That article is very deceiving. Even though I agree with some of his verbiage, his math is terrible. He's taking hardness, turning it into MG/l then telling you that is the amount of sodium you're...

The rock is for decoration only. The pitless adaptor is made to sit out in the open. I would be more concerned about the pipes etc under the home. That's probably where the frozen items are.
