The need for good drinking water free of chlorine and tank tastes.
REMEDY: Enchantment took a "tee" off the pressure water system and passed it through a charcoal filter to a separate tap. Presto, in line "Brita" water. This allows one to add an extra tablespoon or 2 of chlorine to tank water without having to live with the taste. By passing the water from the filter through a copper coil in the bottom of the icebox one can enjoy cool drinking water. Both the tap and the charcoal filter are available from your local hardware store as replacements for the hardware in the new refrigerator doors.
DREAM WEAVER asked: Over the past season, I developed an odour in my water tanks (skunky smell). I have tried to correct the problem using baking soda in one instance and then bleach. Nothing seems to work. I winterized the hot water tanks and the water system with plumber's anti-freeze in the wintertime, but I don't think that's what's causing the odour. I would appreciate any information from anyone who has had this problem. There doesn't seem to be any mildew in the tanks.?
MIKRON replied: I put 3 to 4 drops of extract of vanilla in each tank with each fill up. This takes care of the "plastic" odour that my tanks imparted to the water.
