Water Softeners Comments
WATER SOFTENERS: Arising From the Bathroom Shower Vapor Any that forms on plants grown there should be free of chemicals, being close to distilled water, and a promoter of short humidity. A85-332 0
WATER SOFTENERS: Resinous Units Can be used safely for hard water high in soluble salts, and the end product is similar to distilled water high in initial cost; many industries use them. AH86-96 0
WATER SOFTENERS: Simple and Economical Solution Bicarbonate hardness is eliminated by a "weak acid" ion exchange resin, a commercial process marketed as a Duolite C-4338 Tank; for particulars refer to A85-334 0
WATER SOFTENERS: Using "common Salt" The main factor not fully considered in transforming a healthy collection of cymbidiums to a dying one was the fact that common salt was used as a water softener; refer to OR77-37+ -- water from a water softener = it should never be used on orchids. A72-1100 0
