After getting my confidence up to investigate our water situation (I had been paralyzed between the foibles of tap water vs. the evils of BPA in plastic water filters) I bought a Zero Water
It's your basic 8 cup pitcher plus a filter, but it comes with a nifty battery-operated water reading device. The idea is their water is so great, it takes out every last contaminate. Zero Water, get it? To be even more fabulous on top of it, I escaped the plastic situation by rigging it up to my own glass pitcher. Observe:
This holds a cocktail I call "nerd water"
Here's the big news. Yes, the filtered water read "000" as expected, but the horrifying part came later when I tested my tap water. 144. Basically, the water that comes out of my faucet is about as clean as a public swimming pool on the last day of summer.
