What are the worst hard water areas in England?

Posted on: June 5th, 2014 by admin No Comments

Many areas of the UK have hard water. This ranges from dealing with scum and scale to a raging a constant battle with bad tasting water, broken kitchen appliances,  and rising fuel bills. We have found by carrying out water tests around the country that some areas are much worse affected than others with hard water and the resulting issues. When it comes to water hardness, the M4 corridor is particularly bad. This includes London, Reading through Swindon, Bath, and Bristol. The home counties including Kent, Surrey, Hertfordshire, and Berkshire are some of the worst hard water areas in England too.
