Biofilm, a glue-like mixture of bacteria, fungi, amoebas and other microorganisms inside plumbing

Not to freak anyone out, but there seem to be so many celiacs who have difficulty recovering that I wanted to share this story about "biofilm," which can be inside of pipes in older homes. It looks like some people with this issue may need to boil their water, or order bottled drinking water:

That's so gross to think about but so true.  

Years ago, after the water main on our street kept leaking and repairs were not quick in coming, I got a water distiller from this place, H2OLabs....

I really like the water distiller. I'm sure my water isn't contaminated and it tastes MUCH better.  None of that water purification treatment taste is left.  And no lugging heavy plastic bottles about.

Sorry for the endorsement, but the water distiller has made a big difference to me.

The only issue with distilled water is that it also removes all minerals. Throughout Asia, and in our home, they use these, which simply boil the water, keep it hot, and you can dispense it whenever you like. the only issue is the need to refill it regularly (we use a Britta pitcher that filters it beforehand), and you need to clean it thoroughly once in a while to remove the mineral deposits (usually with vinegar & water):
