Royal Berkey Water Filter System RB4X2 with 2 Berkey Black Filters and 2 Fluoride Filters Bundled with One Stainless Steel Live Healthy Water Bottle:
This video shows how to make and use the home made Berkey type water filtration system. This one is made for less than $35 in parts and you will see that it will turn the nastiest of Oklahoma water in to clean SAFE drinking water in a reasonable amount of time. This system is NOT super fast (yet…give me time) but it will clean 5 gallons of drinking water in about 24 hours (Website says 14 per day) . I believe that I may have figured out how to speed that up to 5 gallons in an hour or so, stop back and see it I make that work. This works GREAT and is SOOO much cheaper than the store bought systems that do the same thing.

DIY Water Purifier w/non-electric “Human Powered” Pump! simple “activated carbon” water filter w/siphon pump. made using PVC pipe, (w/a couple of brass fittings), some scrap window screen – and the carbon. great for purifying tap water, rain water, stream/river water (or any “moving” water source). works good with lake/pond water too (just boil it before or after filtering). activated carbon filtering removes over 200 chemical contaminants (herbicides/pesticides, pharmaceuticals… you name t). also removes all bad odors/tastes/smells and removes most dirt debris and sediment. pump is $5.59 from harbor freight. carbon from walmart $6.00 and PVC (@brass fittings) from home depot. great for camping/hiking/off-grid/emergency/shtf or everyday use. couple of notes: if collection container is lower than source water, then you only have to pump it a few times (to get it going) and it will run theoretically forever (siphoning action). ppm water reading included in video. the pump is multi-use. it comes with an air hose too, so it can be used for air mattresses, beach balls etc…
Quick video on how to make a water filter out of a 2 L bottle. This style of water filter should last through about 20 gallons of water in contrast to the store bought variety which lasts for 40 gallons. Cheap, easy, effective in a pinch.

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.
