I have read through this thread and it "sounds like one of my long winded posts" (even though I try to stick with the basics)!
The "way that I think of" Kh (although simplistic*) is the quantity of calcium present in the water.
The "way that I think of Gh (although once again simplistic*) is the quantity of calcium and magnesium present in the water.
* Please keep as I refer to me â€œin your brainâ€ my main post.
The hobbyistâ€™s definition of hardness varies significantly from the populate definition of hardness.
The populate definition, in my words of softness (ie. lack of hardness), is what type of water makes my soaps work?
My definition (although again simplistic) of softness is water (H2oO) which is virtually free of minerals (whether they be calcium, sodium, potassium, etc)
