The majority of North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has discovered 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 typically safe to use, it can cause some concerns 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 Knochelmann Service Experts can pitch in with water softening solutions to take care of it. Whether you’re just kicking off your research on water softeners or you need water softener repair, our team of specialists are here to help.
Benefits of Softening Hard Water
- Soft water may make for easier cleaning, longer appliance life, faster water heating and a cleaner plumbing system.
- Soft water is better at rinsing soap residue, which means you can have cleaner looking dishes, brighter clothes that don’t have soap residue trapped in them and cleaner sinks with less soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also require less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be neutralized 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, lower their efficiency over time and may even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You could also note a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even larger savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
The quality of your water varies by region, and is influenced by the processing your water goes through, local infrastructure such as roads, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and existing mineral deposits that your groundwater may be filtering through. To inform Americans, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), developed a database of over 30 million state records of tap water tests, and made it publicly available and no registration or sign up so you can research if there is pollution 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.
