Since the water treatment was installed, the only way that I can describe the water is that it feels like satin. I guess that it would be a combination between smooth like satin and soft like velvet. I am one who works with my hands all the time so I always have grease, glue, spray foam insulation or whatever on my hands. When I take a shower, the one thing I never try to do is to clean my hands because getting them clean is impossible. The very first shower I had after installation, I came and sat down for breakfast, went to butter my toast and noticed one hand, which was perfectly clean. I then checked the other and it was the same. This water system has blown me away! I feel better and you feel the difference in the water immediately.
