I became a distributor in 1982 and have used the same Midi for over thirty years. I have had to do some repairs on it (still has the original coil). It shines a little more from polishing it. I use a Midi Classic at another house. Says something about the quality.
I have used distilled water for many years because of kidney stones. Looking at the water quality thats available, it’s well worth the effort even if I never had kidney stones.
My Daughter gives her three German Shepards and cats distilled water, that’s all they ever had.
