Hud - Does the water
flow well through the Seagull? We use a GE charcoal filter from Home Depot and it really slows down the flow.
Our "system" (such as it is) is pretty lame. We put a little chlorine in the tanks
when we fill them (1/4 cup to 40 gallons) and then as mentioned the water
runs through the GE charcoal water filter which takes out the chlorine taste. The filter clogs pretty quickly and we would be better off if we had a sediment filter before the charcoal filter. You can buy these filters at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. in different micron sizes. The smaller the micron size, the slower the water flow. We tried several different ones until we found the smallest micron size with a water flow we could live with.
Don, I sometimes wonder about the biological stew brewing in the filter housing when the water has not been run for a couple weeks. All that uck collected in and on the filter happily growing away for weeks in the Florida
BTW - we also have one of those PUR egg shaped filters on the kitchen faucet and we drink the water from there, but my wife brings bottled water for the cat. So we know what her priorities are.
