Add an inch of activated charcoal as the second layer on top of the cotton layer.
Over the charcoal, add about two inches of gravel or small stones as the third layer.
Add about three to four inches of clean sand on top of the gravel.
Add gravel to the bottle as the final layer. Leave about a half inch of space from the top of the upside down bottle.

How To Make a Water Filter In The Wild

How To Make a Water Filter In The Wild



Disclaimer. This water filter will not make the water SAFE. It will only render it clear and make it more palatable. you must boil it afterwards or use another form of proper disinfection. SODIS or Solar Disinfection would work.

In this video I go through the processes of constructing a primitive filter utilizing natural recourses such as charcoal from a fire, moss, and sand. I use a soda bottle as the filter container to show you the individual layers and to see the water seep through the layers.

Review After 5 Years Pelican PC600 Whole House Water Filter Carbon Series

Pelican PC600 Whole House Water Filter Carbon Series

Pelican PC600 First Review

View the Pelican PC600 here

This filter has been working without problem except for a minor issue talked about in the video. Even if you filter your water for inside AND outside use with a 2 person household, it would be hard to approach the 600,000 gallon limit. You don’t need much more than this to have clean water. If you have 4 people in a home, I recommend bypassing your plumbing so that water is only filtered for inside use.

Do not buy into soft water filtration unless you have very very hard water and avoid using RO water for drinking. Those units waste 10 time more water than they produce and demineralized water is the opposite of healthy anyway.

In most cases, chlorinated water poses no human health risks that so many people try to elicit. But for a piece of mind and to possibly make your life a little easier, simple whole home carbon filtration is the way to go.
