a way to turn saltwater into drinking water.

Step 1: Materials

plastic wrap
rubber bands
small jar

Step 2: Finish the Construction

next put the plastic wrap on the top a little loose and put the rubber band on the edges. then put the rock in the middle above the glass.

Step 3: Wait

wait as long as you want, set it directly in sunlight ,just observe what happens after about a half hour, the the water starts to collect on the top. when you want, open it and taste the water.
this isn't water filtering... it's distillation :(
Very cool! I have tried this before, and it is very effective during the summer months. You can also drink your urine this way. And you can put a plastic bag over the leaves of a tree and when water evaporates from the leaves (transpiration) you can get a bit of clean water. Please change the title, because this is a still not a filter.
Double post.
sorry bout that........
me crazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzy!
Not just saltwater either. <em>Other</em> sources of water can be re-used with this.<br/>
Good, but as they said, it is NOT A FILTER!
Xrovevansx is right, it is a still and if you make the one that survivor man made using a hole instead of a bowl, you can procure up to two pints of water a day If you want to make it a little easier, add a straw from some surgical tubing so you don't have to disassemble it every time you want to get water from it. This will make it a lot easier and less frustrating, especially if you are in a real survival situation. I have actually have used this method and it is very effective.
this is not a filter, it is a still.
This is really useful, I first saw it on Survivor Man. Luckily I haven't had to use it.
