DIY Survival Pocket Waterfilter

diy water filter

A Lone Wolverine shows us how to make our own pocket water filter. Like her YouTube channel for more

so we had a lot of rain and flooding for
two weeks now everything is wet in the
forest and on the fields and what comes
with flooding is dirty water so in a
survival situation you want to find some
way where you can purify your water and
that’s why I want to build a water
filter today with natural materials okay
so first of all we’re gonna need some
tube some kind of tube and for the tube
I cut off some bamboo of my garden
because I think that bamboo is just the
best material for a little pocket filter
okay so I’ve just found my first layer
of the filter which is the bottom layer
and our girls here is a really nice and
clean moss and I gonna take some of the
moss and put it into the water filter
okay now I stuffed a mouse in really
good okay so next we are going to need
some charcoal and last time when I made
a fire I collected some of the charcoal
that was laying around and charcoal is
really the most important ingredient of
a pocket filter okay now I take some of
the very fine charcoal into the filter
here like so okay guys so now I filled
up the filter up to here yep with
charcoal now we’re gonna take some moss
again and fill it up to here about that
and then our water filter is finished so
if you want to you could feel the filter
no up with sand but here in the forest
there’s no sense so I cannot take moss
again and the most important filter
component is charcoal so if you don’t
find any materials at least take
charcoal and you will be fine
suits want some beef jerky mmm really
good
so I’ve just finished this water filter
now it’s time to find some bottle so for
the pocket Peter we need some kind of
empty container on the top where the
dirty water is in and for this I’m going
to take this plastic bottle here and now
I’m going to take my Swiss Army knife
and cut the plastic bottle in half okay
now we have to figure out a way to
connect these two pieces here and I
thought that I just cut the bamboo down
a little bit so that the bamboo fits
inside the bottle of course it would be
convenient the other way around but the
diameter of the bamboo is just a little
bit too small for that
okay the bottle fits the filter very
snack now but I think we have to seal
this slot off here with some pine pitch
because you don’t want some dirty water
running down at the sides of the filter
into your other container with the clean
water so now we are going to search for
some plant pitch here on this stem I
just found a little bit of thyme pitch
is you’re going to take to put right on
this pocket filter here now we put the
bottle on top of the filter and the pine
pitch seals off the bottom here so now
all the bottom will go inside here
nothing outside okay now we’re going to
punch a little hole in the filter
okay the water filter is working pretty
good and the water down here is
crystal-clear but of course to be safe
it’s always good if you boil this water
but if you don’t have the opportunity or
the container to boil your water making
a water filter like this is better than
nothing so thanks for watching and stay
tuned till next time
