“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.”

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.

If it works for you, go with it. However,here's just one source of many out there that indicates that distilled water may have some negative health effects. Granted, distilling water will remove a lot of contaminants, but it also removes a lot of naturally occurring minerals, with the result that distilled water only can leach minerals from, and drop the pH of, the body.
