The water hardness in Essex ranges from slightly hard to very hard. Water hardness is measured in parts per million (ppm). Soft water is generally classed as 80ppm or under, and hard 120ppm and over. Anything over the 200ppm mark is classed as very hard water.
Chelmsford has a water hardness level of 327.20 ppm which is very hard. Water of this level can cause problems such as:
- Dry skin, eczema, acne and dry hair.
- Blocked shower heads and taps.
- Soap Scum and limescale scum in your tea & coffee.
- White deposits on surfaces such as your shower screen, tiles and glassware.
- Appliances that break, e.g. kettles, washing machines, irons.
- An inefficient heating system.

Watre softeners come in a range of sizes and different brands. The two best brands to look for are Harvey & Kientico. Generally these are sold very exclsuively to few dealers in the UK. So if you are searching online you are likely to find large distributors offering old models and outdated brands such as Crown and Monarch. The latest technology is non-electric, twin tank systems and use block or tablet salt.
With most water softeners - you get what you pay for! A cheap price means a low grade ion exchange resin inside the machine. Low grade means it is not efficient at softening very hard water to the correct degree and simply wont last long. For that reason you will likely see short warranties of 0-12 months VS 10 years that is offered with Harvey and Kinetico twin tank designs.
