Do I Have Hard Water?

WaterOne softens our water with lime and soda ash to control the mineral content that causes hard water. (We follow-up by filtering the lime and ash during our treatment process.)

The EPA requires us to maintain certain levels of calcium and magnesium - minerals that cause hard water. They protect customers from exposure to lead from internal plumbing systems. The water should be depositing a fine layer of calcium on the pipes. If the water is too soft it can corrode or break down pipes and fixtures, releasing lead and copper from your plumbing.
