Get a filter pitcher and quit buying bottled water!

Happens every year, EVERY year. First it tastes like algae, then they treat it and it tastes like bleach. I use a filter pitcher but I can still taste it sometimes.

Been tasting it for about 3 weeks, JoCo is also having a taste from their river treatment plant. Wonder if Topeka is having a problem, they are above the influence of our new lake Bowersock.

Lawrence tap water has always tasted nasty.

I have a whole-house carbon filter to get rid of most of the smell and taste, and another carbon filter at the kitchen sink to finish the job. No bottles for me.
