English term or phrase: grain water
The text is about foam in cleaning compositions, in a graph I have "grain water" (opposed to "soft water"), but it is not mentioned in the remaining text.

Acqua con maggior durezza
Explanation:
The Number of grains is used to measure the hardness of water. I’d translate “acqua con maggior durezza” opposite to “acqua con minor durezza” per soft water.

One grain per gallon (gpg) is equivalent to 17.14 parts per million (ppm). Water hardness can be measured in gpg or ppm, but gpg is the most commonly used measurement
