Water and Wastewater Providers in Scotland

For both wastewater and water services in Scotland you need only contact one company - Scottish Water. As both of these services are covered by a single company, this should streamline your registration with them, and make any contact with them much simpler in comparison to other regions where you may have to contact separate companies for each service.

Water Hardness in Scotland

Your waters hardness rating is determined by how many minerals such as calcium and magnesium your water has picked up before reaching your home. The higher the mineral values in your water, the harder your water will be. Hard water can lead to limescale and be less efficient at tasks such as washing clothes or cleaning dishes. The good news for you though, is that the majority of Scotlands water is rated as soft. This means that you shouldn't need to take any additional steps to protect your appliances or combat limescale. Water hardness ratings can change throughout the year, however, so it is a good idea to familiarize yourself with what you can do if you notice a change in the quality of your water.
