comment How do I know if I will drill into a hole in a wall that was already made?
This stud plate idea is the best. Later to find where they are in the finished wall just run a strong magnet over the wall area.

comment How to get limestone out of water?
High mineral content in the water is indeed really problematic in cases of equipment used to boil or evaporate water. It will be less of a problem in your washing machine where the water is not normally boiled or evaporated.
