We have a Brita faucet filter and a Brita pitcher. We often use them together. Chicago water is supposed to be pretty good and is tested multiple times a day.

I have distilled water delivered by Crystal Springs in the hard plastic 5 gallon jugs.

I stay on my road and I don't change lanes.

We have well water that is VERY hard, so we have a water softener....since so much salt gets put into our water in the process we needed to install a reverse osmosis system...the water tastes GREAT!!!

I don't remember this coming up in the ETL books but it is one of Dr. F's recurring themes on his site.

Basically he says:
Don't drink water straight from the tap.
Do not buy little bottles of water or water in gallon jugs because of the chemicals in the plastic.
The large (5 gal and up) hard plastic water containers are okay.
Carbon block and Reverse Osmosis types of filter system get the chlorine and numerous other toxic things out.
Most of the newer refrigerators with water dispensers have good filters.
Many of the pitcher filters don't do much. They need to be carbon block pitchers.

I have always drunk tap water but over the past week have been reading reviews and decided on the Clear2O carbon block pitcher as it seems the most cost effective and affordable choice for me. I guess I will benefit enough from not drinking chlorine to make a twenty dollar investment worthwhile.
