did you flush the filter under the tap before you inserted it?

Did you run 3 loads of water through the new jug/filter? I love my Britta water.

Console yourself with the fact it cant have tasted as bad as the sour milk you gave him at breakfast that time.

Sassie you should try one of these - probably be cheaper than Brita filters and I'm sure a practical girl like yourself could install it in a jiffy.......

my friend had one of these and they where crap, it took forever to fill a glass of water, and the kit only pirces a tiny hole into water pipe which furs up, and me putting holes in pipes aint the wisest idea you've ever had - lol

That's because you are accustomed to the stuff that comes out of the tap. Clean water is a shock. lol

Well all water has been through millions of humans not 8 sets of kidneys, except most water is filtered by hills, mountains etc before reaching the reservoirs where they are treated for bacteria etc.

When I go for a **** against a tree most of it evaporates into the clouds where it then rains on the hills then seeps into the reservoirs it's bloody magic.

Try putting the tap water in a plastic water bottle and pretend you've bought the water - see if he doesn't notice the difference....
