I'm cured 🙂 My 4 year old daughter is having issues though. She is not on board with cold showers at all. I tried to convert her.. she just screamed. I'll definitely look into that. Thanks for the tip
Your link says it does add salt, unless there's a salt remover down the line.@kevin bingham
No it doesn't actually add salt, it removes magnesium and calcium, then later uses salt to flush itself. I think you would be in for a very nice surprise if you installed one, your water appliances will last significantly longer and your skin and hair will likely greatly benefit as well. Your municipal water is actually designed to be hard water, because it coats the inside of the old pipes that are used through the distribution system, preventing lead contamination and protecting the pipes. That was actually the problem in flint, they changed the water supply without thinking about that. However unless you have ancient lead plumbing in your house, it is detrimental to everything from toilets to faucets to dishwashers, hot water heaters, icemakers, washing machines, and you. If you have antiquated plumbing, maybe it's time for an upgrade, i would suggest either copper or pex.
A water softener removes minerals that create water hardness, one of the most common water quality problems a homeowner encounters. Hard water destroys appliances, leaves filmy soap scum across bathrooms and kitchens, and dries out hair and skin. With over 85% of the United States relying on...www.freshwatersystems.com
I don't like the taste of dasani or aquafina. Deer Park is where it's at, though it seems like they have 2 flavors. Sometimes I think the taste is affected by what I've eaten, but it also seems like it has to do with the batch. They have a really good flavor, and a bad flavor which people who like bottled tap water might prefer.Detroit water department websight. Laid out all the chlorine, fluoride etc. Detroit has some of the best water that I've had to drink. I it's used by several bottled water cos. Aquafina, dasani, la croix, Faygo. At least regionally.
In the summer, when a cold shower feels good, the temp under the house and ground is such that I can't get the water cold enough.Olah!
So we took a dip in 54* LI Sound today after work. It was my first time in since last winter. I was a bit apprehensive about it honestly but had to go to save face with Son and friends. The first 2 minutes were absolutely brutal but go figure, the last 4 minutes were cake and I could have easily gone longer. Gotta say I felt pretty awesome after, for quite a while.
During the tropical storm in August, we lost power for several days so I took cold showers then, was pretty awesome, got used to it fairly quickly, found myself looking forward to them.
But go figure, power comes back and within a day or two, I'm back to hot showers, the inner voice says, "Oh I worked hard today, I need to sooth the muscles, I'm too tired to take a cold shower, blah blah blah....' WAAAAAAAAAAAA
Sir, how would you know, not having tried it, afaik.I have to agree...that's too intense for my body and mind .
I don't think it affects me a bit worse than anyone else. I have been swimming in quite cold water...mountain lakes and the north coast Pacific Ocean. What I do know, and what my post was intending to say, is that I don't enjoy it enough to repeat it much .Sir, how would you know, not having tried it, afaik.
One funny thing Ive noticed about peeps and cold water- most everyone thinks, "oh, cold water is fine for others to jump into but it happens to affect me far worse than others so therefore its not for me." I myself felt this way too at least to some extent, but repetion has shown that Im really no better nor worse suited to it than anyone else.
Fair point.I don't believe mankind has evolved from the primordial ooze into our current state just to freeze our butts off on purpose.
