If you look around you can get the Watts Premier system for around 185. Sometimes Costco and Sams Club has them. Amazon sells it as well. I get my filters from Amazon not unless Watts has a special. Since I am by myself, filters last me longer than six months. I change them when I notice RO water pressure is down.
I have a couple of cases I keep in the pantry in case the power goes down or there is an issue with the well. The water here tastes great right out of the ground, no filter or anything(I do have a filter, but I drink from the game windmills out here all the time and have not had any issues.)

You are fortunate. My garage looks like the water treatment plant for a small town.

It would be nice to be able to drink the water around here without filtration but with Alabama Power poisoning the ground water as well as other ventures around here, and then the city water company with it's highly trained McDonald's workers treating the water, and the corrupt government
in this state/US I do not trust anything they tell me is safe.


I need to win the lottery, move to an isolated area of Arizona which has UPS/Fed X/Walmart/USPS, good water/ and a fence surrounding the property for the dogs, a well insulated house/shop, and a 3kw solar power system, and long reasonably safe roads to ride the bike.
Oh, and the ability to walk out the door and use my firearms legally. LOL

No need to win the lottery, just save and plan well. The closest UPS/Fed X/Walmart/USPS is about an hour away, none deliver out here. You don't HAVE to put up fencing, they can just run till they get tired and come back :-p
I have seen a few people turning shipping containers into homes. I have a neighbor about 30 minutes from here that has a new structure that appears to be stacked shipping containers. I have checked it out through a scope while out and about and it looks like a convert to a two story home. I picked up a some containers for a project a few years back and they were only a couple grand each. So building could be super cheap as well. There is no longer property in this particular area for sale, however the state is full of cheap property. Some places you can get 40 to 60 acres for around 50K. Plus one good thing about having land is no matter what law the future snowflakes pass they will never know what you are doing on your land anyway. If you were a crafty fellow you might even bury some shipping containers and have a nice underground range

We have all of that here in the Texas Hill Country. Shopping is 22-25 miles away, major shopping and airport are 80 miles away in San Antonio. We just reached our immigration limit for anybody from coastal California, Washington, Portland, etc, you people know who you are .

Maybe you are putting your wall on the wrong border, John.

Unless I win the lottery, I'm not going anywhere. LOL

If I win the lottery and move, I can let someone else do everything for me. LOL

When I;m not on my bike, I am LAZY!
