DIY Water Filtration System For Cabin Or Camp

DIY Water Filtration System For Cabin Or Camp



Lonnie shows here how he built (and how you can too) a water filtration system that is great for a small cabin or camp or even to have for emergencies in town. The total cost to build was MUCH cheaper that the professionally manufactured filtration systems but yet it is every bit as effective since it uses the same ceramic filters as they use. It is a very simple project and uses the tools that you may already have.

Shopping List for How to Choose a Water Filter:
Pitcher-style water filter [https://amzn.to/2Ls4Kxc]
Faucet-mounted water filter [https://amzn.to/2NXQxtH]
Under-sink water filter [https://amzn.to/2ZUdDJ5]
Under-sink reverse-osmosis water filter [https://amzn.to/2O1PRDB]
Whole-house water filter [https://amzn.to/2NV4jxf]
Sediment filter [https://amzn.to/34FDkvB]

Steps for How to Choose a Water Filter:
1. The simplest way to filter tap water is with a pitcher-style water filter, which has a granulated carbon filter that improves taste and odor, and removes some chlorine and sediment.
2. Faucet-mounted filters have a switch that diverts tap water through a granulated carbon filter. Turn on the switch for filtered drinking water; flip it off when washing dishes.
3. For greater water filtration convenience and capacity, install an under-sink, dual-filter system that has its own gooseneck faucet.
4. For optimum point-of-use filtration, consider a reverse-osmosis system. Water passes through a series of three filters, resulting in extremely clean, pure drinking water.
5. Whole-house water filters are installed near the water main and are ideal for delivering clean, filtered water to every faucet throughout the entire house.
6. There are a variety of filters available to remove a wide range of impurities.
7. Sediment filters contain a stainless-steel pre-screen filter and back-flush system that automatically cleans the filter.
8. For the highest level of water filtration, first have your tap water tested, then call in a water-treatment specialist to install a whole-house filtration system designed specifically to treat your water.

Unlimited Filtered Drinking Water For Less Than $35 (Doulton/Berkey)

Unlimited Filtered Drinking Water For Less Than $35 (Doulton/Berkey)



In this video I show you how I made a gravity fed water filter for under $35. It’s a “how to” with the supplies needed and the cost of the project. I made this in less than 1/2 hour so it’s quick, easy and cheap. It also may just save your life some day so it’s super important.

You can use this filter with a Doulton or Berkey filter and you can add the fluoride filter to the bottom if that’s a concern.
