Welcome to all the new followers to my blog.
Back in April of 2012 we created our own gravity fed water filtration system off of instructions posted by Mike Yukon over at the Living Prepared blog.
Mike even provided the resources and list of materials needed to create your own gravity fed water filtration system. We placed our order with the resources to create two separate water filtration systems…one for current use, and another for emergency backup.
Every 3 to 6 months we take apart this gravity fed water filtration system to clean the holding device and each ceramic filter. Most people don’t realize you need to clean your filtration system regularly. Once you’ve taken your filtration system apart, you’ll notice a film all over the holding container and the ceramic filters. With warm water, take a dish cloth and wash down the holding container and ceramic filters until this film is no longer evident. Put the filtration system back together, and fill the top container with water to be processed through the ceramic filters.
We have placed cleaning our water filtration system on a routine cleaning schedule. Have you cleaned your water filtration system lately?
