When it comes to survival, nothing is more important than having clean drinking water. This should be your top priority in any SHTF situation. But don’t think you have to drop hundreds of dollars on an expensive water filter in order to achieve this. You can make your own DIY water filter for under $35 with parts from your local hardware store.
The video below from Double Tap Shooting School shows you how to make your own DIY water filtration system.
DIY 5 Gallon Water Filter
So what will you need to make this water filtration system? Here’s a list of supplies:
- Two five gallon buckets
- One five gallon bucket lid
- Ceramic candle filter
- Electric drill with 1/2 inch and 1 1/4 inch drill bits
As you can see in the video, these four supplies can transform two ordinary 5 gallon buckets into a portable, durable water filtration system that will turn even the nastiest Oklahoma water into pure, clean water. But remember, even filtered water is not always safe to drink, so to make sure always add chlorine or bleach even to filtered water.
