If you live in California, particularly if they have home water softeners -- or if you have friends of the salt industry in California -- you need to take a look at a new website "Don't let the politicians take your water softener ." The site offers an easy way for California citizens to register opposition to CA AB2270.
If passed, AB 2270 would allow the government to intrude into a private residence and remove an appliance. If your softener is banned, your pipes, appliances and even clothes will fall apart faster and your energy costs will increase.
The Salt Institute opposes the bill.
The Legislature will act in August. If you value your water softener, the time to act is NOW.
