A salesman came over this afternoon to give a spiel on why his water filtration/purification system is the best. In part of his talk he mentioned that the reason the lint trap in the dryer gets covered so quickly is because of all the impurities in our water. I thought the lint came from the towels, sweaters, and other fleecey things. He laughed and said no but that if we had his water system which works by reverse osmosis we would only need to clean the lint trap once a month! :smile: FYI - cleaning the dryer lint trap isn't even a blip on the radar of annoying things in my life. :biggrin1: It really doesn't bother me. He tried to tell me that showering in it made my skin dry and itchy (it doesn't); because the local reservoir was so dirty, afterall they allow boats in it. :biggrin1: :lmao: Apparently he knows firsthand that the local water treatment plant is not up to code so we may actually be getting fecal matter and motor oil in our water. Luckily my bullshit meter went off when he arrived at my door talking to someone on his cell phone. We would like to get a water purifier, are any of them good? If so which one? Where does lint come from? What is reverse osmosis? Why is it necessary for water purification?
