A great deal of North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has shown 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 generally safe to consume, it could cause some issues in your household—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, issues with cleaning dishes and clothing, shortened appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Hammond Plumbing can pitch in with water softening solutions to handle 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 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 decreased soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also use 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 reduce the life of these appliances, lower their efficiency over time and may even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You might also note a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even more savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
Water quality varies by state and region, and is influenced by the water treatment infrastructure in your community, local infrastructure such as sewage systems, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and existing mineral deposits that your groundwater may be filtering through. To empower 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 learn if there are contaminants in your personal 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.
