This video shows how to make and use the home made Berkey type water filtration system. This one is made for less than in parts and you will see that it will turn the nastiest of Oklahoma water in to clean SAFE drinking water in a reasonable amount of time. This system is NOT super fast (yet…give me time) but it will clean 5 gallons of drinking water in about 24 hours (Website says 14 per day) . I believe that I may have figured out how to speed that up to 5 gallons in an hour or so, stop back and see it I make that work. This DOES NOT make water drinkable without boiling or adding chlorine or bleach, however in a pinch it would beat drinking it straight out of the river. This works GREAT and is SOOO much cheaper than the store bought systems that do the same thing.

Candle Style Ceramic Filter
Ceramic drip filter works just as well as the high end filters, only at a fraction of the cost! Made with attention to clean water and purity, these 10″ long filters also fit the Berkey and Royal Filtration System.
This filter removes 99.00% of water-borne bacteria and suspended solids with a 0.5 micron efficiency which exceeds NSF standards. The ceramic filter can be cleaned with a soft brush at least 100 times, and it produces 14 gallons of drinking water per day.
Simply double stack two clean buckets with lids, drill a 1/2″ hole in the bottom of the top bucket and through the top of the bottom buckets lid, and install filter in the bottom of the top bucket. Fill the top bucket with water from a lake, rain, tap, river or stream and in an hour you will have bacteria free water to drink in the bottom bucket. See our item # CAMP-309 for a food grade, standard 5 gallon bucket.
Capable of a flow rate of 5 liters per minute at 43.5 PSI. 99.99% filtration efficiency at 0.5 microns, and a 99.99% effective reduction of suspended solids. Eliminates most bacterium and microbes with 99% efficiency but will not filter out viruses. Non-returnable, buckets and spigot not included.
Replaces Doulton, Berkefeld and other candle style ceramic water filters.
