I don't filter or boil either.
I just tell my wife I do...

But, I usually do her water....never mine anymore. She thinks she has a "sensitive stomach".
Not sure if that's correct as we've been married 15 years in a couple of weeks now. Anything that was sensitive has pretty much been "de-sensitized" by now....

you all know that guyd and his family only asked about filter before boiling, right? And he's out and back already based on his itinerary at viewtopic.php?t=6053" onclick=";return false;

Personally, To each their own on filtration, boiling, tablets, etc. I really don't want to go to the doctors office because I was flippant about water. So many other ways to get sick.
