Water purification devices are readily available from reputable vendors. If you prefer to purchase bottled water, make sure that it comes from a reliable source and that it comes with a certificate stating that it is filtered. If you want to spend less on your water purifier, you may choose to filter the water yourself. You can find numerous books and online resources on how to accomplish this.
