Hello Gents,

It's a question that I really wonder the answers about it. Here in Turkey there are a lot of sellers trying to promote their products. There is one thing they have in common: They all say "%50 of the people in US have a drinking water treatment system (Reverse Osmosis) installed in their houses."

I really wonder whether its true or not.

Do you have a water treatment system in your house ?

Yes, whole-house water conditioner and a reverse osmosis under the sink.

My apartment does not have a water treatment system and the city water that comes out of the tap services my shaving, cooking, washing, and bathing needs. While I would prefer the soft water I had in New York City, the water here in San Diego is quite serviceable for everything I do that requires H₂O.

No need for one where I live. Good old tap water works just fine for my household. Unfortunately, however, we tend to take our abundant and safe water supply for granted and often squander it without a second thought. Having been raised in Southern Africa I have first hand experience of what life is like with a water supply that is neither abundant nor safe...how soon one forgets.

I would fond it a little hard to believe that 50% of Americans have in home water treatment systems. That being said, I would say that almost all drinking water has been treated in some shape or form.

I use a Mavea XL water pitcher to filter the funky smell/taste from my drinking water, other than that I use nothing.

We distill all our drinking water (including tooth brushing water).

I always thought having my own still would be way more fun than this.

The only water treatment I have is a reverse osmosis system under my kitchen sink.

Do you think it should be used, or effective as you imagined?

I'm no water expert or anything, but I did have my water tested maybe 2 years ago - both water from the faucet (without any filtration) and then water from the RO system and the water from the RO was much cleaner in terms of filtering out the garbage.

Our water, here, in Vancouver is wonderful out of the tap, but we do have a filtration system to try to remove some of the debris or smaller elements. However, we don't really need it.

Water softener and reverse osmosis for drinking. Lathering soaps has been sooooo much better since the softener. And I haven't drank so much water since the r.o. Water. It tastes fantastic.
