    Hard water is any water containing an appreciable quantity of dissolved minerals.

    What makes Hard or Soft water better?
    For which variety? Yes, it matters.

    For gosankes I want relatively soft water so as to avoid shimmies.

    Remember that the mud ponds of Niigata have very soft water as it is basically melted snows from the previous winter. Mud makes the water opaque...but not necesarrily hard with lots of dissolved minerals.
