This is video tutorial to make very effective & cheap 4 stage water purification system to purify municipal water (tap water). You can also add pre- filter as 5th stage, this will increase life of other filters. Pre- filter can be easily clean.
You can find all the material at local spare part shop. Or you can purchase it online using links at the end.
I recommend to purchase the material from local store because prices are little high online.
