About the author


Hi and welcome to my website. I'm Bill Robertson and I worked my way through school as a handyman. The skills I learned have been useful as I've made changes to my own home. As a father of a 3 children, having a healthy water supply is important. Because the Central Texas well water was so hard, a water softener and reverse osmosis filter were critical.

Central Texas is famous for its hard water and I likes sharing what I learn experience with other readers.
