I recently gave my borewater for testing in a lab in Chennai. I am not able to understand the report and also the type of treatment required for the water.

I have attached the scanned report. Can anyone have a look at it and suggest the treatment required?

Bore Details:

Depth: 123 Feet

Creating national regulator for green nod not possible, tells govt to SC


I was wondering if the salt based water softeners alternatives like electronic/ electromagnetic/ magnetic treatment systems actually work for small applications, eg: apartments. 

I am from Chennai and in my apartment complex, the water is very hard and the showers, bathrooms and sinks get dirty very quickly and need regular cleaning. From what I hear from my neighbours, lot of money and of course lot of water is being spent on cleaning. Using salt based softeners is not feasible as they are too big and the amount of maintenance involved.
