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 put up with hard water. 85 percent of Canadian homes put up with hard water. While it’s generally safe to use, it can cause some concerns 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 Becht / Givens Service Experts can pitch in with water softening solutions to take care of it. 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 could make for easier cleaning, increased 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 reduced soap scum buildup.
- You’ll also use less detergent and cleaning supplies because they won’t be neutralized 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 decrease the life of these appliances, decrease their efficiency over time and may even cause you to need repairs on these items.
You might also uncover a difference in the money you’re saving on cleaning supplies, with even bigger savings when it comes to your appliances.

Water Quality Alert!
Your water quality varies by state and region, and is influenced 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 over 30 million state records of tap water tests, and available for free without registration or sign up so you can learn 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.
