A chlorine/heavy metal filter is a good idea, too.

water purification... I did it myself with iodine in the Himalayas once upon a time...  I remember many others that tasted foul... chlorine based...   are there "nice" tasting ones about now? 
... Make sure you live before you die.

I got one for my shower, since i moved out of London the water here smells literally like a swimming pool.

I found out Severn Trent use Chloramine.

I pour my drinking water from the showerhead now, no smell, good activated charcoal filter and only 6 to filter 10K gallons or 1 year, whichever comes first.

The U.S government issued a rare public warning about hacking campaigns targeting energy and industrial firms, the latest evidence that cyber attacks present an increasing threat to the power industry and other public infrastructure.

The hacking described in the government report is unlikely to result in dramatic attacks in the near term
