Hello,

I would like to use the borewell water primarily for domestic purpose like bathing, washing clothes and vessels etc. At present the water is hard and has a light yellow tinge. I am attaching the water sample test report. I would like to get experts' views on the test report and seek their suggestions for suitable water treatment methods.

It would be really helpful if they can also recommend some good company in and around Chennai that can help in fixing the water treatment equipments.
