Amy (ref Post 06 Feb) check your inlet water washing machine hose at the tap on the wall, I have to clear mine of a build up of salts from the filter about every two months.
I have had three plumber call outs in eight years to a) replace two taps in the house, and b) on one visit to remove about a dessert spoon of salts from the cold water elbow exit from the wall to the sink cold water as the water flow was greatly reduced, c) on the other to remove a calcium lump from the cold water flexy hose to the sink. An expensive exercise.

Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
