I recently moved to NYC and am concerned about copepods etc. in the tap water. I can't install a fancy under-sink filter nor do I want to refill a Brita pitcher all the time. Are there any other options? I read online about an EZ Filter but haven't seen anywhere to buy it. I imagine that the insects are relatively large (as opposed to what Brita typically filters) so maybe just some type of fine mesh screen that fits over a spout?

    If they were that large everyone else would be grossed out

    You could rely on bottled water.

    Lettuce is over 96% water (accd to Google), so you could stay hydrated by eating lots of lettuce.
