    A typical sediment or carbon-media filter will not reduce the hardness of water. RO might (I'm not sure) and a water softener will. There are cartridges for whole house water filters that claim to reduce hardness but I don't know how well they work.

    I was printing in the darkroom this afternoon and the Intellifaucet worked fine, I'm planning to do some more tomorrow, but signs are positive so far.

    Everything still seems to be working fine with the Intellifaucet.

    Odd, I just sent in a K250 I bought at auction to descale and refurbish as required. Dave gladly issued an RMA. L

    It's not that he wouldn't repair them, but just that he did his best to talk me out of his doing so.

    Perhaps a new one is cheaper than the repair

    Lot's of thing like that

    Hass does highly recomend his own filters, I am on my second set of Hass filters

    I don't have a whole house filter or RO

    I buy Walmart distilled water 10 gallons at a time, to drink, coffee, developer and fix. I use Hass water for stop and wash

    My negs are clear, no dish soap or Photoflo ever

    I won't drink my tap water

    I know in the past, he's talked me through simple things I could do to my K250 so I would not have to send it in, and he was right on the advice! The one I just got, I told him I wanted him to de-scale it and check the unit since it was bought as a backup and I probably would not install it any time soon and he very quickly gave me an RMA to send it in for a check.

    The Intellifaucet valves have started sticking again today, so perhaps I need to soak them in acetic acid once a month or so as maintenance.
