Chloramine is a disinfection agent comprised of chlorine + ammonia used as an alternative to chlorine in some city water treatment facilities. They use chloramines for two big reasons: (1) chloramine is less reactive, so it does not create as many disinfection by-products as chlorine, and (2) chloramine is more persistent, and remains in the treated water through the distribution network all the way to the taps in the homes the treatment facility serves. For customers with chloramine in their water, we offer the EQ-400. The EQ-400 features upgraded catalytic activated carbon media , which has a higher surface point and is able to handle the aggressiveness of the chloramine for a longer period of time than the standard coconut shell carbon used in the standard whole house systems. The EQ-400 is available for purchase by calling the Aquasana Water Specialists at 866-662-6885.
I have a question. I play in a metal band, it’s really thrashy black metal/death metal fusion kinda stuff. We tune down to drop A. We love the sound of such a low tuning, but when it comes to recording, we’re having problems getting the bass right. Those same low mids you recommend cutting absolutely dominate the sound, and there’s very little sub – it’s all barky, muddy mids that doesn’t cut through the mix, and no push, no warmth, no thickness. The bassist uses good, thick strings and changes them regularly. He’s had it set up at a shop. He’s using some pretty fancy EMG pickups. But no amount of EQ, compression, mild distortion – nothing – seems to fix it. What would you recommend we do to fatten up the low end and add some serious heaviness, and get rid of the gross low mids? We’re doing DI for the bass, but can use an amp and mic. Though we’ve already tried that too, and still had the same problems.
