Don’t Drink The Water!
OK, seriously… Water quality apparently varies WIDELY across the state. In some spots, it’s great. In some other spots, such as our town, it’s so bad that I’ve literally gotten Montezuma’s Revenge multiple times. Even fountain soda pop from restaurants doesn’t taste right and can get you sick if you’re not used to it.
Here’s a pic of a large under-sink filter that we installed to have potable water at home. It’s supposed to be good for 800 gallons but only lasted a little over a month. New one shown next to it for comparison.
Tennessee does ALOT of things right. More jobs, lower taxes and better roads than California. Damned if some water quality standards wouldn’t be nice though. This is third world level stuff here.
Even after THAT filter, we still run drinking water and ice cube water through a filter pitcher also.
