just fit a drinking tap with in-line filter under the sink ,much cheaper , kits are 20+
fill the kettle from that  :y
carbon filters remove chlorine and chloranine so water should not be stored (in jugs in the fridge etc ),for any length of time.
plus you use more electricary to boil fridge stored water (it's colder ,unless your fridge is u/s)

^^^This. I use Pureflo. Replace the granules and carbon about every 6 months. :y





How much does the granules cost shack ?

I run our's through a 5 micron in-line sediment filter first(gets rid of silt dirt etc, you'd be surprised  :o )
,then via in-line activated carbon filter (removes chemicals )
good enough for us to drink  :y
the Koi are much more fussy about their water quality though  ;D

Water filters....that's what Tony Blair and the metropolitan elite use. ;)

The great unwashed proletariat such as myself take the water as it comes. ::)

I'm sure the chewy bits from your well keep you in fine fettle m'Lud, especially winding up 50m of cable with a 10l bucket on the end of it several times a day. :y :y :y The hole in the ground for the outside toilet with its sheets of torn up newspaper must save you having to keep filling the new fangled indoor flush system and jogging once a week to your local market for a roll of Bronco. :o :o :o There might even be one or two third world people jealous of such luxury living. ;D ;D ;D

Izal was simply old-fashioned grease proof paper given a fancy name. Nothing would stick to it, especially shit, which made it 'unfit for purpose'...... :(
