I use 52" x 13" pressurized whole house filter filled with 100kg of Calgon catalytic carbon to remove toxic chems from water. Media needs to be replaced every 5-7 years.

Why waste money when you see so many bangalas/prc workers drinking directly from water taps yet there're no incidents?

Chloramine in tap water is inactivated by the mammalian digestive process.
It however is lethal for our fishy friends - and also for dialysis patients if the chemical directly enters the bloodstream.

old 30+ yrs factory.

sometime back, i asked called PUB coz the inlet pipe to our bldg burst and water running for weeks to drain and no one take any action.

told the bldg maintenance, he said outside our bldg compound, not his responsibility.

so, i called PUB directly.

maybe, somewhere have pipe leakage or rusty pipe and soil mix w water before the tap.

most ppl won't notice if u just get water from tap. i notice it coz i keep a small fish tank and can see the layer of oil and stink.
likely the pipes are dirty

one simple test, fill a glass of water from tap direct, sit over night, see what u get

Our main underground water pipe supply header can be decades old, dirt and rust contamination is definitely expected thus it is better or have filter to remove them. Just tie a white cloth cover the tap discharge, you notice brownish color in no time.
