RE: Water deposits...


It definitely sounds like lime deposits from water.  I have to watch for
that all the time.  The iron in the water makes more reddish/yellow deposits
that are also a lot of fun to combat.  However, having grown up on well
water with solids in the bottom of the glass of water when the well ran low
during drought, I can deal with a little mineral deposit here and there.
:>) It is amazing what one can get used to.

Blessings,
Bonnie (SW OH - zone 5)
