I'm very blessed to have good tap water. If I freeze it, and thaw, there is
some white precipitate, gives it a snow dome effect.
One friend (South Carolina) has crap from the faucet, and lives by his Big
Berkey table top water filter. Another friend from Colorado can taste the
forest fire in his tap water.
Have you tried a Big Berkey?

That answers it. High calcium levels is not good. I lived in an area
with Radioactive water. Deep wells around uranium deposits brought
water up with alpha emitters. Caused a problem with the supply as
well as with the waste treatment plant which dumped treated water into
Too bad. I'ved in 8 states and only one place had pure, clean water
out of the tap and that was on the peninsula in Washington state. The
worst was Pennsylvania. I had a house built and on the walk through
the builder told me then that I needed a treatment system, not a
softener. Cost of the system was over $3000 in 1970. When he showed
me the water out of the tap it was slightly yellow. He said that 1/3
of the water supply is artesian well water. 1/3 is Delaware river and
the last third is water from the sewage treatment plant, the reason
for the yellow. Of course he told me it was all legal and approved. We
wouldn't drink it. Water in Arizona has sand in it. I had sand on
the shower floor.
