230 ppm (moderately hard)

Sayers Common is subject to very hard water

Living in Sayers Common means you’ll have hard water coming through your mains supply. It’s due to the abundant chalky soil and bedrock in the area. Although rainwater is naturally soft, when it comes into contact with the bedrock, which is full of hard water-causing calcium and magnesium minerals, the water becomes much harder.

The best way to stop all this hard water is to have a water softener fitted in your house or apartment. You’ll see the benefits immediately. Our skin and hair love soft water; it helps them retain their natural softness and vibrancy, whereas hard water washes the living daylights out of everything. Softened water is also wonderful for soothing dry skin conditions, like dermatitis and eczema. Plus, laundry won’t feel stiff and starchy if regularly washed in softened water.

The main reason you get limescale build up on kitchen and bathroom surfaces is because of hard water. A water softener will instantly get rid of it, so that it doesn’t accumulate around baths, sinks, shower screens and household appliances. Even worse, limescale is awful for central heating systems; it blocks up pipework and forms in water tanks. A system battling to overcome limescale will consume unnecessary amounts of costly energy to produce the right amount of heat and hot water. Softened water means lower fuel bills and a healthy boiler.

The water hardness level in Sayers Common sits at around 230 parts per million (ppm) – that’s pretty high, given anything over 200 ppm is considered hard. With a cost-effective Scott Jenkins Water Softener in situ, your water hardness reading will plummet to virtually zero.
