Re: Drinking water test kit suggestions?

While at my local plumbing and heating store a couple of days ago i noticed a undersink ultra-violet water purification system. I got to talking to the guy and i think i'm going to put one in for the very reasons you listed. I'm always leary of water that has been sitting in my tanks for several weeks. My water always tastes fine just not sure of it's purity.
For $300.00 it has 2 pre filters and a ultra-violet light that will kill just about everything. Additionally it comes in 12v. I would have to manually turn it on for about a minute before use so as not to waste electrical. It's fairly small so i'm pretty sure it will fit fine; just more maintenance in the fall.
I have to do some more research just to make sure it will be durable enough and be capable of killing everything. The guy at the store said people use them in their campers all the time.
