Quick fyi..Ann and I got a water softener last month and it has worked well. We are collecting orders to save on shipping and want to know if you are interested. I called the US rep and he said that the price is going up to 499.00 in 2009 and that the web site price is already 499.00. He’ll sell again to me for 449.00, and if we get 10 orders we can save on the $20.00 shipping.
Results we have seen in our home over the last month since installation:* White rings around bottom of glass drinking glasses have diminished significantly. Any dried water white spots on dishes now wipe off easily.* Washing machine water used to just get murky with the detergent; now the detergent forms bubbles. * Shower tiles squeegee off with no dragging. * Rings on toilets have gone away and crusty feel to granite around sink has improved much.*Softer water feel during showering.Waterking Water Softener How does it work? Hard water is caused by Calcium and Magnesium combining into large particles forming Lime scale. This is the white buildup you see on the faucets and shower doors. Saltwater softeners remove these minerals and in the process add salt to the water. Calcium and Magnesium are actually good for you. They are in all daily vitamins. Salt is not good for you and is hard on your metal fixtures. Waterking sends electromagnetic sound waves through the water and pulverizes the large particles of lime scale (calcium and magnesium) and breaks them into very fine particles like you would find in natural soft water. Therefore you have the benefit of soft water and the good minerals of calcium and magnesium without the salt.
