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 have hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes deal with hard water. While it’s generally safe to utilize, it can cause some issues in your house—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, concerns with cleaning dishes and clothing, decreased appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Fras-Air/General Service Experts can help 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 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 does 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 reduced soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also use less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be offset 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, lower their efficiency over time and can 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 influenced by the process your water treatment facilities use, 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 people, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), put together a database of at least 30 million state records of tap water tests, and made it publicly available with no registration or sign up so you can learn if there are contaminants in your home's drinking water. With EWG's research showing that 81% of the facilities 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.
