So after sinking a water bottle I threw it with the recyclables and I realized that there is an entire trash bag filled to the top with empty water bottles which has been filled in less than a month. I realized that it must be costing a lot of cash to keep buying water so I need to do something different with water.

I tried one of those water filters that go over your tap but it was really ****ing anoying trying to use the faucet with a huge filter on it.

Are there any filters that aren't gigantic? And I've been thinking about getting one of those stainless steel bottles but I'm not sure about them.

Can somebody give me some suggestions as to what to do with the water situation?

Thanks.


EDIT: I decided to post all of my disadvantages/restraints/obstacles in the OP because people aren't listening to me.

-Something happened to my town's water years ago and now the have to add chlorine and a bunch of other chemicals to make it "safe" but it tastes aweful

-My house is old so it doesn't have the plumbing necessary to get a fridge with a water tap

I just get it from the tap, tastes fine and isn't more expensive than gasoline.

Have you tried drinking water out of the tap without any filter? I do that and it's pretty good.

Don't buy bottled water, has to be the most pointless thing in all of existance. And yeah, I'm counting the luigi-centered super mario bros games.

Different thing for different countries. Sweden has amazing water in terms of tap-drinkability.

Other countries, not so much.

Nah, those are even more pointless.


Seriously, just use the tap. It tastes fine, and it's basically free. You do know how to do that, right?

Tap water, or get a fridge that pours filtered water out and makes ice.



I can't get a fridge that has a water thing because my house is old and doesn't have the plumbing to put in.

Those who mention tap might want to read the thread again. He distinctly says the tap water tastes awful due to the adding of certain chemicals that do not belong in the water originially.

But to answer your question, if the tap water isn't drinkable what other option is there? Drink your own sweat? Buy water or tap water.

You mean the same chemicals that get added to every water supply in the western world, including bottled water?

it differs from state to state. New jersey water tastes like ass, for instance, while NY tap water is the best in the world.

I usually let my water sit out in an open container because chlorine evaporates faster than water. Makes it taste a bit better.
#29
I just drink tap water. some of the cleanest water in the world coming outta one of the most disgusting rivers in the world. haha. not to mention I did a paper once and discovered bottled water is dirtier than tap water. because the EPA controls tap and FDA controls bottled, the EPA has a much stricter guideline. for example, trace amounts of feces are allowed in bottled water while none is allowed in tap water. the more you know!

I looked it up on Amazon and there was one 1 star review and i read it and the guy was going on and on about how the filters dont really filter, hwo they harbor bacteria and mold, and how you have to replace it every two months.

Which is why you have the chemicals in your tap water, to stop microbes growing in it.

could you buy a solid water filter? not sure how much it would help with the taste, just throwing it out there
#36
Get a brita (or whatever brand) pitcher. It's a little bit of a hassle to fill it at first, but if you put water in as you take it out it just becomes habit.
