|A little surprise
||[ Wednesday, 09 Jan 08 | 10:38 ]
I do a number of periodic maintenance chores on my home, like washing windows. Every six months I take off all the faucet filters and shower heads to clean out the “dirt” that accumulates. This is nothing new, I did the same thing when I was living in California. I also de-scale things here for “lime” as the water is “harder”.
In California I was usually confronted by a little pile of “rocks” in the filter. Sometimes I had to clean the filter more frequently when I noticed the flow of water was restricted.
To my surprise today, none of the filters had any build-up of particles. And then there didn’t seem much lime either as there was little “foam” while using the de-scaling solution.
When gorkabear/Xavi visited here last month, he commented on how my tap water tasted better than his. He lives on the other side of town and his water source is different. I replied that the water here seemed about the same as in California. In Sabadell, Ruben's family uses bottled water for drinking and cooking. I use a Brita filter here as I did in California.
