Reasonably priced or not, a filter won't remove dissolved salts.
Requires a softener system.

I guess that's why I'm not having much luck getting rid of this stuff. I'm
about to open a limeaid stand. <G>

Have your water tested for minerals (hardness) and then install an
appropriate water softener. Whether to buy or rent is your choice.
There's nothing like softened water for washing clothes and showering.

There's nothing like scotch whisky for showering, either, but that's
hardly a recommendation. Some like slime, some don't.

No slime, just the feeling of really clean skin.

I've "showered" my insides with scotch whiskey for years and years, and I
can tell ya, I've probably got the cleanest insides of anyone. But, it's
becoming more and more of a problem for me to walk in a straight line.

And an RO filter is what?
Can RO (reverse osmosis) be called a filter? I think of it more as a
process, however the water is pushed through a membrane. They also need a
lot of water to purge them. Not my first choice.

Well, I suppose it can, but surely isn't the type of filter OP was

Lowes is advertising a Whirlpool RO (don't know why I didn't snap to what RO
was -- gettin old I guess) but it said nothing about lime. I emailed the
Whirlpool Customer Service late Friday but have not heard back yet. It's
$179.00 and it that will do it, I'll buy several of them.
