Portable Homemade Water Filter




What do you think about this video?

Kenny Salazar: Any substitute for charcoal? ?

Bill Monroe: Drop a clean tampon into your prefilter, pul the string to get it out when dirty !

Jason The Mudge: I apologize if somebody already said it but I think it's pretty important. Over time bleach (Sodium Hypochlorite) light and temperature changes degrade when stored as a liquid. That's why it isn't sold in clear containers. Pool shock is almost 3 times more potent. But, purchasing dry Sodium Hypochlorite is probably worth looking into. Percentages change with products and manufacturers so always be careful. This stuff can kill you faster than it can save your life.

Cheech1968: Thanks for that added tip. I realize bleach isn't the perfect option...but it beats dying from intestinal parasites and bacterial infection. It's good to know of option to make the water better tasting after purifying with bleach.

bibleprophecy1st: I worked at a chlorine plant and chlorine and iodine are harmful to the body according to the MSDS sheets. There is good bacteria that thrives in highly oxygenated water. That is why moving and bubbling water is always safer to drink than still stagnant water. Bad bacteria is always found in stagnant water. AEROBIC 07 STABILIZED OXYGEN kills the bad bacteria without harming good bacteria. (NATO uses it) DO THE RESEARCH AND DON'T BELIEVE WEBSITES LIKE QUACKWATCH. He works for big Pharma.

Cheech1968: Thank you.

Quinn Eaker: Bleach is very unhealthy for human bodies~ Use food grade hydrogen peroxide instead. This is VERY healthy for your body*

Cheech1968: @Backpackerdad3: The filter is designed to remove the larger debris and sediment...so that the bleach you add after is more effective at killing any pathogens. You can remove chlorine taste simply by adding air to the water (this can be done by pouring the water from one clean cup to the other). Thanks for watching.

Daniel Boon: Hey great video man! I built this with two 90 degree adapters at the top so to allow for me to pour into it while not having to pour over the receiving container, works great!

corbonzo1: your not supose to drink bleach!!!!

corbonzo1: oh ok thanks for the info!

MegaKnightime: When making your filtration system keep in mind that the carbon filtration should be used to remove the chlorine from your bleached treated water. Resin filtration removes hardness and minerals from your water, yet minerals are good for you we want to eliminate lime deposits which can cause stones in the bladder. Do basic filtration before treating with Chlorine, than pass water though charcoal carbon filtration to eliminate chlorine and gases which are byproducts of your treated water.

electricfemale: Thank you, very cool.

bibleprophecy1st: I don't own a camera or I would. Be best I can do is give detailed directions if someone wanted it by emailing me at bennysmail46@yahoo.com

13ClownKru: very well done

GunSmokeAR15: thanks man good vid.

Cheech1968: I understand that there are many out there with the "bleach is poison" approach and they are right. But we are talking ppm here people, not a straight up shot of bleach. It has been used for years as a substitute for boiling (which fire is not always practical). If you don't agree with this approach, don't use it and $200 filters aren't always an option. Do your own research and make up your minds for yourself...this is MY approach (and the approach of many other people).

darknightwatcher: very well spoken and loved the knowledge you dropped on me.

Darrell Batton: why not just use a Berkey Sport Bottle? It's about $20, filters 99.9% of everything we worry about in bad water, and is good for over 27 gallons of water in the worst conditions, 110 gallons at optimal. Refill cartridges are available too. Just sayin' I'd prefer a one-stop proven solution for water, particularly when the cost is about the same as a home-made option with questionable results. I have one for each member of the family in our BoBs, as well as spares strategically located. db

Cheech1968: Just remember...you STILL have to purify the water by boiling or some chemical treatment. This merely takes out the debris and the charcoal helps with improving the taste. Be safe and thanks for watching.

Cheech1968: Hey...if I had other options to purify water I would surely use them. But in all the research I've done, I have not come across one article talking about how hydrogen peroxide kills giardia or crypto. So I'll stick with bleach (in SMALL drop doses per gallon of water) or Iodine tincure (2%...also in SMALL drop doses per gallon of water). There is chlorine (bleach) in our drinking water to disinfect it...it's not perfect, but it beats peeing out of your butt from tainted water.

TheMongo1357: Absolutely use "UN-SCENTED" Chlorine bleach! Then to neutralize the chlorine odor AND taste from your water, use ASCORBIC ACID (Vitamin C)! An eighth (1/8) of 1 tablet will do this in approximately 10 minutes time of sitting, after adding to the water and rigorous agitation! Your water will be purified and taste great! Hope this helps?

M.Night207: Will you show how to make this filter please?

