%{hardness} %{hardnessUnit}

This is a measure of the concentration of dissolved calcium + magnesium found in water.
On the low end: slightly hard water may cause your client's hair to be dry or dull.
In the middle of the scale: clients' hair may be rough or limp.
At the highest end: you will see + feel more extreme buildup that can lead to breakage, discoloration + unexpected reactions during services.

%{ph}

This is a measure of the amount of hydrogen (H+) ions in water.
Below hair's optimal range (<4.5): while hair is generally ok at lower pH, extremely acidic pH will irritate skin + scalp. It is unlikely to see tap water pH in this range.
Within hair's optimal range of 4.5-5.5: clients experience minimal cuticle swelling with less frizz, better color preservation, and reduced protein loss.
Around 6-7: your client's hair cuticle starts to swell more which leads to color fading, tangles + breakage.
Alkaline (8+): client's hair is susceptible to severe damage and extreme color fading.
