Now isn't there a way to make hard water "hard hard water"? and in by doing so radiation is released and another compund is left behind?

Am thinking that by capturing this radiation it could be utilized as an alternate energy source.

Meant heavy water

Now isn't there a way to make heavy water "heavy heavy water"? and in by doing so radiation is released and another compund is left behind?

Am thinking that by capturing this radiation it could be utilized as an alternate energy source.

Maybe you could release a small amount of heat by adding soluble salts, but this comes with a large price - the stuff you are adding.

As near as I can tell, someone is giving you some bad ideas. Where do you get this? Perhaps you are confusing a couple of different ideas?
