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.
Bill Monroe: Drop a clean tampon into your prefilter, pul the string to get it out when
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
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

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
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
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: 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.
