Hard water is the most common problem found in the average home. Hard water is typically defined as water having more than 1 gpg of dissolved minerals in it, generally consisting of calcium, magnesium carbonate, and/or manganese. The amount of hardness in water is usually measured in either PPM (parts per million) or GPG (grains per gallon).17.1 PPM or 17.1 Mg/L = 1 GPG
A couple of ways for you to find out how hard your water is, would be to have it tested in a Water Test Lab. or you can send a small sample to us, (at least 500ml.), and we will gladly test it for you free, even if you decide to purchase your softener elsewhere!
We will test your sample for Total Dissolved Solids and hardness and pH and email or phone the results back to you.
