Default Re: Inespensive water filter

Looks good Swanny,

We are looking for a low grade filter to take iron out
of our drinking washing water when using the hand pump.

The electric pump (when there is power available) pushes
the flow through a filter which amounts to a tightly wrapped cotton rope. This is enough to provide the best drinking water we have ever experienced anywhere we have ever lived.

But when the power is out, the hand pump output is unfiltered, the water is so red that it stains the five gallon buckets we use to haul it.

The Berkey is overkill for our needs
