Floride and chlorine in water supply definitely don't help

psomom, see if you can get a filter like this one if water a problem,it may help in a small way, all things added may reduce discomfort,screw on and thats it, electric or thermostatic, it was cheap and may help a little , my skin used to suffer a lot when i was young with horrible hard water on my skin, i used to scratch and bleed lots ,hard lime scale can be very irritating on the skin, i wish you well

The water quality is superb where I live but I lived in Hampshire for a while and it was like drinking emulsion paint.

That's great news John. South Africa's water is very soft but I guess it depends on where you stay of course. Good luck and shower in style ;)

Hi John, the metals in the water might be a problem for me at the moment. Do you know anything that takes that away? I am very sensitive at the moment. I know, I am taking care of my immunesystem, but in the mean while I would like increase al, even small, triggers.

Hello Millionways,This filter will help, you can buy them with the filter inside the shower head, you buy the shower head, yes this takes away some of the harmful stuff, i have noticed now since i changes my filter, you can buy them on amazon or ebay,, yes winter approaching so, i will up my vitamine D intake as the sun is going though we have had warm days at the moment in the uk but cold mornings and evenings, its a battle but we keep trying to keep these flakes at bay, i got 2 hot holidays coming up, one in 20 days and other 3 weeks after so, i hope i can keep my flakes down as when its gets to december, ooooh its gonna be cold until end of march , :)
