Default Home water purification

What is everyone using? I am considering the Ionics water conditioner and reverse osmosis. And since this is in the GD section the water will be used for washing the boat

What is the reason for needing the filtering system? I don't think you have kids but filtering systems actually take out fluoride that is benificial to their health.

Have one at home, good product. Some models do not filter out fluoride.

Look at UV systems. If your looking to kill Ecoli and such the reverse os. won't do it even if they say they will. One way to remove some chlorine is filters that remove it. The uv lights can be expensive to maintain but work.

A lot of the time bad smelling water is the anode in the water heater. Just pull it out and put a plug in it. The heater may not last as long though.

I have a 5micron in line followed by a 1 micron in line then Pure water filters at the sink. So showers and laundry water get some filtering and drinking water gets more. The 5 and 1 micron pre-filters are key, the Pure filters last much longer then. Works well. Fairly cheap, very low maintenance, changes filters now and then.

Here's where i got it all

If you are just looking for soft water, get a water softner. Your skin actually bebefits from some chlorine in the water, and the chlorine is not what makes it hard.

I know its not just the chlorine. I am looking at the water softener and a rev Osmosis for drinking.

Actually Chlorine has no benefit for your skin. It strips the skin of its protective layer and causes dry and itchy(this is what kills me) skin.Which
leads to cracking, premature aging, wrinkles and inhibiting the skinís vital function of protecting the body.

Most Water has as much if not more chlorine in it than a swimming pool.(if it is not well water)

I know this from being a competitive swimmer for 14 years(Hurrican swim club) and doing research to find some sort of relief from the itchiness.
