As for the organic natural crowd, whenever they say it's all natural so it has to be good, I point out that arsenic and strychnine are both "natural."


Too funny! I too have used that those examples, plus cyanide, in discussing such things. :P

When I was a kid, I went to day camp for a few weeks every Summer.

And there , there was a drinking fountain with, I think, spring water.

It was so delicious and refreshing and cool and with a heavy taste of iron.

I remember all the years I was told I needed vitamins and minerals. Now all of a sudden minerals cause "all kinds of problems"?


If you lived with it, I think you'd soon realize how many unwanted things mineral laden water causes like water spots on everything, blocked shower heads, etc., etc..

Well, if a rock falls on your head, that's minerals, is it good or not? :whistling:

I do live with that. Both of our sinks (kitchen and bathroom) as well as the shower stall, all have those accumulated "water spots" that must be scrubbed off with steel wool every time we clean up the house. I have no idea if that means we have "good" water or "bad" water..."hard" water or "soft" water..."clean" water or "polluted" water...or something else entirely.

All I know is that it tastes just fine to me.

Interesting. I didn't know you worked in the water industry.



I don't, per se. I design control systems. But over the years a lot of the projects in the semiconductor, food&beverage, oil&gas, power generation sectors had have water treatment as part of the project and/or needing to be integrated into the control system.

You mention "lead pipes". Is it lead pipes or lead solder on copper and steel pipes?



Both, but MOSTLY the pipes. Up until the early/mid 1980s, the pipes getting from the water main to the entrance of a house or building were pure lead. I'm not sure why, but a guess would be that lead was malleable enough there's less risk of breakage.
