Hard and Soft Water
In the UK there are hard and soft areas. Rain water in its natural form is completely soft and it’s not until it hits the ground that it begins to absorb minerals found within the earth, which can lead to hard water.
In hard water areas the ground is typically a composition of chalk and magnesium, which is very easily absorbed by water. In soft water areas the composition of the earth is typically hard stone, such as granite, leading to those areas being naturally soft. Find out about the different hard and soft areas of the UK.
