Filtering water

My healing therapist advised me to filter the water. Some of my friends criticized her by saying that these people have "special ideas". Nonetheless, I went ahead and bought a filter.

Berlin Water System

On a recent visit to Berlin , I was struck by the number of above-ground large blue pipes. These are set alongside
buildings and even bridge over main roads. Are these part of the former Eastern Sector public water system?

The above-ground pipes have to do with a groundwater issue in Berlin. When excavating and building new structures, the groundwater has to be continually pumped out of the excavation site. These pipes are used to do that, and most of them lead back to the River Spree.
