Everything in this auction was bought for emergency use and has never been used. California went through a power crisis as you may all know and the fears of Y2K had scared many folks. My mother purchased this top of the line water purification system hoping that her fears that government water treatment facilities wouldn't fail but wanted to play it on the safe side just in case she was wrong. As we all know Y2K never happened and there was never any real energy shortage in California. Just the Corrupt Energy Giant Enron! So in moving on with our lives my mother has asked me to sell this water purification equipment for her in hopes that someone will be able to put these nice items to real usage. Maybe a serious backwoods hiker / camper or maybe a hunter / fisherman or the countless other applications. I suppose there are other areas that might suffer disasters more frequently and someone may like to have these items for there own emergency kit. Any way you look at it, this equipment is top quality and a deal to be had at our loss. Below is an itemized list of what we paid for this equipment along with above pictures of price tags still on  the items.
