    Help, I know I have been brain washed into buying
    bottled water (spring/filtered) for many years. Now due to the high cost of gas, I'm trying to cut back of a few luxuries like bottled water.

    I live near Chicago,IL. My area gets treated Lake Michigan water which I'm told is of very high quality and taste. I live in a 30 year old condo that seems to have good pipes and water that has no sediment and or smell. I use it for cooking,mixing koolaid and brushing my teeth.

    I should already know the answer to this question but I could use your feed back. I want to run the faucet for 5 minutes or so and fill a plastic pitcher with a top and let the water cool down in the fridge. I'm some what reluctant to ask this but do you deal with drinking water in this way?

    Like I said I am brain washed.

    Thanks
    Zabe

    Why not buy a Pur or Brita filter or pitcher?

    I did. I brought the 2 gal model.
    I had problems with it fitting in my fridge and
    I did not trust the spigot.
    I tried it for 8 months and was not happy.

    I put a 1/2 gal. pitcher of water in the fridge a few hours ago. If all goes well I'll be a tap water man again.

    I still remain open to your idea's. I'd rather keep buying bottle water but the cost adds up.
