Megaton water purifier

From The Vault - Fallout Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The Megaton water purifier is an integral part of Megaton.

Background[edit | edit source]

The purifier is in the water processing plant under the charge of Walter, who has been keeping the the "rust bucket" going for thirty five years.[1][2] Of course, the purifier is only one part of the water system; without intact pipes to carry water, the purifier is useless.[3]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Megaton's purifier appears only in Fallout 3.


  1. The Lone Wanderer: "Can't you fix the pipes?"
    Walter: "I could, but I can't hunt for leaks all damn day. That rust bucket purifier would fall apart without me up around to plug it up. The only break I get is when I shut the thing off for the night, and I can't look for leaks when the water isn't running."
    (Walter's dialogue (Fallout 3))
  2. The Lone Wanderer: "What's the word around town?"
    Walter: "Well, people've been sayin' that the water purifier's about to go. Honestly, I'll tell you what I tell them. I've been keeping that wreck going for thirty-five years and this is the first time I've ever had a problem I couldn't fix."
    (Walter's dialogue (Fallout 3))
  3. The Lone Wanderer: "What's the word around town?"
    Walter: "Sure, you got the purifier working right again, but if it runs out of water to pump then we're still screwed."
    (Walter's dialogue (Fallout 3))
