This thread has just scared the hell out of me. I have
lived the last 11 years in Maine on a lot which has
no public water. So we have an artesian well. I have
never had the water tested. I certainly will have it
tested now. If it doesn't test safe, I will buy the same
non-electric distiller you have. BTW, why did you
buy a distiller two years ago?
