What's the water hardness rating in Moulton

While rainwater itself is relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle. As rainwater filters through rocks, it picks up minerals, such as magnesium and calcium. The more minerals the water picks up, the harder is your water considered.

The water hardness in Moulton is higher than 201ppm, this means the water in Moulton is rated as hard water.

What does this mean?

The clean water supply to your home in Moulton contains an elevated level of hard water minerals. hard water means your water is not as effective at cleaning dishes, glassware, clothes, or even your body. There may also be more limescale in your appliances and the taste of your tap water may be affected.

Selectra recommends

You should add a water softener to the water in Moulton.

  1. Baths, sinks, and toilets - Use an acidic sanitiser regularly (available in local shops) to clean susceptible surfaces in order to clear limescale deposits.
  2. Kettles - Don't completely fill your kettle with water. You can clean your kettle by half-filling and diluting two tablespoons of white vinegar, leaving it for four hours in order to loosen scale build-up. Rinse and repeat to remove scale.
  3. Dishwashers - Use the built-in water softener. Make sure you occasionally top it off with dishwasher salt in the right compartment.

Moulton No Water

If there isn't any running water in your Moulton home, you will first need to find out whether the problem is with your home plumbing or if the issue is within your neighbourhood in Moulton.

If there is no water at your Moulton home, is the problem no cold water or no hot water? If you still have cold water but no hot water, the issue is probably going to be with your home plumbing and not a problem affecting Moulton.

  2. If you can access the internet from your location, navigate to the "report a leak" area of the Anglian Water or Cambridge Water website and complete the online form to report the issue.
