Also, if you can please expand. Which filter do you use, if you use without a filter is the water known to be good in your area, if you get it delivered monthly, do you get it delivered in big glass containers (supposedly that’s healthier) or the regular 5 gallons, do you pick it up when grocery shopping or do you have it delivered from the grocery store etc

We keep pitchers of filtered tap water in the fridge. We all have reusable water bottles that we fill from the pitchers and bring to work/school/outings. Once a year before the summer we go to Costco and buy a big package of disposable water bottles for the kids to bring on camp/school trips and to give out to workers or delivery people or for company to take to the park or whatever.

I have a water cooler and get 5 gallon bottles delivered monthly. I grew up on a water cooler and can't stand the taste of tap or filtered water.

I voted I have an in house filter, but then I remembered something else. Giving away my location here, last year during Hurricane Ida my local tap water got contaminated and was undrinkable for a while, the city gave out free bottled water, one case per family per day. We use those water bottles for school lunches and outings and such, and we still have a couple cases left, close to a year later.

That's insane lol. Would the filter be enough for the contamination?

No, they told everyone at the time that if you have a water filter you can’t rely on it for that situation. We just don’t use a case of drinking water a day.

I grew up with reverse osmosis filter under the sink. Now that I'm married and rent an apartment I'm not installing anything so we have the pur filter on our faucet.

We had a filter installed in the sink cabinet and has small faucet for it next to the regular faucet. Best purchase ever.

We use under the sink filter, recently we added a separate faucet for drinking water 4X filtered.

A question to those using water coolers, how many bottles per month...

I drink daily about 16 cups of water (1 gallon), now add DH and kids... we would need MANY a month

I have a filter you attach to the faucet. It has a cotton ball as a filter, that has to be changed
about once a month.

Sink water with a Brita. Best decision we've made. We drink a ton of water- both plain and for homemade iced teas- so we've saved a lot on drinks.
Most people drink straight from the tap here, but we like the taste of filtered better.
