Re: whole house low water pressure/flow


Any of the houses I've owned with softeners have had them plumbed for the whole house with the exception of the outside bibs (elevated sodium [?] levels are hard on grass and plants) and, in one case, the kitchen cold. I have read this is often done because the higher sodium level may be a problem for some health conditions. The logic I suppose is that consumption and cooking is obviously most common from this tap. I have both a hard and soft bib in my garage which makes it really nice for vehicle washing - no water spots.

Re: whole house low water pressure/flow

Lenaitch.... That makes a heck of alot of sense.....

But... Let me ask.... did you custom build and realize the hard water issues...

it was great preplanning.... or were you just able to redo your plumbing...

I ask... as I've just moved into a hard water area... and the plumbing is "standard". I have installed a water softner and am thinking out your points.

Never stop learning (xcep fer speling en typeing)
