. While it’s normally safe to use, it could cause some issues in your home—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, problems with cleaning dishes and clothing, decreased appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Strand Brothers Service Experts can pitch in with water softening solutions to handle it. Whether you’re just beginning your research on water softeners or you need water softener repair, our team of experts are here to help.
Benefits of Softening Hard Water
- Soft water could make for easier cleaning, increased appliance life, faster water heating and a cleaner plumbing system.
- Soft water is better at rinsing soap residue, which means you’ll have cleaner looking dishes, brighter clothes that don’t have soap residue trapped in them and cleaner sinks with reduced soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also require less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be offset by the minerals and metals in hard water.
- Over time, hard water can cause buildup in your washing machine, dishwasher, water heater and any other appliance that uses water. This buildup can shorten the life of these appliances, reduce their efficiency over time and could even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You may also uncover a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even bigger savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
The quality of your water varies by geography, and is affected by the process your water treatment facilities use, local infrastructure such as sewage systems, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and the presence of mineral deposits that your groundwater may be traveling through. To inform Americans, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), maintains a database of at least 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available online without registration or sign up so you can research if there is pollution in your personal drinking water. With EWG's research showing that 81% of the community utilities tested in the U.S. have chemicals linked to cancer present in them, you'll want to see for yourself what's in your water.
