No kidding.  My grandparents had a water still in their basement. They 
both lived to 96, when my dad got a nurse to move in to theri house, to 
cook and clean for them.  She wasn't running the still, they both died 
within a year of her being there.  I got their still in '93.  I've used 
it in SF bay area and the sludge was brownish-gray.  Later moved to 
Tahoe, it was more whitish-grey. Later, I built house here in mountains, 
west of Tahoe on well system of 25 houses.  Now, it's almost pure white, 
but it's still sludge. If you wait too long to clean your still, that 
sludge cakes to sides like rocks.  Imagine what it does to people's 
arteries.

This is exactly the same pseudoscientific nonsense that the local Culligan
man and Kinetico guy tried on me to get me to install their water filters,
purifiers, and softeners. I asked them to leave when they got to this
point. Your body is not at all like plumbing pipes. Not in any way
materially or in biological functioning. This "sludge" is predominantly
harmless or beneficial minerals and does NOT in any case stick to your
arteries or "build up" as. Sludge in your blood or other body fluids. To
think so is...well...I stop here because this level of misinformation or
ignorance helps feed the sales charlatans across the continent who play on
people's ignorance and fear.
Again, do what you wish, but please get the biology right if you intend to
keep the thread going.

Kirk, do you think veins and arteries are tubes that have liquid flowing 
in them?  Do you think they ever get restricted?  What do you think 
restricts them?  Excess rocks (minerals).
Ever hear of kidney "stones"?  These stones are excess minerals that 
your body couldn't get rid of.  That means you had an excess of minerals 
that couldn't be flushed out.

Oh, dude, get your science straight.  Minerals in your arteries?  Is 
this April 1?  You are killing us here.  The #1 recommendation for 
kidneys stones is to drink MORE water (with or without 
minerals).  The level of minerals in your water (well, not YOUR 
water) is so low compared to other sources as to be 
insignificant.   I'm with you Kirk.  Can I be part of your club? 
:)  OK, that's not meant to be mean, but shoosh.
