Abstract

In cities or villages the best method of obtaining soft water in the home is to have a city or village supply of soft water. If there is not a city or village supply, plan to get one and use the softest water available. If there is a supply of hard water, have it softened at the source, if it can be done economically. In other words, supplies of soft water must be obtained either from a water originally soft or a natural hard water must be softened. In the United States there are soft water supplies in New York city, Boston, Mass. and other eastern cities. A moderately soft water is obtained from the Great Lakes for Chicago, Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland, and other lake cities. Recently a natural soft water from the Ozark Hills has been piped to the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, giving that city a great advantage over all cities of the southwest.
