Hard water problems in Manila?

We’re beyond excited to move into our new house, but when we last visited, I noticed that the brand new fixtures we installed already had *gasp* water stains.  We asked around and found out that our new neighborhood, although very nice, has hard water.  Sorry, first world problem, I know.  But seriously, hard water brings a lot of problems – build up of residue in pipes, stains on fixtures and shower walls (my pet peeve), not to mention dry skin and buildup on hair (!!!).

My husband tasked the Part Time Homemaker with reading up and finding water filtration systems within Metro Manila.  I kept putting it off thinking that it would be a snap, but finding a water filtration system here is much less common than I thought.  I checked online and there are so many types of systems that are available – in other countries.  Hahaha.  :-)  Anyway, I finally stumbled upon Aqua Add-on Systems Inc, website here and they appear to have a home filtration system that will cure our hard water problems.  They’re scheduled to visit the house tomorrow, will let you all know how it works out!

If any of you know of any other water filtration company/provider, please do let me know.  :-)
