Forbes article on most toxic cities--Philly ranked worst for water

My friend, Jane, master researcher, who alerted me to Philly's worst water ranking, found a great and relatively inexpensive water filter that combines reverse osmosis filtering (a system that does involve wasting some water, which is why we're only doing this for our drinking water in the kitchen) and carbon block filtering (which, on a smaller scale, is what Brita does) at  As one of his many wife-sponsered Spring Break projects, my amazing husband installed ours--it took four hours.

This went where our sprayer was, the sprayer is still connected, but stores under the sink now.

Oooo, filtery.

The big filter.
The installation guy.
A clean cup of water.
