Differences I’ve noticed between the water in the little Nebraska town where I used to live, and the water in Grants Pass…my hair is much silkier here with the Grants Pass water; the water in my town in Nebraska was SO hard, after about a week my hair was so stiff with my natural shampoo I’d have to wash it…now, it’s totally different; after a week here, using the same homemade shampoo, I have to wash my hair because it’s getting too silky and my hair sticks won’t keep it in place! A complete 180 in terms of hard water / soft water.
Also, the taste is different. In my town in Nebraska, they only used a little chlorine, and nothing else, in the city water, and I could drink the water right from the tap and it tasted fine. I grew water kefir crystals like crazy in Nebraska. In Grants Pass? I can taste the chemicals, and I leave the water sitting out in a pitcher all day long, now; that seems to help the taste. And my water kefir crystals are no longer expanding and expanding and expanding like they did in Nebraska.
It can only be the difference in the water itself. I had my 3 whole house structured water units installed here in Oregon in late November, having had them removed from my house in Nebraska before I moved.
