A great deal of 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 have hard water. While it’s generally safe to utilize, it can cause some problems in your household—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, concerns with cleaning dishes and clothing, reduced appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Strand Brothers can pitch in with water softening solutions to meet your needs. 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 can 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 less soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also utilize less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be neutralized 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 could 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!
The quality of your water varies by state and region, and is affected by the processing your water goes through, local infrastructure such as roads, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and the presence of mineral deposits that your groundwater may be flowing through. To inform consumers, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), put together a database of over 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available for free without registration or sign up so you can discover if there is pollution in your local 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.
