I envy those of you quarantined with city water. We have a well and a fancy water softening system but it makes our water undrinkable because of the chemicals we have to put in it. This is all the drinking water we have managed to find so far and this amount is not anything out of the ordinary for us.
Before all the stuff hit the fan I had bought this filtered pitcher. I've had and used many brands but this one is the best. We still can't drink our tap water even if it is filtered though. Filtering does not take out the salt content so this water comes from another source.
We have one water line that does not run through the softener and that's the front spigot. I have to climb through the ivy every morning to get a gallon of it for filtering but it works for the critters and cooking.
We just can't put it in our coffee pots or electric kettle because hard water ruins them. It's a good thing I rescued this little old pot from Dad's when we closed up the house. The Mister needs his coffee and he hates the French press.
I can't abide the spigot water in any form so I am rationing little cups of tea made from the bottled water. Hopefully one day I can have a full cup again....or dare I say it-a full pot?
