San Juan Basin Health Letter – Drinking Water Hardness and Your Health AWC water is moderately hard between 14 and 21 grains. This hardness is naturally occurring Calcium and Magnesium, essential minerals for human health, and it is safe to drink. Talk to your plumber about managing for hardness in the plumbing in your home. Keep the rinse agent dispenser in your dishwasher filled and add a teaspoon of “Lemi Shine” (powdered citric acid) to your detergent every load and the glasses will sparkle. Follow the directions for cleaning your coffee maker with vinegar and soak shower heads and faucet heads in vinegar a couple times per year.
