Save your health, save the environment. Get a Water Filter.
I like the water pitcher filter. So convenient. Sometimes my tap water is so full of chlorine it is disgusting. The filtered water tastes very good and is far, far cheaper than bottled water.
Rather than trying to figure out how many gallons have gone through the filter. I simply change the filter when the water tastes less than good.
You can also get filters that attach to your faucet.
If possible, buy yours from a local store. See which brands of filters they carry the most of and buy that brand that has the most shelf space of filters. That way you can get filters locally when you need them.
For those who are really frugal, here’s an interesting article:

There’s a lot more to say about water and health. But, another time.
