What should water hardness be set at?
Besides, what hardness should water softener be set?
The higher the setting means harder the water supply. If your water supply hardness is 15 gpm (grains per gallon) then you set the hardness level to 15.
Secondly, what does the hardness number on a water softener mean? 11-04-2009, 04:18 PM. Re: How to adjust water softener hardness. The hardness setting is a number that is determined by the "grains" of hardness in your water and the iron content. You cannot set how hard or soft you want the water. It is either hard or soft--no adjustment for in between.
In this regard, what is the ideal hardness of water?
Measures of water hardness General guidelines for classification of waters are: 0 to 60 mg/L (milligrams per liter) as calcium carbonate is classified as soft; 61 to 120 mg/L as moderately hard; 121 to 180 mg/L as hard; and more than 180 mg/L as very hard.
Why is my soft water so slippery?
Soft water leaves your skin and hair “hydrated and clean”, not squeaky. Since water is wet and there is not scummy film on your skin to cause friction, the water feels “slippery”. That slippery feeling is the indication of healthy, clean skin and hair. The soap is long gone and your skin is very clean.
