Then get a water softener. The system remove minerals (such as calcium and magnesium) which are deposited (on your skin or tub) when the water evaporates. The house has a water softener and it is taking awhile to get used to. And I’m not sure if it is unhealthy since it uses salt to break down the minerals. We drink the tap water (gasp, but it’s filtered) and cook with it so we’ll be ingesting more sodium than normal. I haven’t been abnormally thirsty so it can’t be too much.
There is a noticeable difference in the water. I’m not sure if it is good or bad, but I never have that squeaky clean feeling. Whether it is the dishes feeling oily or showering, it feels like a gallon of conditioner was dumped on you and now you’re fighting to wash it off. So I’m rinsing the dishes more and taking longer showers since I’m spending extra time to “wash” the soap off. On the plus side, we don’t have water spots on our glass shower door. Anyone else have the Culligan man stop by? How do you like it?
