We are back at our new house, and had the first taste of our water (unfiltered).  We got the bacteria test results back today, which said the bleaching of the well was successful, and no coliform bacteria exist any more (or at least, less than 1 part per million).  The "MetalMaster" will arrive tomorrow, but since our water is almost clear at the moment, the filter is primarily for taste.  The existing copper pipes do have a significant amount of iron in them, so probably we will have more iron some days, or some seasons, and then the MetalMaster will be helpful in removing all of it (it is rated at twice the amount of iron I have seen in the water previously).

Heather can detect a bit of a metallic taste, but either I can't tell, or perhaps because I just ate a bunch of chips, and so can't taste anything strange.

Our new washing machine (I told Heather she could get a new washing machine when we moved - replacing an existing, working machine didn't seem to make sense in the old house) will also be delivered tomorrow, and internet on Saturday.

you know, during each of my pregnancies, i'd have metalic tastes in my mouth a lot of the time. but if you haven't noticed that yet, heather, it probably is water-related and not pregnancy-related. :)
