    The very common complaint about Zerowater is that their cheapo plastic spigots eventually fail and flood the kitchen fridge or floor. Some smart guy solved the problem with THIS $12 Solution.

    More research into my Zerowater filter. It's really just a two-stage filter with some plastic screens. Activated Charcoal and that stinky gooey orange stuff is polluted Ion-Exchange Resin.



    It does start quickly stinking above 6ppm as it catastrophically fails. This is why they warn us to regularly measure it with their provided "free" tester.

    any of U zero-water fockers ever buy a cheap digital pH tester, & measure before/aft result? I wrote of this question further in another water filter thread.

    I'd have to find again at amzn; but some clever guy was selling a "berkee water kit"; IIRC used two 5-gallon buckets, stacked, & modified where top bucket contains berkee elements, thru which water must pass & settle in lower bucket which has a spigot attached near the bottom.

    sold plans + parts; IIRC twas around $25-30

    proper post filtered water container should be glass or stainless steel tho, not BPA-leeching plastic

    McCanney sells the best water filters. They take out stuff the competition does not even test for.

    I think one of the survival supply places was selling the "Bucket Berkey" when there was a shortage of Berkey stainless steel units. The buckets were a screw-together type, which I thought was pretty brilliant. It could also handle 4 filters. That would be a nice kit to take on the road because no chance of spillage with the top and bottom screwed together and a tight lid on the top.

    EDIT: found it - the guy is using special food-grade buckets with screw-on lids.
