States With the Most Toxic Tap Water
Yeah. Suppose you decide you don't want to drink the tap water anymore. What are your options then? Filter it or buy elsewhere? If you're buying, then how do you best dispense the 5 gallon jugs? Or just buy individual bottles?
I'm currently concerned most with fluoride, chloramines and low-toxic levels of arsenic. If we buy water, the small bottles create too much waste, the 5 gallon bottles need to be dispensed, and then I worry about the hormone disruptors in plastic dispensers and about the toxic metals in ceramic ones.
So then is the only choice a filter? There's got to be a good water filter resource thread somewhere...
Are these filters good? Scroll down the linked page for how it works. Sounds quite promising, but, would be good to hear from those who have used it.
