In general, our supply area has 'hard' or 'very hard' water and this hardness occurs naturally. If you have concerns about the hardness of your water, we cannot recommend whether you fit a water softener or not. This is very much a matter of personal choice and, as our responsibility stops at the boundary of your property. We are not able to advise or carry out work on internal plumbing or provide a list of manufacturers.
If you do decide to install a water softener you should make sure that you have a separate supply of unsoftened water for drinking and cooking. Some studies have suggested that hard water may be beneficial to heart health and this benefit could be lost in softened water. Also many softeners use sodium, which is found naturally in table salt, and this can be a problem for babies, particularly those who were premature, and for people who are on a low sodium diet.
