My water is hard. Do you recommend I purchase a water softener?
We don’t recommend one way or the other. This is a personal preference as hardness, which is defined as dissolved calcium and magnesium carbonates in the water, is an aesthetic issue and not a health issue. Hardness is not a regulated parameter and it comes down to personal preferences.
