The portawell wasn't available for a while so I was excited to see it was in stock. I'm relieved to have it in my storage to have on hand for safe drinking water.
This PortaWell was bought for emergency water purification, so I only used it a couple of times. However, I thought it would work well for purifying the well water at my mother's Florida home (pictured), so we wouldn't have to buy jugs of water or use the PUR faucet filter as much. I hooked up the PortaWell with the standard ceramic and carbon filters that came with it, but it did not make the well water drinkable, though, it did remove a lot of the smell. The water still had a fish odor to it, which is unsuitable for drinking straight from. The PUR faucet filter pictured in the photo works well to remove all odor and makes the water drinkable. I was disappointed the PortaWell didn't filter the water well enough. Perhaps they can recommend a better filter combination to do the job. Otherwise, the PortaWell will just be in stand-by for emergencies or perhaps camping trips. I also modified an old 12V AC/DC adapter I had from some appliance to plug into the PortaWell (also in the picture), so I didn't have to buy the power adapter. Also, the manual for the PortaWell could have been better. The details in the diagrams were so small, I could barely make things out. Descriptions and how to use the included (third) debris filter needed better explanation in the manual as well. If the PortaWell filtered the well water better I would give the product five stars.
Hard for me to judge because I haven't used it yet9 phd
We live on a lake in the PNW and I bought my husband a Portawell for Christmas. The Portawell is a good way to have a clean water source during an emergency. Two day after the Portawell arrived, we were struck with unprecedented flooding (Whatcom Strong 2021). I called and spoke with Landon at Portawell and he was very supportive in helping me get our Portawell going. I truly believe every HOA, fire department and community should have at least one Portawell. Self sufficiency is key in early disaster relief. Great company, great product.

I have not had a chance to use it yet but it looks like it is of quality. Nice that it came in a useful bucket. If society does not collapse, it will be handy camping (collecting water, putting out campfire, draining my kayak, hosing down the dog when he rolls in something yucky etc).
Apparently im the first uk customer to purchase the portawell, what an honour. Straight out the box, the well is a joy to behold and a thing of engineering beauty. Gave it a quick test run on questionable water and it performed flawlessly. As compact as you would want it to be for a family sized water filter with such a good capacity. All neatly fits into its own storage drum which acts as the collection container. Great coms from portawell from start to finish. No its not cheap, but you pay for qaulity and longevity, can definitely vouch for the former and tbe latter i feel wholly confident in. Great job Portawell, A1, inovative product. Best buy for peace of mind in survival, grid down situation were a source of clean water is essential.!

We have not got to use the product yet as the micro filter was back ordered. The construction is good however.
I love my Portawell great product for a great price
I have a home Reverse Osmosis filtration setup, a few small emergency filters, and a well known gravity filter, but I still did not have a mobile filtration solution that can produce a decent volume of clean water. The PortaWell is a great setup to have in my Sprinter conversion van for filtration while traveling or buggin' out. After talking with the design engineer, Robert, it sounds like this pump can push through another filter stage or two; a great idea! I'm looking to get another 2-stages/housings to have a mobile 4-stage water filtration (and an added vortex device at the end for water restructuring). Maybe PortaWell will offer a filter housing expansion option in the future? I'd say, in this globally orchestrated collapse (Great Reset/New World Order), if the faucets stop running we best have a way to obtain safe, clean filtered water. I feel that PortaWell fits the bill nicely. A simple solution for a basic survival need!

Just what I was looking for, for an emergency water source
I was skeptical for two reasons. The first is that too many rip offs are out there; and, second because often good ideas have so many replacement parts that are not standard (i.e., filters). I was very surprised to learn that the filters are standard. Second my purpose is to use it when I'm out prospecting so battery use is a must. If I need to keep the battery charged, the solar option is perfect as I already have controllers and portable solar chargers. The product is engineered well, is a high quality product, it's durable and they thought of everything from transporting it in a bucket, to easy maintenance and operation. I could not be more satisfied with the direct and honest approach. Having it lightens my load in how much water I need to carry and that will take up space. I appreciate how this comes together and how easy it is to use. The company did it right and that is very refreshing.
After much looking I found this product that I believe will do the job of producing safe water to drink for many years to come.
Put it in my cabin thanks
I am a survival expert. This is the only reasonable portable, and affordable option for water purification that makes sense. The design is brilliant, it's portable and built to accommodate any emergency. It can be charged with home power and solar, making it the most versatile water purification unit available. I will be recommending this to everyone I know.
Got product in a crushed bucket. Sent you email about the elbow that was broken and I need a new one and hope I can get the old threads out so I can put a new one in it. I work 24-7 so not enough time to deal with it! Hello?
