Maybe she was a little freaked out that you were drinking water from a gas station bathroom. I think I would be too!

In my defense I will say it was a pretty nice bathroom in a well kept big chain convenience store. In trying to keep the story shorter I omitted the part where in curiosity I asked her if she drank the water and she answered no with a duh! look on her face.

My Pur water filter has a little red indicator that shows when it needs to be changed. Probably every 3 months or so. Filters are kind of expensive but you can usually by them on-line for cheaper.

Bottled water is the new fur. I struggle to give it up. The bottled water industry has convinced many people that tap water will kill you. I drink both, have been drinking tap water in L.A. for almost 40 years and no bad health so far...

Yes, the pipes make a huge difference.

This story remids me of when I worked with juvenile addicts. Many were convinced that different water came out of the kitchen faucet and the bathroom water was dirty.

I live alone, so they usually last at least 3 -4 months. I think they are about 8 bucks a piece. Cheap if you are a bottled water drinker.
