Hard Water Problems
Many towns in the county of Surrey have hard mains water, and Weybridge is no exception. The water hardness is typically around 250-350ppm. That means the mains water contains high levels of limestone and magnesium that it's picked up on its journey through the underground rocks. Limescale in the hot water pipes is a problem in Lightwater. It's caused by hard water. That means that your heating system will be working much less efficiently, which will cost you money.
This problem can be fixed by using water softeners. Total hardness is usually expressed in terms of calcium carbonate and is measured in milligrammes per litre (mg/l) or parts per million (ppm). The recognised classification scheme used by the water provider in this area is: 0-75 soft, 76-150 moderately hard, 151-300 hard, 300+ very hard.
The minerals in hard water are not your dishwasher’s friends. Over time, they can build up into deposits, just like limescale in a kettle, and reduce the effectiveness of your machine. Using dishwasher salt "softens" the water, which reduces the mineral level and helps stop those build-ups. This has the added effect of increasing the life of your dishwasher, keeping your pots, pans and plates perfect for longer.
In order to set the optimum level of dishwasher salt, you need to know exactly how hard your water is. Your machine’s user manual will have a guide that shows you how to adjust the salt setting accordingly - the level of salt needed in the machine is generally higher the harder the water. At 258 mg/l the water in Weybridge is hard.
