Introduction: Recycled Simple Water Filter
I like survival and here is the simplest water filter that might help you out of a tight spot. Skipping the intro, this is going to show you how to make a completely Recycled Simple Water Filter.
You're only going to need a:
1. One Liter Water Bottle
2. A knife
3. A source of rocks
4. A source of charcoal
Step 1: Cutting the Bottle
All you're going to do is cut the back of the bottle off. This will allow an opening and the start to building a filter.
Step 2: The Cap
You need to make holes in the cap, not too big or the insides of the filter will fall through. you can make these holes by any means necessary. With a knife or any other sort of sharp object. I personally used a drill for convince. Make sure you screw the cap back on tight when fished making the holes.
Step 3: Charcoal
Charcoal is found usually after a fire ends. It is a logs black remains. You need to find or make some, and crush it.
Step 4: Resources
You're going to need small rocks the size of a finger nail and make another pile of rocks, larger than the previous rocks.
Step 5: Construction
You're going to pack in the charcoal, then place in the smallest stones and work your way up in the stone size. Once you complete this its done and your water filter is ready.
WARNING: THE WATER WILL COME OUT BLACK AT FIRST, WAIT UNTIL IT BECOMES CLEAR. THEN IT IS OKAY TO DRINK.
