Water is the essence of life. We've talked about filters before, but this is totally different. Watch the video, this guy does AMAZING videos. He quit his job with NASA to do 12 youtube videos a year.

Ya, Mark Rober is on our family watch list. He does do some amazing videos. Snow ball machine gun, super soaker pressure washer, plunger dart gun, squirrel obstacle course, etc. Also the inventor of the glitter bomb for those of you that didn't know.

I would just rather use water with less particulants and a bit of iodine or chlorine but his three parts were what I expected.

Interesting that the video says they are made for a few cents per packet and then sold for a loss to developing nations but they sell them on Amazon for 2 BUCKS per packet (+shipping)

I agree, but there was one time my water supply was a mud puddle and my regular water filter got totaled after only a few gallons.

Right now my parents are at the cabin and we have a boil water notice because of the plankton. Because I have additional filtration equipment installed for the kitchen cold water tap they do not have to boil the water.

Speaking of water does anybody know of a reasonably priced desalination system for boats. The only one I found was $3500 for 17 GPH. I would only need a few gallons per day.

About $1300 but you have to pump it. Trying to find something in between that has an inline electric pump that can go to a small side faucet by the sink.

Not going to happen

Desalination takes way more energy than simply filtering water. Even the small powered units output at a trickle. The hand pump is like a drip

You have to pump this one too but only $130? 6 Liters per hour.

This is about the cheapest electric pump.

Spoiler: show
$3,000

I don't trust Bill gates.

The packets are good, no energy, but use chlorine.

Katadyn and others do not use chemicals but silver impregnated ceramic filters and preferable, if you can pump.

Depends on your circumstances.
