Not something I've seen here. Out in the sticks, our water is loaded with manganese which tends to lead to crap brown/black stains.

I must look those up.

Something along these lines, but not from Walmart. I hate that place.

Our water doesn't need softening, there is essentially zero calcium and magnesium in it. However, there's a load of iron and manganese, mostly manganese I think.

I used to work in water treatment (at the waste end) so must see if anyone from 35 years ago is still around there.

I find water high in iron does horrible things with the Kenyan coffee I drink in town. It is undrinkable with iron-laden water.

I visited one of my local B+M and was giving them grief because our neighbours to the south were enjoying Black Friday sales and I wasn't - I guess I must be a convincing fellow - got a 30% off deal on any RTA/RDA.... got me a 13/9 Good

All right!! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Be honest, don't spare me any negative thoughts. I didn't design it, after all. I just made it big in Scotland.
