um, ah, oh my goodness golly gosh.
Not having a reticulated water supply, nor a fortune to buy bottled water? What does one drink? Water from the sky, complete with dead frogs, bird excrement, dust, Brigalow leaves [and flowers, tea coloured tannins] probably a dead lizard, iron oxide [rust], galvanised residues, algae, beatles bodies both fresh and pre digested by the frog prior to its demise.
Hundreds/thousands of Australians were brought up on this concoction, and still survive with this as their only source of drinking water.
I don't drink chlorinated water, hate the taste, and feel like I need another drink immediately after. The next thing I will never touch is ''H2o'' brand bottled water, the most foul taste, Ever! for a bottled product.
Filters, to me most need a slow rate of flow? That's how I see it from early research, that I've not bothered to prove or disprove?
If I need to drink suspect water 5 minute rolling boil, man, fire, food, am I too intoxicated to boil 10 liters per night, let stand to cool while I sleep? I can even distill it using the boiling slightly modified if so facto?
