I really wanted a water filtration system but was reluctant to spend hundreds of dollars on one. Making your own water filtration system at home can save hundreds of dollars and give you the same quality water as the expensive fancy systems because it uses the same filters.
We were buying bottled water for the health and safety of our family but I really disliked the waste and the cost. After searching around on the internet, I found a kit that included a filter, spigot and instructions on how to fashion two food grade buckets into a water filtration system. I was sold! Now we have safe, clean water for our family, pets, and plants for less than $70. The system produces more than 5 gallons of water per day at about than 3 cents per gallon with the initial filter kit purchase. The cost per gallon goes down when you buy replacement filters because you are not buying the entire kit. Flow rate and lifespan of the filter depends on how dirty the water is that you filter. You can add additional filters by drilling more holes to increase the flow rate.
The concept is so simple and assembly is easy.
