What is the hardness of my water?
Depending on where you live, your water can range from 12 ppm to 80 ppm. Areas supplied by the water treatment plants have a higher hardness than those supplied by the Black Creek well field. Softer water tends to make your skin feel slick after showering and harder water does not produce suds as well as softer water.
