The chalk downs of the Wiltshire plains are a sure indication that the water will be hard.
Much of the water supply for the Wiltshire area is supplied from deep underground boreholes. The rain fall, which replenishes the underground aquifers, will percolate trough through the limestone and dissolve small amounts of calcium carbonate which is what makes the water hard.
There is a solution to the problems caused by hard water, a correctly specified water softener not only makes the water feel pleasant but also removes scale build-up from plumbing systems.
Homes in towns and villages such as Salisbury, Bradford on Avon, Devises, Tisbury, Warminster, Maiden Bradley, Tollard Royal and Mere all benefit from water softener installations from On Tap Water Treatment
