It is considered Soft. Water hardness refers to the concentration of certain minerals, particularly those containing calcium and magnesium. People tend to ask about hardness after reading the owner's manual for a new dishware or washing machine. This is because hardness minerals inhibit the sudsing action of soaps and detergents. In areas of the country where water is very hard, these mineral deposits can damage boilers and block water pipes.
Turbidity is the cloudiness of water. This cloudiness is caused by particles, largely clay, that are so tiny they will not settle out of the water on their own. These particles are undesirable because they interfere with disinfection.
Water Department personnel must complete removal of the outside remote. Call the Utilities Division at (603) 890-2175 to arrange for the removal & reinstallation of your outside remote. There is no charge for this service.
