    transform or turn, make

    Could you please tell if my sentences sound proper English?

    1) The presence of calcium and magnesium in water causes water to be hard.

    2) People use tools to transform/ turn/ make hard water into soft water.


    Thank you for your repy.

    Re: transform or turn, make

    Any of the words "transform/turn/make" would be OK. I have an objection to the word "tools"
