Several different filtration systems are available depending on your needs. Low-cost, stationary, drip systems either gravity fed or pressurized, mobile systems for camping or hiking, and small bottles for international travelling. Our pre-drilled bucket systems (either drip or pressurized); are drilled off center to allow for more system configuration flexibility for the end user. It provides the exact same performance and exterior look but allows for up to three filters to be fit into the bucket instead of just a single one in the center.
NOTICE: Due to legal ambiguity in certain statutes in Iowa we are suspending shipments there pending further notice. We regret the inconvenience this may cause.

Gravity Fed Water Filtration System (SK-1001)
Our Price: $41.75
Out of Stock

All the needed materials to construct a basic gravity fed drip system: 2 buckets with lids, ceramic filter (either regular or viral reduction), spigot, siphon, and sock. Use to make potable water 'off the grid' or to have as an emergency water kit 'just in case'. (As an FYI: 30,000 of these systems were shipped into Haiti after the earthquake there, and 10,000 were shipped to Japan after the tsunami. In both instances bottled water was hard to find and expensive.)
The buckets are bulky and a bit expensive to ship (shipping charge is calculated separately on the checkout page). If you want to lower your costs consider buying just our 'emergency kit' and sourcing buckets locally.
NOTE: The buckets are pre-drilled but the kit requires some assembly by the end user. The bucket systems do not qualify for free shipping.
