Do any of you Truck Guys have any experience with

a Under Counter Drinking System ? For Christmas I want to get the wife one .

I never needed one living in the country with the most pure water one could imagine ,it had no rust or calcium build up and no salt taste..

But now ,,we are at the mercy of the Cities Water System ,WE JUST DO NOT LIKE THE TASTE OF OUR WATER and TRUST what is in it that they think is good for us


I read up and found this
The chemical element chlorine is a corrosive, poisonous, greenish-yellow gas that has a suffocating odor

Question is ,, what is one you would say is a good one or what should I be looking for to get the best there is our there

An example of what I think we need is this.

. Pelican premium Under Counter Drinking System (we have one that we fill and put in the fridge ,,but want one under the sink now,)

You can get a whole house filter at big box stores with changeable filters that go where the water supply enters the house .

Reverse osmosis is the only way to go for drinking water. Lowes has a nice under sink system for under $200 and is easy to install.

I have 2 whole house filters and a water softener where water comes into the house as well. It’s a nice setup, appliances and fixtures stay free of calcium and mineral deposits.

As I stated ,back at my home I lived at for 44 years I did not need any water aids at all..

So my question is this to you who has a whole house water softener... Where does your water softener hook to your cold water line ? out side the house ,,under the house ??

I have a shut off valve in the main bath closet and down under the closet and under the house in the crawl space ,,a water line comes up out of the ground from the street .

How would I install a water softener at that locatiion and maintain it ?

There is more to learn I know ..this one thing is a good start to tell me what I am up agianst to get it done.

You can filter, reverse, or whatever but your water will still be the city water they run through the ringer and mix in whatever they think you should need. I am spoiled by naturally good water here. If I moved to where I had city water I'd buy spring water for drinking and not bother trying to make crap water seem better for drinking
