I recently made a post that mentioned boiling water. I was told by my
local water dept that the water can be boiled in a covered pot, which
should allow most of the disolved solids to accumulate at the bottom of
the pot. You could then siphon the water off the top, and it should be
much lower in disolved solids. I guess if you use a clear pot you
should be able to see the solids at the bottom. I have not tried this.
Theoretically, I guess it should work. I'd recommend checking with your
local water dept to see what the recent tds readings are. If your water
is under 100 tds it's probably okay as it is, although boiling it
couldn't hurt.
