Filtering tap water isn't good for you, to all those who have mentioned it. Those filtering systems you can buy take out all the minerals and salts etc. from the tap water which are good for you and leave you with very unhealthy water.A lack of minerals in no way makes water unhealthy, less nutritious maybe, but not unhealthy.
Honestly, I don't think the minerals in tap water are really much of a factor in choosing whether or not to filter the water. The simple fact of the matter is you lose minerals and salts from drinking such filtered water which you wouldn't from the tap water. If you were to drink nothing but that water you wouldn't be doing your body any favours, and if you also obsess over removing salts from your food etc. as so many people are then it really will become unhealthy. Most people seem to not understand that small quantities of such things are very healthy for the body and required.
