Hard times gear review... the PUR water pitcher
The best 'survival' gear is the stuff you use every single day. If you heat with a wood stove on a regular basis, then using it when the power is gone is not an issue. The folding knife you slide in your pocket daily will always beat that 12" monster tactical survival bowie sword with the first aid kit in the handle and auxiliary cup holder.
This item is like that..... something I use every single day, and have come to trust.
PUR 18 Cup Dispenser with One Pitcher Filter DS-1800Z
This pitcher lives in my fridge, and gets emptied and filled just about every day. It deals nicely with the salt from the water softener, and the nitrates in our farm-land water table. I replace the filter unit every few months, although so far that's been more preventive than a 'need'.
Using this thing, my purchases of bottled water are now 20% of what they used to be. That makes it a real money saver. Add to that the notion that I can take creak water, pour it in the top, and have good tasting potable water a short while later.... that works for me.
This gadget has my stamp of approval.... I use it, I like it, and I recommend it.
