Calculator for Total Hardness Conversion

Enter hardness (ppm) of each applicable substance below. Hardness will be shown in Calcium Carbonate (CaCO3) equivalents. Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Manganese are listed at the top of the form. To include additional substances, scroll down below the Total Hardness result. To minimize hardness leakage and save up to 40% of your salt, check out our Zero Hardness Water Softener.
Most Common Substances
Calcium (Ca++) 
Iron (Fe++) 
Iron (Fe+++)
