Do I need a water softener in Aurora?
In general, a water softener is not needed to further soften Aurora's tap water, however this is an individual decision. A water softener can further reduce the formation of scale (calcium and magnesium deposits) in your hot water system and make washing easier. Aurora's tap water is comparable in hardness to Lake Michigan water.
