Boiling water

I was always under the impression that boiling water would increase
the hardness of the water (both DH and GH) because as the water is
boiled, it evaporates.  Therefore, with less actual H2O molecules, the
concentration of dissolves solids increases.
  The reason you get a precipitate when you boil the water is because
the concentration of the DS becomes so high that it can no longer stay
