Brita Water Hardness Testing Strip free from Brita

Do I have soft or hard water? Does my water have high or low carbonate hardness? We often meet these questions in our everyday lives because high degrees of water hardness can affect the way we prepare our tea, coffee, or meals and influence how we taste our food. If you care about having the best tasting beverages and wish to improve the quality of your meals, then you should test your water hardness!

No need for a strip, ask your water company and they'll tell you.

Most have online post code search facilities to tell you the levels of everything.

So true. In our local we talk of little else.

They all say hard so you buy filters.

Warning: Brita is rubbish. You want something like Zero Water. Mine came with a Parts Per Million test instrument free (much better than this), and it removed all 305 PPM of contaminants from my water and my mums. My brother had Brita and tested his 'filtered' water and it was removing less than 10% (!) of the contaminants. So we're going to have 3 Zero Water filters soon.

They are great, this, not so much.
Just go on your water suppliers website. That will tell you about your water hardness as well as a lot of other quality stats.

how many strips?
I have to wash my car twice, once to get off the dirt and again to get rid of the hard water marks!

Hard water is actually good for you. Calcium and magnesium ions are really important for teeth, bones and cell-cell signalling. Yes hard water tastes gross, and can scale up appliances, but to talk in terms of contamination is a bit of a misnomer.

Yes this is true. People even live longer in hard water areas! However personally I would rather supplement for this and avoid the fluoride and chlorine and the Zero Water filtered water tastes fantastic, for tea and coffee and on it's own.

Yes the filters are expensive (not quite 2 for 50 I think) but they should last over 2 months each for me and they actually work. I mean if you're filtering your water you may as well get an actually effective filter? I didn't do all the research there may well be more cost effective measures out there. The US of A seems to get many more and better options.
The zero water intrigues me, but reviews state the filters last about a fortnight in very hard water areas, and there is nothing more convenient than my Brita kettle, shame zero don't offer this
London has hard water
I would trust Tyent ioniser. Two filters get rid of 99.9% of contamination. They are being sold on Amazon, but are the cheapest on eBay.
