We wisely recommend getting a five gallon pail with a gamma lid to carry everything in. It’s a great storage device for this 7.5” bucket filtration kit. We prefer two 2 gallon buckets because they easily fit inside a 5 gallon pail. Also a five gallon bucket provides extra space for drinking cups, hand towels, hand soap, dish soap and other water related items. What’s more, as the need arises you can also use the 5 gallon bucket to retrieve, carry and store unfiltered water.
Nano Gravity, UtraCeram, Nasa certified water filters are notably the best filters on the market. The flow rate for a Nano Gravity filter is remarkable. Just like any other trustworthy filter Nano Gravity filter can plug up after a while. Nonetheless, occasional cleaning can extend filter life.
It’s important to note even the best filters plug up faster when foreign material and sediment is present. If anyone ever says to you one brand of filters plug up faster than the other, be careful how you interpret it. What it really means is the filter is doing a better job filtering the sediment and it’s not a red flag for a crappy filter.
To lengthen the life of any filter, such as RapidPure, Waterpure, Nano Gravity Water Filter or whatever, we recommend doing this after retrieving water from a dirty source; such as a lake, river, spring etc. Fill a bucket or a container with water then let it sit for as long as it takes to settle the sediment, afterwards take the clear water off the top and filter it.
If you are particularly worried about filter life take a piece of fine cloth and wrap it carefully around the filter element. Secure it with a rubber band or a light string. A filter sock or even a cotton cloth will filter out larger particles so the filtering element doesn’t do all the work.
It is a great idea to buy an extra filter for a backup.

Assembling a Drip Bucket System using a Nano Gravity Water Filter Kit, Rapid Pure Filter, WaterPure Ultra Light Purifying Water Filter
Assembling a filter in a bucket system begins by drilling a 1/2″ hole in the bottom center of the top bucket and another 1/2″ hole through the lid of the bottom bucket. The holes should be directly in line with one another.
This next step may vary depending upon the space that must be filled between the lid of the bottom bucket and the bottom surface of the top bucket. Some buckets have a raised rim at the underneath bottom center of each bucket that will leave a gap for the water to leak through. It may be necessary to use both flat washers between the lid and the bottom of the top bucket to fill the gap so water does not leak into the clean water through the lid of the bottom bucket.
The filter comes with two 1/2″ flat washers. Assuming your bucket isn’t like the one described above leave just one flat washer on the stem of the filter and lower the filter assembly carefully down into the top bucket. As you lower the filter gently align the shaft so it fits through the base of the bucket. If the hole is too tight you can take a pocket knife and lightly scrape the hole to ease the assembly of the shaft.
Take the second 1/2″ flat washer and install it on to the shaft after you assemble the lid of the bottom bucket to the bottom of the top bucket. In other words the second washer goes on just before the wing nut and it is meant to provide a seal if water accidently settles into the lid of the bottom bucket.
Once the lid, the filter and wing nut are fitted together, gently tighten the wing nut to prevent contamination or leakage. Be cautious and do not over tighten the nut so much it stresses and cracks the filter or its stem.
Now let’s do a leak test as follows…take a cup of water and pour a thin layer of water into the top bucket, but be careful not to add so much it begins to run through the filter element. Also take a cup and pour a little water into the bottom lid where it attaches to the top bucket. Let the water sit in both places for 20 to 30 minutes and then carefully raise the bucket up and inspect to make sure no water has leaked around the wing nut where the shaft goes through the lid. If there is a leak, it needs to be fixed to prevent unfiltered water from entering the bottom bucket where the clean water is stored. The fix may be as simple as switching the flat washers to a different position as described above.
It will also be necessary to install a 3/4″ spigot to the bottom bucket. The hole should be drilled deep into the sidewall of the bucket, but not so far down it makes it impossible to screw the nut onto the shaft of the spigot. When installed the nut fits on the inside wall near the floor of the bucket. If the hole is drilled too low in the side of the bucket the nut will interfere with the floor of the bucket making it impossible to install the spigot. If the holes too high you won’t be able to get as much water out of the bucket. It’s best to use the nut to determine the positioning so you’ll know exactly where to put the spigot hole.
For anyone who’s not good with details, we provide the above complete drip water system that is already to use in case of emergency. Filter life can be extended if you take a piece of dish cloth and wrap it around the filter element. Securing the cloth with a rubber band is particularly good where extreme turbid water and contaminants are noticeable such as fish scales, fecal matter and etc. When you put water in the top bucket it slowly passes through the filtering element and trickles down through the filter shaft on into the bottom bucket. If the water flow becomes too slow you may have to rinse the filter or clean the screening cloth.
For a small to midsize family it is recommended you have at least two or more filters on hand. How many you need depends on the condition of your water supply and how frequently you use it.
