We have a drilled artesian well, and a whole-house softener (and pH neutralizer). I strongly
suggest you find a local water testing business, or possibly a college/university - which can run a full battery of tests on your tap water. You especially want to look for heavy metals.
Do you have a TDS
meter, or have a LFS
you can borrow one from? Even after the softener/neutralizer, our TDS
reading is in the high 200's. After the RO
it is 0.
We once failed to change the sediment & carbon block filters on our RO
when needed, and ruined the RO
membrane. Basically, tap water (post softener/neutralizer) was added to the tank for topoff. It took us 4 long months to battle the cyano
that resulted. IMO
, well water is just as bad, if not worse, than municipal water.
