Frequently Asked Questions

I just purchased a new automatic dishwasher for my kitchen. It requires an initial water "hardness" setting. What is the range of hardness in our water?

Typically, Altoona system water has a hardness value in the range of 2 to 5 grains per gallon or 34 to 85 mg/L.

Taking a bath requires up to 70 gallons of water. A five-minute shower uses only 10 to 25 gallons.
