Abstract: The beneficial effect of a high fluid intake on stone prevention has long been recognized. Very few studies have examined the relationship between water hardness and the incidence of stone across the world. There have been conflicting data regarding mineral content and water hardness in incidence of urolithiasis. Some studies documented that higher water hardness is associated with higher incidence of urolithiasis. In contrast, other studies found soft water is associated with higher risk of developing urolithisis. In a country like ours, with a heterogenous water resources and a vast difference in its mineral content, we intend to study the association of stone disease with water hardness
