SFL here. And untreated tap water is green from decaying organic matter.

I have a 3-stage filter under my sink. In each filter I have a different type of filter to hopefully cover all the bases. The water coming out is crystal clear.

I remember visiting relatives in Gary, IN when I was a kid. The water was so malodorous (sulfur) it made me sick. What a foul stench — you had to hold your nose to get it down. Amazing I still remember that after about 53 years. I don’t think there’s a filter on the market that could make that stuff palatable.

Years ago someone I worked with told me filters are worthless if I wanted pure water. He turned me onto a countertop distiller and we have never looked back. You should see the residue in the bottom after distilling water that I have run through a filter system. Just bought another one, the first one burnt up after 6 years. Only 119.00 and in 4 hours you have a gallon of pure distilled water. They estimate about .11 cents a gallon in electricity usage.You can taste the difference. It takes up about as much room as a toaster.

We have a 3 stage also and a RO on top of that. Wife still insists on boiling the water to remove any left-in chemicals.
We get the filters changed every 3 months or so. Water tested after to check results.
As to the local testing by the 'Water Department'...when I lived in Huntington Beach we could take samples of tap water to the Water Department anytime and they would run a full screen on it.

I was a home brewer and so was the chief of the Water Department. We had some mighty fine water there!

Tap water is one thing, but most people don't think about their shower water. The skin is the bodies largest organ and it absorbs whatever is in your water.
Shower filter anyone?
