The water here is pretty good but i need an emergency filter that gets the most bang for the buck.

Also I have a big roof with rain gutters all around. I was planning on dropping the water into plastic barrels, mostly for watering plants. Could a filter treat this water good enough to drink in an emergency? I have a composite roof that has been treated with some sort of midew chemical. The roof is 8 years old however.

You may also want to consider portable options. a slow sand filter is good for the homestead, but you may have to ditch and move.

Portable options..... I like MSR waterworks and micropur tabs for purification.

If I had the choice of drinking my roof water or dieing of thirst I think I would drink the roof water. I has figuring I could use it for irrigation in non emergency times.
