  • Way too expensive for that filtration ...but if the water is less hard and not full of sediment (No municipal systems are Not adding healthy minerals for our benefit ) no health hazard ... As long as your diet contains the minerals you need.

  • Reverse osmosis systems are $199 or less to buy online. A few bad aggressive sales companies are bad. But that doesn’t change the fact that the chemicals in water are highly carcinogenic.

Just buy a good filtration system online.
