Hillbilly Water Filter
When you are in survival mode, you may be forced to do things you wouldn’t normally do. For example, if you are in desperate need of clean drinking water and you do not have a filtering system with you, you may need to use this creative “hillbilly” method to clean water you have managed to find. Sometimes you have to do whatever is necessary and that includes drinking water that has been filtered through what most would call garbage.
After you have built your filter, pour water over the top. The first couple of passes will be black as the charcoal cleans itself. Charcoal is used in filtering systems because of its porous nature. It absorbs all the nasty stuff and clean water is produced.
Although the Hillbilly Water Filter may be a crude filter, it does work and will provide you with life-sustaining water in a survival situation.
