The majority of North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has revealed that 89.3 percent of U.S. homes have hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes deal with hard water. While it’s normally safe to consume, it can cause some problems in your home—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, issues with cleaning dishes and clothing, decreased appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Knochelmann Service Experts can help with water softening solutions to take care of it. Whether you’re just beginning 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, extended appliance life, faster water heating and a cleaner plumbing system.
- Soft water can do a better job of rinsing soap residue, which means you will 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 use 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, lower their efficiency over time and could 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 bigger savings when it comes to your appliances. If you think you have an issue with hard water, one of our professionals can come out to check out your water softener and give you an idea of what’s happening.

Water Quality Alert!
The quality of your water varies by state and region, and is affected by the processing your water goes through, 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 empower people, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), put together a database of more than 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available online and no registration or sign up so you can learn if there are contaminants in your local 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.
