I use an outdoor spigot to fill my kettle (never with a standard garden hose attached).
The plumbing for the spigot is inside my house, & therefore is the same source as my drinking water.
I run all my plumbing, including the outdoor spigots, through a whole house water filter.

As I learn more about brewing, water chemistry is something I'd really like to dive into.

OK, looks like I'll have to make a trip to the hardware store to check out my options. I like the high-flow of the RV filter, but need the kitchen sink faucet hookup in my apartment.

I live and brew in a 3rd floor apartment and am trying to cut the death marches hauling 12 gallons of store-bought Hinkley water (it sure makes my pilsners pop!) in anticipation of a greatly increased brewing season in 2013.

Good to hear. I am interested in building an in-line filter like these. If you know your current water chemistry, is the resulting water chemistry somewhat predictable? (I suppose this question would be better off in the brew science subforum)

Is this a regular problem for anyone?
