Hardness test kits are expensive, and you'll only use it once, to determine the tap water hardness. Hardness is unlikely to change in the tap water unless the water supply uses another source for their water. Take a sample to your fish store and ask for a hardness test. But get the numbers, for GH and KH. "OK" or "normal" tells you and us nothing.
