Objective: The point of our investigation was to think about the presence of hypertension in individuals devouring hard water or new water and level of hardness, in individual water assets in Lahore Punjab, Pakistan. Methods: A cross sectional investigation was led in Mayo Hospital, Lahore from March 2019 to February 2020. There are two wellsprings of water supply in the territory; downpour water/hard water. 340 individuals were incorporated. Individuals > 18years old enough, living in Lahore for > 5 years were incorporated. Individuals having persistent kidney infection, diabetes, or ingesting hostile to hypertensive medications/oral calcium supplements were barred. Segment highlights, Body Mass Index (BMI) and pulse were recorded. Water test was checked imposition. Hardness of > 180 ppm was viewed as hard. Hypertension was looked at be-tween individuals devouring hard or new water. p<0.05 was considered measurably huge. Result: Out of 340 individuals, 80 (23.5%) had hypertension; in individuals burning-through hard water 38 (20%) were hypertensive while 42 (28%) individuals burning-through new water were hypertensive. This distinction was not discovered to be measurably critical. While testing the hardness of water assets, the degree of hardness was discovered to be high, 3 out of 4 supplies; which were not reasonable for human utilization. Conclusion: We infer that hypertension is not any more typical in individuals taking new water than hard water; however, the underground well water in region of Lahore has elevated levels of hardness.
