Well, I ordered a new filter as I was going to need a new one soon, and that fixed the problem. With the old filter not really being that old at all(2 months) I guess I really need to do something about my hardwater. I have already planned to install a whole house water filter system. I even have all the parts. But I am seriously thinking about a water softener. Any thoughts on water softeners and what about no-salt softener? Thanks.
