No matter where the water comes from, it is good to filter it before putting it in your body.
- I have used a Berkey Lite with charcoal filters for years and love it. Note that it does require additional filters to remove fluoride and some other particles.
- Another noteworthy item is the Lifestraw -- you should have one in every vehicle and your EDC bag.
I don't always filter water before watering plants; I have seen studies demonstrating no effect on soil microbiology when using chlorinated water. I am aware of folks who do put filters on their garden hoses. Do you? Why? Add here or let me know.
