Such as reverse osmosis? I used it in Florida and thought it was great, but I have since heard it is actually acutely bad for the environment:
"Reverse osmosis, although it is less wasteful than distillation, is still an incredibly inefficient process. On average, the reverse osmosis process wastes three gallons of water for every one gallon of purified water it produces. "

We have an under the sink water filter on our small kitchen sink. We mainly use it when getting water to drink or rinsing veggies or pasta. Otherwise we use the unfiltered water in our main sink. The system was put in by the previous owners. It takes up extra space under the but changing out the filters is easy.

If you have hard water I'd check a water softening system.

Thanks all-we live in northern California-Bay area and have hard water. Water is crazy expensive, so reverse osmosis would not be an option. To tcufrog-what is the brand name of the one under your sink?
