on the topic of water chlorination
chlorine is necessary to get water from A to B without bacteria multiplying in it
but once it reaches your mouth it is not necessary

we are biotic
there are more bacteria in our gut than we have cells in our body

chemicals tend to be selective in their killing and create an unfair advantage for those which live through the chemical exposure (whatever it may be)

people take probiotics to restore gut health but another to consider are prebiotics which foster the growth of beneficial bacteria and fungi
a healthy population of beneficial organisms make food sources unavailable to harmful organisms

this is why roundup is bad for you despite that it is not directly acting on your cells(so they say)

anyhow before i start to go more and more off tangent

i usually fill a kid pool with tap water to allow the water to warm up and off gas chlorine for 24hrs before watering with it

i recently bought this:

canadian source you may find better prices....

in the home i use a berkey
