Does living in an hard water area make vitiligo worse?

I've noticed my daughters vitiligo is less bad when we stay in soft water areas, so wondering if it would be beneficial not to use the water at home as its an hard water area?

There hasn't been any strong evidence linking the hardness of water to the incidence or severity of vitiligo
