Wow, reverse osmosis water filter's really are expensive arent they? Also I cant seem to find any that last that long unless i have a G to splash. The best value for money i can find is the Military Grade System but 5 days does not feel long enough. Is this a normal price and expiration date or is there anything cheaper that does the same job and lasts a bit longer?

Sorry for the short post peeps, but this is really valuable info for me. Any help is really appreciated.

Thanks

Just be aware before you spend your money it is merely a membrane and Does not block many harmful chemicals that pass through with the water.

I have heard bad things about UV light, which RO uses. I think, and I'm not an expert, but the best way, although time consuming, is filter first. There are plenty of reverse flush filters out there that claim to last longer with great reviews. Then oxygenate. Most of the harmful stuff in water dies with high concentrations of oxygen.

This is the filter I have and it hooks up to a pack: www.rei.com...

Reverse Osmosis in the USA are readily available for $120 for a basic unit to $350 for a high end under-the-counter (kitchen usually) low volume unit with $225 being reasonable for a good 4-filter unit, pressure tank and faucet.

First, you need to decide what you want to filter. In a survival situation units that require water pressure from a tap won't be of much use.

Get yourself a gallon of bleach, a case of good hooch and understand that in a survival situation something else is going to kill you first.

I have a commercial multi-stage filtration system that includes a reverse osmosis stage.

The water is, and always has been beautiful & clean, without any metallic, alkaline or chemical tastes, ever.

The system we have automatically flushes the filters every 24 hours and so it tends to maintain itself, with the water filter support company replacing individual filters every few years & verifying the system every twice yearly.

The caveat is that it IS an expensive system.

Sounds like a spot on water filtration system, though I should have mentioned in my OP that it is for a Survival situation, without a tap flow and has to be easily transportable on foot.
