  Emergency Water Kit (BC-0102)

Alternative Views:

Our Price: $25.00

Product Code: BC-0102

No-nonsense water filter kit - simple and effective.
Excellent as low-cost insurance against natural and man made disasters that knock out water infrastructure. It is also great for well water remediation, rain catchment systems, off-grid homesteading, and back country hunting and camping trips.
This kit includes all of the basic components needed to build your own water filter system (diagram shown in the alternate view). It can produce clean water from just about any fresh water source. (You will need to include a couple of clean buckets of your own). It includes a pre-filter sock for treating water with larger particulates in it, a spigot for dispensing the clean water, and a siphon to help speed up the flow rate.
See our Facebook page (link above left) for examples of where and how these are being used in tough situations here at home and around the globe. Replacement filter part number: BC-0103
  • Ceramic filter with activated charcoal. Silver impregnated to inhibit bacterial growth
  • In gravity fed applications the flow rate is 30 to 40 gallons/day when the siphon hose is used (12 to 15 gallons/day if just used in a 'drip' system without the hose). Higher flow rates can be achieved in long siphon or multi-filter applications. Can be stored indefinitely
  • Each filter contains enough activated charcoal to treat 3000 to 4000 gallons of water, the ceramic shell will filter bacteria indefinitely (as long as the shell is intact). Note filters do not work for salt water. Filter element made in China

Homespun Water Filter Kit September 2, 2014
Reviewer: Deb from Velva, ND United States  
Hello. I received my order # 2815 of the "Emergency Water Kit" (BC-0102), my husband put it together, and we are filtering our well water for drinking and cooking. We love the flavor of the water, and the efficiency of such a simplistic system. WOW!! I am so happy to have come across your website, and for the helpful return phone call from you, prior to ordering.

I would like to purchase more filters from you, but am not sure what direction to go. Whether to buy the candle filters for my Berkey, or just another 4 inch dome or 2, to add to the "Emergency Water Kit" we just bought? It works really really well. (-:  So at your convenience, could you give me a call again for helpful advice on that, and the ordering of what we decide on a purchase? Thank you again.

Water filter system! December 18, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from San Antonio, Tx  
Dear Sir/Madam,

   I recently assembled my Homespun Ceramic Water Filter System. I was amazed at how simple it was to put together. I had it
working in 40 minutes. I ran 4 gallons of San Antonio Water System tap water through it to try it out. The taste difference
was amazing! I purchased the system to  ensure our family would have enough potable water in the event of an emergency.
But, everyone loves the water and we are using it full time now. Luckily, I purchased a second filter to keep in case of a disaster.
Thank you for a fantastic product!

Better Than I Expected !!!! November 27, 2011
Reviewer: 1happycountrymom from , East Texas  
We have very bad well water. Lots of iron and sand. We have to truck in our cooking and drinking water. This thing has saved my life. My oldest son put it together in 4 minutes. I kid you not!!! The water is now good. Very clean and clear.
I am small and not very strong so we decided to install the kit into (2) 2-gal. buckets so I could move it around if need be. PERFECT. I could not be happier !!!!
