Water Hardness Assessment Issues - Bangalore, Advice Required!

Hi Experts,

We recently shifted toan apartment in Bangalore situated in Kundelhalli. The ground water is very hard in this area and the builder has installed a water softener plant. But we had not observed any major change in taste of the supplied water from the plant, even a water purifier company salesman measured the TDS value of the supplied water at around 800.

We contacted the apartment maintenance department and they measured the CaCO3 ppm of the water using an ion-exchange test kit. Samples were taken of the input, output from the filter plant and in apartment. In all the samples the CaCO3 ppm was around 400ppm, which we found surprising as the plant does not seem to be doing anything.Read More
