A water filter plays an essential role in survival when you bug out or are caught in the wilderness. There is nothing more important than water. It’s one of the priorities when it comes to survival.
Make a DIY Survival Water Filter
Water comprises most of our body: the brain (75%), the bones (22%), muscles (75%), the blood (92%) and more. We could go on and on about the benefits of water. But when you are out in the wild, you cannot drink it straight from a stream or river. Just because it looks fresh and clear doesn’t mean it is.
You need a water filter to remove bacteria and other contaminants. Otherwise you compromise your health and chance of survival.
The ability to make your own water filtration device is an essential survival skill. You can only rely on yourself and your own skills to make it through when living in the wild.
It’s not enough to rely on your eyes to determine if water is safe to drink.
You’ve come far enough to get out of a compromising situation alive. You shouldn’t risk your life now by drinking water straight from the source.
