1,000,000 gallon water filtration system

I got to thinking awhile back that all the fucking food in the world isn't going to do much good if you don't have enough water to survive the emergency. I mean, a human can go for almost a month without food, but water? Three-four days, tops.
So I got to checking around to see what I can find and came up with this:
http://www.basspro.com/Sawyer-Emergency-Water-Filtration-System/product/10226683/-1796823?cmCat=CROSSSELL_THUMBNAIL

Here's an excerpt from the product description:
The Sawyer® Emergency Water Filtration System filters hundreds of gallons per day with gravity and even more when attached to a faucet. This water filtration system comes with Sawyer's ONE MILLION GALLON GUARANTEE. The Hollow Fiber Membrane filter physically removes particles, 99.9% of bacteria and 99.9% of Protozoa down to 0.1 micron absolute in size, including Giardia, Salmonella and Cryptosporidia. Simply install the filter to nearly any plastic bucket (not included) and you're set up with a large-volume gravity filtration system. A must-have for disaster preparedness. Use the included faucet adaptor to drink straight from the tap during boil alerts, hurricanse or earthquakes.

Now I have a Katadyn water filter for my Git Kit that ran me about 70 bucks but it's only good for 200 gallons. This motherfucker here will keep me in water for I don't know how long.
You folks might want to consider this filter what with all the abnormal weather we've been having, not to mention anything else that might happen if the fucking muslims get a hair up their ass and start some more shit.
The unit price is 55 bucks, so it'll cost you about 70 bucks with shipping and Obamas' cut - a small price for some peace of mind.

I spent 2 hours looking at filtration systems today. This looks cheaper and more efficient than anything I've come across so far. Thanks.

I think this is the one you clued me in on a while back.
I just ordered one.
Thanks for the memory jog, or otherwise I would have fucking FORGOT!

I work with filtration systems- they work fine with water that is fairly good to start with- like rainwater or a spring or bore low in minerals.

Otherwise, they clog up and need constant backwashing and chemical treatments to keep the water flowing.

I lurk, therefore I aren't. But, I looked them up and there is a lot of useful video on their product on their website. They also make water filter bottles that have obvious implications for BOB. Cut and paste to view their stuff:

Well Ken, I just now ordered two of them and will give them both a work out. If they appear acceptable, I'll be getting three more for my kids.

Sorry 'bout that.
