Default How my Municipal Water Stack Up. Check Yours

Hope my Doulton ceramic helps with this. I might as well be drinking chems off the paint shelf...

That's ALLOT of chasing individual contaminants down, to see what filters, filter what?

As they say "hope is not a strategy." Although they make a great filter, I highly doubt it covers you for all those issues. I'd do some research on the interweb...

I had mine tested several years ago and the report read like a toxicology report. But, my daughter, who used to do municipal water testing, said it was pretty normal. Anyway, the filter below covers a lot of bad stuff. I have the bucket setup and really like it.

The link below is the latest thread on momolithic, but there is a much larger/better thread if you care to search..

Let me recommend something affordable.

Install a standard small diameter filter housing under the sink.
Something like this: https://www.lowes.com/pd/A-O-Smith-A...tem/1000576419

Choose between running it directly to your sink faucet cold water inlet or to a separate drinking water spigot mounted to the side of your sink via splitting the cold line.

Use a bone char basic filter cartridge made for standard housings.
Something like this: https://www.highwaterfilters.com/col...rtridge-10x2-5

Not counting setup costs you are looking at $60 to $90 a year in continued costs and don't have to screw around with separate urns. The continuing cartridge replacement costs should be be in parity too.


Props to you for doing what I try to get others here on municipal water to be doing.

Everyone should be finding and reading their local online reports.
