Calcium may be more of a problem. I don't know how Manchester treats its
water, but calcium and chlorine can be added to water in the form of
calcium hypochlorite (try a Google search for water treatment calcium
hypochlorite). The water in Haweswater (if that is still the source) is
probably soft, but what comes out of the tap may not be.
