I am getting the feeling that KATI is a great solution for people with hard
and alkaline water.  KATI will replace the calcium and magnesium ions with
H+ and the H+ will neutralize the carbonate in the water to reduce pH and
produce CO2.  And the KATI is rechargable with HCl, which is commonly
available.  And there is no waste water.

This sounds too good to be true.  Is there a catch?
