Water Purification

Categories: ,


The KET HC currently has (4) First Water Systems, (3) being solar powered portable systems. We also have a 3000 gallon reservoir and 3 boxes of filters.

First Water purification system produces potable water from virtually any fresh water source.  Utilizing onboard pumps or existing pressure, water is passed through multiple levels of filtration to ensure potability of water.
