Water Quality Reports

Water Hardness

Water Hardness is primarily caused by the presence of calcium and magnesium in the water and is reported as CaCOmg/L. Water that is hard requires more soap to create a lather, and leads to scaling of appliances and water pipes. Hardness is an aesthetic issue and is not considered a public health concern.

InnServices has tested its four drinking water systems for hardness, here are the latest results:
