You need a sediment filter before the electric pump and a fine--preferably charcoal--filter after the pump but before the line splits to feed the hot water heater (if installed) and the manifold from which cold water is piped to the various fixtures. We also have a separate Seagull filter under the sink for drinking/cooking water that is fed from a Y-valve that can connect to either the pressuized water system or the foot-pump. (Generally we use the foot pump off-shore as a means of minimizing water use.)


"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
