Thanks Del, great advice. I am probably overdue for a PT anyways. I do use a low poo about once a month, may need to adjust that a bit.

Bypassing the water softener is not an option, due to the rust in the water out here in the country. My skin loves the soft water though, so there is a postive side to it!
