Water quality is a subject that got me worried a bit over the last days. Mark seems to favor tap water filtered with a decent water filter and I've been drinking mostly unfiltered water and bottled carbonated water (which I don't even like that much) until now.
From what I've read so far chlorine and heavy metals seem to be a thing one has to take care of while it might actually be a bad idea to artificially soften the water.
So are you people using a water filter and if so, what kind of filter? I know that quality comes at a price, but I simply don't have that money, so I'd appreciate if anyone would know a decent priced water filter (if you think it's necessary at all). Some people seem to favor the Brita filters, but those soften the water.
Oh, and this is a water analysis I found from the area I live in (I'm from Germany btw), do you think there are any values that are especially high/inappropiate?
Calcium: 66 (mg/l, just like all the other values I'm gonna mention now)
Manganese: < 0.005
Nitrite: < 0.010
Nitrate: < 0.5
Arsenic: < 0.0005
Lead: < 0.002
Cadmium: < 0.0003
Chrome < 0.002
Cyanide < 0.005
Nickel: < 0.002
Mercury: < 0.0002
