Any recommendations on a system? I can install, but looking for something to take sediment out, kill any bacteria, etc. I know there were posts in the past, but they are somewhat old, just seeing if anyone has had a great experience with a particular unit.

Thanks,
Dave

I use this, at home and at the shop. You'd have to add UV I guess for bacteria, but this does a good job on sediment. Gallows Bay Hardware carries them and keeps different filters on hand.

Thanks, I do have that already. I just wanted to get something that will allow me to safely drink the water. I know they say that you can drink it, but last time I was there, I did seem to get a little stomach thing going on, not sure if it was due to the hurricane water that we in my cistern, but it was pretty clear with a little sediment on the bottom (more than before though). So while doing some repairs again when I come down in 6 weeks, thought I might put a new unit on as well. Thanks again.

We never had any sort of filtration or sanitation on our cistern system up until this year. Now we have a Sanitron UV unit with three stage carbon filters. The Sanitron systems and such can be purchased locally at Tropical Plumbing.
