Allof us in Guanacaste are affected by the calcium levels in our water and seebuildups of calcium deposits on our kitchenware, showers and swimming pools. Adevice called the Calcium Tamer water conditioner can neutralize the calciumand lime molecules in our hard water by passing them through a magnetic fieldin the water pipe, creating soft water that will not leave residue. The deviceis inexpensive and makes a dramatic difference as soon as it is installed. Formore details, contact ChristianLemouche, who will come to your home or business andevaluate your needs, at calcium.tamer@gmail.com or8322-7037.
