I don't boil my tap water, but I do use it through a PUR 3-stage filter.

Two Thousand years of civilization and they still haven't figured out how to have the hot and the cold water come out of the same tap.

Why do you let your tap water sit over night. What does this do?

come on, even though the vessel itself is probably made in China you can't find a local place to buy it?

If the chlorine used to sanitize the water by the municipality is the gas form, it will simply evaporate out of the water..

An old NYC trick : Take a old plastic milk jug, fill it with tap water, let it sit with the cap off overnight in the fridge. The next morning, good tasting water without the chlorine/bleach smell and taste.
