  1. Right, if bad taste is an issue, activated carbon would be very helpful.
  2. lots of truth there.
  3. FWIW, IMO, in this situation which is occasional temporary rusty sediment problem, all that is needed is a basic sediment/particulate matter filter. Not a Pelican LWS-PC600, but if you can get the water dept .to pay for it good luck.
  4. Steve, I know the difference, very well as I was the director of an Mass. Environmental Testing Laboratory. Manganese is the one of the problems in Wareham Town Water. That's why the State has mandated a new treatment plant to remove it.
  5. what the CDC says about chicken. Americans eat more chicken every year than any other meat. Chicken can be a nutritious choice, but raw chicken is often contaminated with Campylobacter( bacteria and sometimes with Salmonella( and Clostridium perfringens( bacteria. If you eat undercooked chicken or other foods or beverages contaminated by raw chicken or its juices, you can get a foodborne illness, which is also called food poisoning. That’s why it’s important to take special care when handling and preparing chicken. You Can Take Steps to Prevent Food Poisoning If chicken is on your menu, follow these tips when shopping, cooking, and eating out to help prevent food poisoning: CDC estimates that every year about a million people get sick from eating poultry that’s contaminated with harmful germs. That’s why it’s important for you to take steps to protect your health and the health of your loved ones when it comes to chicken. Place chicken in a disposable bag before putting in your shopping cart or refrigerator to prevent raw juices from getting onto other foods. Wash hands( with warm soapy water for 20 seconds before and after handling chicken. Do not wash raw chicken. During washing, chicken juices can spread in the kitchen and contaminate other foods, utensils, and countertops. Use a separate cutting board for raw chicken. Never place cooked food or fresh produce on a plate, cutting board, or other surface that previously held raw chicken. Wash cutting boards, utensils, dishes, and countertops with hot soapy water after preparing chicken and before you prepare the next item. Use a food thermometer to make sure chicken is cooked to a safe internal temperature of 165°F. If cooking frozen raw chicken, which is found in some microwavable meals, handle it as you would fresh raw chicken and follow cooking directions carefully. If you think the chicken you are served at a restaurant or anywhere else is not fully cooked, send it back for more cooking. Refrigerate or freeze leftover chicken within 2 hours (or within 1 hour if the temperature outside is higher than 90°F).
  6. I have this issue just about annually, as ccb said, it almost always due to hydrant flushing or a water main break. Where I live the brown sediments are from iron, manganese and biofilms. There is not a whole lot you can do about it, you can be extra vigilant when they are flushing mains and check your water in a clear or white container before washing clothes. It usually takes about 24hours or so for the mains to "settle down". I have a Superstor indirect fired water heater, which is very difficult to back-flush. I am very careful not to get rusty sediment laden water into it. You could install a whole house sediment type cartridge filter.
  7. agree and the 3- 3/8 ounce # 7 also still works pretty good too.
