Re: was gardening in heat! now filtered water

You could always get a water filter, at least for the kitchen.  I 
finally caved an bought one from HD a couple weeks ago.  I am amazed at 
the difference in taste!  It was easy to install and fairly small under- 
the- sink type deal (GE Smartwater premium).  I paid about $140 for it.  
My husband likes it so much that he uses that water to wash his hands in 
the kitchen- says it feels cleaner.  Also been using it to fill up the 
cats' water bowls- and they now drink out of those more than the ones in 
the bathrooms.  Interesting.
