Scale is our biggest water problem, more so since we’ve had a tankless water heater installed and the scale bits continually clog the aerators in all faucets. We draw from a well, have no odor or discoloration issues going on, and actually the water tastes great, just like Ice Mountain water
I have several reasons for not wanting a salt based system. Storing salt, adding salt, the sliminess, the way it tastes. Also the township is looking to limit water softener discharges to our sewer system because the salts remain in the effluent and are transferred to the soils.
Mostly our water is fine, it just produces extra minerals that need filtering out somehow, any suggestions?
