I live in the country & have well water, most of which I treat, in a water softener, for "inside" appliances. I use some of this "softened" water
...in the winter, to add humidity to my house via a console humidifier (Bemis by Essix) brand. I need to add ~2.5 gal. of water to the humidifier daily!
There is a noticeable build-up of a white solid on the foam mesh in the humidifier which needs to be removed at least monthly!! :-(
Is there a way to remove the "minerals" in the "softened water" (~2.5 gal.) that I use, daily, in the winter to fill the humidifier??
I have heard of "cartridges" or "pads" for this purpose..but don't how well they work or where to but them.
