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 !!!!
