No more bottled water!
After priming the filters and assembling it I had to tighten the spigot after I saw a small drip forming, otherwise it was painless and easy to figure out. I went with 2 filters instead of all 4, just to see how it would do. It took about an hour to get a good amount of water filtered, it's one drip at a time (or 2 drips in my case with 2 filters). I wasn't expecting it to be fast, I just have to remember to put in the amount I take out and it will be fine. No more bottled water and I'm hoping that using this water to cook with will help the flavor of the food stand out. This is the Royal model, 23 inches tall assembled.
I spent a few hours yesterday helping a friend inventory his gun collection and pack everything u for the new place. We spent 2 hours and only got one and a half safes done. 35 guns later I had to leave but we will continue today. A lot of the rifles have never been shot and a few of the pistols as well. He has some old stuff from WW2 and knows the history of each so the inventory went slower than planned as we talked about them. I wont say I have gun envy, but the collection is very impressive and we haven't even got the .50's out yet. My favorite so far was a prison gun, .22 with a drum that sits on top of the chamber (horizontal), I can't remember the make but it was a weapon for suppression if there ever was one.
A lot to do this morning and tomorrow before I head out to wine country for a few days of relaxing and sea level running.
