I use 2 elevated 55 gallon drums, I fill them & let the sun heat the cold well water. So it don't shock the plants getting hit with 40 degree water.

You can see some of the hoses in the garden pics.
One hose to the greenhouse & is the fill line via some valves, other hoses to a hose system I string through the garden to about 5 locations on 1/2" hoses & valves to water without having to carry buckets or drag a hose around & fight to not hit plants.

Anybody with clorine in their water should have clorine filters for YOU & the garden.

Good idea. So far my plants have survived being watered right from the tap, but then my plants don't look as amazing as your vegies do.

Don't even get me started on public water and the crap they put into it. Even after spending a weekend without water due to a broken well pump I'll still opt for life on a well any day.
