    PUR at Costco for a tap filter. Cartridges are good for 40-50 gallons and are not "cheap," but are effective. Don't run hot water through them.

    Just stumbled on this thread and have to disagree on the always part. Yes a lot of bottled water is "purified" municiple water but a lot isn't. Dasani and Aquafina are Detroit municipal water but there's been fighting for years locally over water draw by the rural plant Nestle built to bottle their "Ice Mountain" water. The last I read it was drawing 400 gallons per minute out of a local spring for the enormous price of $200 per year. I'm sure it varies state to state but the last numbers I saw for Michigan had about 1/3rd of bottlers in the state drawing off private wells.

    Yup nestle had a plant in my AO. Shut it down a year or two ago, not sure why but it wasn't for lack of natural water.

    I saw a video a few years back about Nestle bottling Michigan fresh water and selling it all to China. I cannot find that video. I did find this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPIEaM0on70
