That "water filter" is hilarious! You realize that that type of "filtration" will only remove most "sediments" and allow VOCs, pharmacological "wastes" and most water-borne parasites (bacteria & viruses) to pass right through, don't you? Moreover, while subsequent boiling of the filtered water will eliminate most of the biologic ingredients, even that will do little to nothing in making the water "safe" for consumption.
