    water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink...

    Another item I keep at hand is a water purifier, it may be portable but it does the job. I am thinking about one of the larger units from teledyne.
    It is getting more important as each day passes on our ground water situation. Ground water is too easy to contaminate.
    Does anyone here happen to keep a unit handy around the house "just in case" ?

    I have a 5 stage RO/DI filter, and store 60 gallons of pure, clean water at all times... for my aquarium :)

    My 'other' hobbie is marine aquaria. I have an auto-topoff system for my aquarium that replaces water as it evaporates, approx. 4 gallons a day. This is fed from a 60 g storage tank, which is plumbed to the RO/DI filter through a float switch. The result is a 60 gallon tank of fresh water that never has sits long enough to become stagnant. I can feed the RO/DI unit from just about any water source, if it was ever needed, including the goldfish pond out back :)

    Wasn't intended as an emergency measure, but it sure works as one! If anyone's interested, www.airwaterice.com sells RO/DI units for multiple uses, at reasonable prices.

    Unfortunatly for me, there's only 30 gallons, minus the space taken up by 10+ years worth of hard water deposits, in my water heater.

    That will change soon!
