    Having lived in glasgow, and worked in london, yes.

    The difference isnt that significant.

    Don't confuse taste with quality. You'll tend to like what you have become accustomed to drink.

    In general hard water is better for most people as contributes a supplementary contribution to total calcium and magnesium intake, but too much can have negative effects for some people. The effects are relatively small either way.

    As for quality you'd have to see the lab reports on your local source to compare. Water being hard or not won't be the main concern for quality.

    Surface water held in reservoirs and taken from river have a higher chance for contamination compared to groundwater sourced.

    BTW Seaham water only barely classes as hard, damn northern pansy's. :p You need to come down to Kent to taste the really hard stuff!

    We pay £27/month to severn trent, 2 adults 1 child, showers every day, bath a couple of times a week, jetwash the car every couple of weeks, also have an inflatable hot tub which gets refilled 3-4 times a year, plus we flush a couple of hundred litres down the drain every month making RODI for the fish tank... Your bill seems high compared to that?
