Several different filtration systems are available depending on your needs. Low-cost, ceramic, bucket systems, portable roll bags for camping or hiking, and our new versatile Homespun water filter that can be used as a straw, with a drinking bottle, in line with a hydration pack, or in a bucket system. Our pre-drilled ceramic filter bucket systems 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.

Replacement filter part number: BC-0103
Gravity Fed Water Filtration System (SK-1001)
Our Price: $41.75

All the needed materials to construct a basic gravity fed drip system: 2 pre-drilled, food grade buckets with lids, ceramic filter (either regular or viral reduction), spigot, siphon, and sock. (Filter mounting is offset to allow for the addition of one or two more filters if desired.)

Use to make potable water 'off the grid' or to have as an emergency water kit 'just in case'. (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 expensive to ship hence this product does not qualify for free shipping (shipping charge is calculated separately on the checkout page). If you can drill a few holes in plastic you can lower your costs significantly buying just our 'emergency kits' (BC-0102 or BC-0502) and sourcing buckets locally.

NOTE: The buckets are pre-drilled but the kit requires some assembly by the end user. (Assembly instructions are provided)
