The majority of North American homes have hard water. In fact, the United States Geological Survey has shown that 89.3 percent of U.S. homes deal with hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes deal with hard water. While it’s generally safe to consume, it may cause some concerns in your household—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, concerns with cleaning dishes and clothing, decreased appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where Levy & Son can assist with water softening solutions to meet your needs. 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 does 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 decreased soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also utilize less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be offset by the minerals and metals in hard water.
- Over time, hard water could cause buildup in your washing machine, dishwasher, water heater and any other appliance that uses water. This buildup can decrease the life of these appliances, lower their efficiency over time and can even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You may also notice a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even bigger savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
Water quality varies by region, and is influenced by the process your water treatment facilities use, local infrastructure such as sewage systems, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and existing mineral deposits that your groundwater may be traveling through. To empower people, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), maintains a database of at least 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available online without registration or sign up so you can discover if there is pollution 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.
