Sure would make it easier if the installed water filter had a bypass.
I would rather drink well water than treated water, but the well probably has more microbes. With the nearly constant flow of water in our home systems, those few microbes shouldn't bother us, and we probably become immune to them as we continue to drink the water. But sitting in a tank for 2 years, those little puppies probably mulitply, and that is where the problem could arise. Even with treated water, there is no guarantee that it won't happen. I figure every time I add more treated water to my tank, it might take care of some of the old water, but not sure if that is how it works or not.
NWJeeper mentioned in another thread about a product called Taste Pure. A quick internet search turned up this: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...reshener/18634
. It doesn't mentioned getting rid of bacteria, so not sure how good it is for that.
Maybe NWJeeper can chime in here with what he uses.
