If you know me personally, you will know that recently I had a baby girl that turned one this July. One of the big problems we had was with her is dry skin and battling her sensitive skin conditions. We tried lotions, coconut oil, cremes and we found that when my wife and daughter went to Newfoundland to visit her family, the skin conditions cleared up. I grew up here in Alberta so all I have ever known is hard water, but for the sake of my daughters health, my wife and I decided to install a water softener. Well wouldn’t you know, less than 2 weeks later all of her skin conditions were no longer visible and seem to be cleared up. Edmonton has fairly hard water and if you have a baby with skin problems then you may just want to look at installing a water softener in your home. They can be installed for around $1500, but in my eyes, you can’t put a price on health.
