    I use a Brondell filter system, attached to my bar tap. This is the one - https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00...?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I don't have anything to compare it with really, since I've always used it, since I had an espresso machine. Drinking the water straight - doesn't taste as good as bottled spring water, in fact, I'm not sure its even as good as Brita filtered water, but it does work - it doesn't taint the coffee taste, and prevents scale build up. The filters are kind of expensive, but you can bypass the filter when not using as drinking water, so they last a long time.
    A day without coffee is like... just kidding. I have no idea.

    For this situation such filters buying in the house will be a solution but not the best one. You need to see the thing in a more large scale. In underground waters sulphate is present and in almost all cases it’s beyond the level that a person could drink and be safe for their health. Check this website for sulphate removal and their technology to filter such water. They are for a good use. Many building companies and generally speaking authorities that build new living places neglect such questions. Not every one of them, many because they don’t care such details unfortunately. I worked as site manager in London, and know that by fact.

    Excessive salt in water can cause scum to form on coffee. I use a reverse osmosis system now and the change is noticeable. My coffee tastes better as it also removes chlorine and excessive hardness from water. You can definitely start with a water filter such as Brita but in my opinion it won't come anywhere close to an RO system.
