Default Hose water filter

I made a hose water filter today for under $25.

Bought a shower-head filter, which claims to remove about 76% of chlorine taste and odor. Also got a brass Hose-to-Faucet piece, and a small PVC connector for the bottom of the filter. Really pumps out a lot of water, and it really does remove the "hose water" taste.

In some places, you can really smell the chlorine in the water. This helps remove that smell.

Pick up the Omni whole house filter at Walmart for $27 and get 3/4 MPT to Hose male and female adapters. It should be just over $30 and you'll have a unit that accepts replacement cartridges at only $4.50 a pop. Another bene is that it has way more carbon so you can run it faster.

Here's the filter. I bought it at Home Depot for $19.95

Then just a hose-to-faucet fitting.
