Is Salem's water hard or soft?

It is considered Soft. Water hardness refers to the concentration of certain minerals, particularly those containing calcium and magnesium. People tend to ask about hardness after reading the owner's manual for a new dishware or washing machine. This is because hardness minerals inhibit the sudsing action of soaps and detergents. In areas of the country where water is very hard, these mineral deposits can damage boilers and block water pipes.
