Check the quality of your tap water at home. You can get water testing kits from the hardware store. If the drinking water in your area does not meet with your standards (that means odor, too, because if it doesn’t smell good either you won’t drink it) use water filters. Water filters can be mounted right onto the faucet, under the sink, or to a pitcher (such as Brita®). Initially the cost can run from $20 to over a $150, plus your time for installation but you’ll make up for the expense and the cost to our environment in no time.
