Terry, here's a good for you. If you can answer it, I'll relay it back to her:
We built our house 8 years ago and used commercial grade copper pipes for the plumbing. We pump water from the North Umpqua River in Roseburg, Oregon. Our filtering system includes a sediment filter with auto backwash and a 1 micron replaceable filter.
We have had our water tested at our local co-op and it shows a copper level of 5.0 ppm from our household water. The water directly from the river does not contain this high level of copper.
I have blond hair and have been battling this copper build-up for the past 8 years. A few years ago we switched all of our electrical grounding from the plumbing to a ground rod in the ground and we are still having problems with the copper. I am tired of hauling water to wash my hair and we are also concerned about the effect this is having on our copper pipes. Do you have any solutions?
