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 have hard water. While it’s typically safe to use, it may cause some concerns in your household—like mineral buildup in your plumbing, issues with cleaning dishes and clothing, reduced appliance life and dry skin and hair.
That’s where BW/Cook Service Experts 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 experts 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 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 utilize 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 shorten the life of these appliances, reduce their efficiency over time and could even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You may also note a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even larger savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
Your water quality varies by region, and can differ based on the water treatment infrastructure in your community, local infrastructure such as construction, local industries such as mining and agriculture, and underground mineral deposits that your groundwater may be flowing through. To inform consumers, the Environmental Working Group (EWG), maintains a database of more than 30 million state records of tap water tests, and made it publicly available without registration or sign up so you can discover if there are chemicals 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.
