    My water filter is a British Berkefeld which uses two Stainless steel tanks. It's a very high quality filter unit. The top tank gravity feeds through the filters into the bottom tank. I have a full supply of ceramic filters for the unit.

    I won't use the filter unless the SHTF for sure. It's for a last ditch stand at the home.

    I probably drove people crazy a couple of years ago with this thread I started...

    Maybe you'll find something in there that helps.
    Since that time I've had a tank bulldozed so I'd have sufficient water for a garden & the fruit trees.
    I also got some powdered "bleach" for disinfecting the tank water for drinking.

    How are you going to get water out of your well in the country without electricity? I don't know how easy it would be to install a manual well pump in line or in place of the electric pump.

    Yes. I have an RO at my sink fed by a salt softener.
