Just bought a new dishwasher and was wondering what the water softness in the area was.

Does anybody know ?

Unquestionably hard - good for health, not so good for your bathroom tiles.

The water is really hard. London is a clay basin with chalk aquifer underneath. (I knew my A level geography would come in useful one day.) So lots of calcium. Well worth using water softening stuff in both dishwashers and washing machines. Calgon is quite expensive, but Lidl have a much cheaper own brand which seems to do the job equally well. If you use a water softener you can save on detergent.

Why is hard water good for your health? I always imagined my innards were lined in limescale...
