Most North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has discovered that 89.3 percent of U.S. homes deal with hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes put up with hard water. While it’s generally safe to utilize, it could cause some issues in your home—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, issues with cleaning dishes and clothing, shortened appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Roland J. Down Service Experts can assist with water softening solutions to meet your needs. Whether you’re just kicking off your research on water softeners or you need water softener repair, our team of professionals 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 can do a better job of 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 decreased soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also utilize less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be counteracted by the minerals and metals in hard water.
- Over time, hard water may 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, decrease their efficiency over time and may even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You could also notice a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even more 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 filtering through. To educate consumers, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), developed a database of over 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available online and no 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 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.
