There's nothing I like better than a very cold glass of water from the fridge (except maybe a very cold bottle of beer after sundown). But my spouse doesn't like or trust the water coming from our tap. She puts our drinking water in a Brita water filtering pitcher. The result is clear, clean water that tastes great for very low cost. It is free of any funky taste, odor or appearance, and is a helluva lot cheaper than bottled water.
