Hi Doc,

I live in Centurion(PTA) and I have noticed that there is a lot of Lime in the water especially in the kettle after boiling it .We have to clean it out every now again or else it just becomes so think of this white gunk,weto cleanit we normally use some vinigar and boil the kettle this is fine for the kettle but what is this stuff doing to our bodies, and are there any water filter on the market that can filter out the lime?

Limey, most commercial water filters will take care of it. Good luck.
