How to Test/Know if You’re Watering With Soft Water?
We recently purchased a home in the Phoenix area that has both a drip watering system and a water softner. I want to determine if the drip irrigation system is using the softened water or bypassed water. All the plumbing is inside the walls and ceilings and I don't want to tear into the house to map the plumbing system. I was thinking I could perform some kind of test but have been looking online for a clue on how to do this and have found nothing. Is there an easy way to determine this?
Check with your local water department or agricultural extension office to see if they can test your sample. Check Amazon or eBay...or your local garden center for a test kit.
