I hope I am not retreading old ground here but I wanted to share this is the most appropriate thread, I might repost in another in case I get the wrong one, but on a trek to Bunnings today I picked up something I've been thinking of that'll help process and then store some filtered water and maybe address some of the queries around chlorine also.
It's an inline filter used for a caravan and it's good for 6 months and the attachments are for a standard garden hose so that's a blessing for anyone buying bottled water, waiting on the kitchen tap filter or using unfiltered water. It's less than $25 and I think it's a corker. Sterilising equipment not a bad idea of course and makes it easy to set aside water to refrigerate for the coming warmer months.
What do you reckon?
