Most North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has discovered that 89.3 percent of U.S. homes have hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes have hard water. While it’s normally safe to consume, it could cause some issues in your house—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, issues with cleaning dishes and clothing, shortened appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Levy & Son can assist with water softening solutions to handle it. Whether you’re just starting 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, longer appliance life, faster water heating and a cleaner plumbing system.
- Soft water does a better job of 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 decreased soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also utilize 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 reduce the life of these appliances, reduce their efficiency over time and may 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 state and region, and is influenced by the processing your water goes through, local infrastructure such as roads, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and underground mineral deposits that your groundwater may be flowing through. To inform people, 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 are contaminants in your home's 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.
