But yeah, the water out of the taps up here is pretty fantastic, we're super lucky. I've heard it is extraordinarily hard and practically undrinkable taste-wise in London but I've never actually tried it. Seems like filtering it is common enough tho.
How do these filters that attach to the tap/faucet work? I take it you have to replace them or replace a filter in them or something from time to time? I encountered one for the first time in the fellow's house in Canada and was just like... wtf is this thing attached to the tap?
The shower head thingy was dead easy to attach, just a case of unscrewing the existing showere head, inserting the filter and re-screwing it. The filters on the taps are metal doo hickeys that screw on and the interior filter is a mesh that gets replaced twice yearly.
