Live in Ruskin across the bay. Installed filter also. Water quality has dropped here. Had a nasty smell and taste. Filter solved that.

Think it might have to do with all the construction here and tapping into water line.

But your picture is crazy nasty looking. To think people are drinking that crap.

I'm definitely spending some money on a good system when my house is built. I immediately ordered another filter for my fridge after seeing that picture

While tap water is (generally) safe to drink, it is often filled with dissolved solids and other junk.

Put a drop on glass slide and let it air-dry and you will likely see the residue left behind.

Is the color brown when it dries

I use the refer with a filter. Filter lasts about 6 months. As far as cooking with it. I do because you pretty much boil it when cooking.  The tap water from sink just taste and smells really funny/bad. Especially the order sometimes.

But they are building subdivisions on my road like crazy. 900 unit one going in right now. That's just what they are doing now. I bet there has been 3000 or more homes built in little old Ruskin on 19th, 14th and Shell Point Rd in the last 10 years.

I bet when they tap into water lines they contaminate the water. Because these smells and odors started pretty much when all that construction started 7 years or more ago. I moved here because there was pretty much nothing here. Now it's being turned into another Brandon and Tampa slums.

Because they are moving alot of the project/HUD tenants down here. They're using section 8 assistance to rent houses. I wonder now that there is a housing boom going on what they'll do when property sells. Just thought of that.

I don't even let my dog drink it without filtering it. It's that bad.

Tampa water is just plain nasty. I won't even drink tap water there. I carry a case of bottled water in my truck.

Now that I think about it. I remember seeing sand particles in the water before right out of tap.
