Re: Water purification

i clean the water tanks every year with a heavy dose of chlorine and a brush (very good access to the inside). i add a bit of chlorine to the tank whenever i take on water. i also have a rec vehicle type filter between the water pump and the faucets. cost about $20 at any rv place - also seen them at walmart.

but the admiral still prefers bottled water. so for drinking purposes, there's bottled water stored all over the damned place.

otoh, if you are truly concerned about the purity of your water, there is only one method that is capable of producing it; steam distillation. suprisingly, there are some reasonably priced units available that will make one or two gallons at a time, either on your stovetop or 110 ac. google around if you're interested...
