I recently bought a SpectraPure 50 gpd unit. It seemed to fall a bit short of
50 gpd the first time I filled my 55 gallon drum, but it seems to be fine
since then. Mine has a pressure gauge and it normally reads around 35 psi.
I've been told that the warmer the water temp, the slower the output? Do I
have that backwards?
