Hard Water Test At Home

Mar 01 2016

It is very easy to find out if you have hard or soft water in your home, all you need is a water bottle and some dish soap. If you wish to test for the level of hardness and treatment options, Superior Water & Air offers free water evaluations.

Step 1: Find a plastic bottle and fill it halfway with water from your tap.

Step 4: Take the cap off and observe the soap for results.

Soft Water Result:

If the bottle is full of soap suds and they overflow out of the bottle when you take the cap off you do not have hard water.

Hard Water Result:

The more times you have to shake the bottle to get it to fill with suds, and the less time those suds last, the harder your water is. Only got a soapy film? Your water is very hard.
