Paranoia. We are trying to prepare the boat for cruising and will be filling with rain and jerry canned water from unknown sources. I'll be filtering the jerry canned water via a transfer pump for water down to about 5 microns, but would also like something filtering the water after it's been in the tank.

I don't want to end-up like this guy , but out the other end!
