In my case, it is the issue of the water source. Natural spring that has manure that leaches into the water. My parents, who share the same water source, have a large filtration system that remove many impurities already, including a UV
sterilizer and softener. It wouldn't be too much of an issue to move it up there...we basically share the same yard. Would be able to carry buckets down and wouldn't be buying distilled water from walmart in bulk...The hope would be that the added filtration on their end would increase the life span of my filters and resin.
