Homes with metered Newark-on-Trent water rates will have a meter number listed on their water bills.

Newark-on-Trent Water Hardness

Newark-on-Trent water hardness is rated as soft water. While rainwater itself is relatively soft, water hardness can change through the water cycle. Due to the way water filters through rocks in Newark-on-Trent Water's supply area, Newark-on-Trent water picks up minerals, such as magnesium or calcium, on the way to your tap.

Soft water means that your laundry should be softer after washing, your energy bills lower, and appliances will last longer as there will be less build-up of limescale.