Rachel-Hannah Tucker: Thank you, rlmarin1968

Cheech1968: Awesome...me too. I have to re-clarify that it is NOT a purifier because I have had other people mix up the terms "filter" and "purifier". I'm really glad you like it. If you ever get a chance, look up a 35mm film case filter made and designed by Ranger Rick. It is pretty much a very basic filter...but I have stacked one on top of the other and put charcoal in the bottom one to make a small version of this filter. I'll try and make a video of that soon and post out here.

Chris Harbert: Add the bleach to your water before you run it through the activated carbon and the carbon will remove the bleach. Carbon absorbs over 4,000 chemical contaminants.

lostraver: Silver silver was used for thousands of years to purify n keep liquids fresh it is a natural antibody that is amazingly good for you to

Anisa Novianti: 222333333

SURVIVEit45: Check out my filter i have used the same filter all The time never got sick and it can clean muddy water in one pass

Backpackerdad3: Why not bleach the water first then run it through the filter to get rid of the taste?

KatJaguar1122: @rlmarin1968 I believe he might be talking about Lugol's iodine. Also, there are different types of pvc, some are okay to drink out of, some are not. I cannot remember which ones right now. Plumber told me this.

fastacker2: American diet does not contain enough Iodine. Even with iodized salt. Listen to the white rabbit. Iodine is a nutrient. Chlorine is a poison at any dosage.

TheMongo1357: My pleasure! I agree, I am using bleach as well but using the vitamin C to neutralize the bleach and enjoying my water, instead of dreading it? Lol Be safe out there ~

Cheech1968: Thanks for the suggestion. Good idea! I'll have to look into that.

holyprophacy: never ever use bleach..big no no. last resort only

WolfeBear: a drop or two of iodine to water will kill off any organisms in there, or H2O2 (Peroxide) a drop or so will also cleanse the water, and be healthy for you to drink for any possible infections. Remember! Tiny amounts for gallon(s) of water!

Cheech1968: @dotalessons: Perhaps you could provide a link which gives more information about this food grade iodine you are talking about. Most suvival experts (which I am not one) say to use 2% tincture of Iodine. If you look at that bottle, it clearly states that it is a poison...which is why health org's say that if it is used for disinfection of water, use it for no longer than 3 weeks. Thanks for watching

TheCWR2010: Interesting. Like the compactness of it, how long does it take to filter a bottle of water? Do you filter it, then add your drops in the same container? I would filter then boil, save the chems for when I can't boil. As with everything on the trail you should plan for the next time you need it, then by the time you need to drink it, if you took the right steps it should be safe.

Jorge Jr: all you need is a cloth i just seen lady on distilling water only through american flag and it did collected fluoride from that other piece of the flag she had used so i got a cheap filtration for 10 bucks and i added a cloth inside and will use a second one catching the water and so i really thought distilling is only ganna consentrate it these people that bought or made them self of so its interresting how these particle stay in the boiler but in that case just boiling it is harmful ... hummm

bibleprophecy1st: I use a bandana to filter out large material then this funnel made with 1 micron biodiesel filters as a prefilter for parasites. biodiesel filter funnel on youtube; "Homemade ultralight one micron backpacking water filter" As a gravity feed filter I use 1 1/2" PVC 8" long with about 3 inches of fine sand at the inlet side and 5 inches of charcoal at the outlet with small brass screens at each end with tubing fittings at the inlet and outlets like the platypus gravity filter.

Cheech1968: Great suggestion. I've thought about making the top bigger for ease of pouring water into it, holding more volumne, etc, etc. I haven't done it yet, but still plan on getting around to it. Thanks for watching.

lalaboards: THe green stuff is called Scotch brite

Cheech1968: Do you drink tap water? Bleach (chlorine) is used to disinfect city water supplies and swimming pools. You don't drink a glass of bleach...of course not. When diluted in water for the purpose of killing pathogens, you airate the water to rid it of bleach content to make it much safter to drink than straight out of the river/lake. This is for short term use only. Boiling is best, but fire is not always an option.

Cheech1968: Thanks.

Cheech1968: Sounds cool. Maybe you can post up a video of your set-up for us to see and use? Thanks for watching and commenting.

zodiakranch: If there is any heavy metal contamination boiling will make it more concentrated so boiling is not always best. It all depends on the circumstances and water source.

userunavailable3095: Thanks for giving so generously of your time to make and post these videos. I just got done making three of these for my family, along with pouches to store them in, and for extra charcoal and filters.

knives fan: buy a lifestraw 24$ with shiping purify 264 galons weight 2 oz

Cheech1968: There is a man named Colhane here on Youtube who shows how he made his version. I simply used thicker PVC for mine. But that is a good video to check out if you want to learn how to make it. Thanks for watching.

bigjimmyrocker: good job
