To my understanding, hard water actually contains more TDS than say, soft water.
More salt and more calcium.
So wouldn't a "softer" water be preferable for our CP's?? Whether distilled or RO were the process?
I too, have been contemplating purchasing an under-the-sink RO system. Either a 5-stage or 6-stage system. I'm tired of hauling water from the grocery store. Currently my tap water is 300TDS according to my meter.
Andrew, how difficult is it to install a full RO system? I have NO plumbing skills, nor do I know anyone with competent plumbing skills. It's in an apartment so I can't mess-up the installation and I'm not informing the bone-head landlord either. Likewise, how difficult would they be to un-install when moving elsewhere?? Is installing or un-installing destructive to your fixtures or drain system?
