Lost sense of taste w/softener

12 years ago

I know this sounds crazy, but I hope someone can help me with this.

I've lived in my house for 31 years using well water. I LOVED my water, but when we remodeled our kitchen last year, we decided to install a water softener to protect our new appliances from our slightly hard water. That part is working great, but after a short time, I realized I was losing my sense of taste. My wife poo pooed my complaints until she too noticed her taste had been affected.

Everything taste really bland and, while I can discern some taste, NOTHING taste right.

The Kinetico people who installed it said they have never heard of that, but I can't be the only one to experience this.

I wondered if a R/O system would help. I'm willing to try anything.

Thanks for any suggestions.
