Good point. I've used a ceramic/activated carbon gravity feed filter for years and the water certainly tastes better than tap. But who knows if it is as good at removing heavy metals as claimed. And if it is only chlorine that you want to remove from tap water, the best way is just to leave it in a clear glass container in full sun for a couple of days. Removes every trace of chlorine. Oh and the ceramic/activated carbon filters don't remove minerals. I believe only RO or distillation can.

Btw. Greg, very OT I know, but did you decide to stay with any kind of IF protocol?

Stuart.

It's funny how the majority of the people on this site are driven by health and performance, yet, most of the decisions we make have a positive impact on the environment! I find myself defending that I am not a hippie on numerous occasions.

Actually I wrote a whole article about water which you can read here: http://www.dirttime.org/2007/06/27/water-is-life/ and it describes the problems with reverse osmosis and various filters, as well as providing links for sites that help you research the contaminants in your own water.
Something to keep in mind when I buy a house. Thanks.

Why should one have to defend if they are a hippie?

I can't answer that one, all I know is that it's a natural instinct to defend what you're not.
