Hi vishwas81, we use it at my parent's place but here, at my in-laws, they dont believe in water purifier. they simply boil the water and that toio not to an extent of purifing because if you have to drink you have to boil it properly and then when it comes to room temperature you have to filter it up too. but here they dont do all that. they just boil for the sake of boiling and more than half of the time are suffering frominfection . when i came after marriage i too suffered this problem and when doctor told me to use filtered water i staerted doing my water separetly. my in-laws are rigid, they dont wanna change.but i cant compromise with my health. i was in a habbit of drinking filtered and purified water since childhood.

I don't have one right now, but the refrigerator for my new house had a filtration system in the water/ice maker. I think we are getting one for the faucet too.

I certainly do, vishwas81, precisely because I strongly feel that water, which is widely considered as "water of life" by many, should always be very clean before I even consider tinkering with the idea of drinking it. After all, immediately quenching my thirst will never take precedence over my health and wellbeing.

I never drink bottled water. To me it is a total waste of money. Besides that it uses a lot of oil in making the plastic for the bottles and only about 14% of it is recycled. I've known for a long time that many of the bottled water brands are just tap water. That's usually how the businesses work. All the consumer sees is a name so the manufacturer just gets the money. On top of that some of them are harmful in that they have or run a greater risk of having more bacteria, parasites and contamination than tap water.
