I stopped using them when I turned one upside down and saw how filthy the underside of the tap was.
Bought a filtering system. Much better.

I had a jug once, the brand was "DETH" lol.

I think boiling your water and putting it through a filter is pretty good. But I don't think you necessarily save money, if you buy a reputable brand from a proper vendor.

They're available all over, even in the countryside. Just show then a picture. Aeon has them, and so do several shops near Wat Moha Montrei. Replacement filters also available at all those places, though technically I think you could just pop the charcoal in an oven to reuse it. There's also a ceramic element and a few other layers of I recall correctly.

Boiled PP tap water for 12 years & still alive, no adverse effects. Not too sure on the taste as I rarely drink that water, usually I'll make a tea or coffee with freshly boiled water.

For drinking water that I actually want to taste, I grab a box of San Pellegrino, about $20 lasts over a week with wife/son also drinking & I go through the stuff quickly, a single, more conservative dude could probably stretch a box out for a month.

So funny, I mentioned this yesterday and the photo showed up today on my FB feed.

After reading this thread, i cracked open one of my drums from Hi-Tech and thankfully it's clean and nozzles are aged but relatively clean. We go through 1 drum every 2 days and so far, no issues in the past few years.
