Every since we moved in our new house our drinking water has been high in iron. The water is okay for washing, cleaning, etc. But you can't drink it and a iron filter is too expensive with the upkeep forever changing filters. But if you stop to think about it, it cost us sixteen dollars a week to buy water for drinking. Which is eight hundred thirty two dollar a year. The filter system is only around four hundred a year and more convenient. I think we're going to buy one.
