Salt Free Water Softener: Born in Utah!

I love our water softener, but there’s one thing I can’t deal with: 40-pound salt bags. That’s what the honey-do list is for right? Some folks don’t like soft water though.

Two classes of preschoolers got to plant their own pansies for free, as well as tour the store and have a bunch of fun collecting treats (click to see pictures).

Lots of hardware and home improvement stores have paint departments with all those wonderful rainbows of paint chips.
