On May 1st a major water main supplying water to parts of the Boston area broke, leaving some 2 million people there without safe and clean water for drinking, cooking, washing, and so forth.
On the exact same day a major series of devastating 1,000-year floods swept through parts of Tennessee, which left many residents there in a comparably precarious water-scarce situation as those in the Boston area. People in both places were forced to rely on bottled water and/or boiled water just to avoid various water-borne diseases and illnesses.
Here at Filters Fast we have a solution to these recent water woes and also for those to come in the future – we recommend that you purchase the Katadyn Ceradyn emergency water filter system explained in depth below in order to provide purified and uncontaminated water for yourself as well as your family, friends, and/or neighbors whenever the next water emergency occurs in your area.
The Katadyn Ceradyn Drip Water Filter System pictured above is a high performance emergency water filter system that can provide about 1 gallon per hour of safe filtered water which will allow you and your family to make it through the next ‘Aquapocalypse‘ or other similar water emergency.
The Katadyn Ceradyn Drip Water Filter System is a free standing gravity water filter with utilizes three very advanced Katadyn ceramic depth filters for maximum, high-level water filtration. The three Katadyn ceramic depth filter cartridges remove numerous contaminants and impurities from tainted water, including:

- …and other disease causing agents down to the very fine 0.2 micron level.
The Ceradyn gravity drip filter system reduces or removes dirt, bacteria, pathogens, micro-organisms, some viruses, and parasites such as cryptosporidium and giardia that cause diseases such as cholera, dysentery, typhoid fever, and other potentially life-threatening illnesses.
