I have a Katadyn portable in my knapsack kit.. it works very well. Other than that, I am surrounded
by a couple of million gallons of fresh water that needs really no filtration other than sediment.
The local cottage association tests the water weekly, and contaminants are in the low parts per billion.
A portable system is great if you are on the move, but your home system should be set up
to what your water is like. Worth it to get a complete test done, and then get filters and UV accordingly.

I'm going to speak for most of us here and say that we are pretty much all in awe of your total setup and seclusion. If it weren't for that damn cold weather I'd be up there in a heartbeat. I'll take the hundred degree days over the 30 degree days any day of the week.

Oh, we get 100 degree days here in the summer, Branch... last year we had almost 2 months of it. July and August are
usually pretty hot, and Sept is usually in the 70s. Winter has it's own beauty, though.
