Titrimetric water hardness determination background the total hardness of water (ie the concentration of dissolved cations such as ca 2+, mg 2+, fe 3+, etc) is commonly determined by the titration of a water sample with a standardized solution of the disodium salt of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (edta) using eriochrome black t or calmagite as an indicator.
