I'm wondering if anyone has well water, rather than city water. We have well water and it's fine for showering and the baby swimming pool etc but we only use the filtered water for drinking and cooking. I was under the impression that was fairly standard operating procedure when one has a well water system.
However, neighbors of ours use our mutual well water for drinking, cooking and all their needs and have never had a problem. They have young children like us and none of their kids have ever been sick (that they know of) from use of well water.
Does anyone have any input regarding the necessity of filered water? We had our well water checked by a lab for content and it is not tainted but I still believe filtered water to be better. So do a lot of our nearby friends.
