How to make a SHTF water filtration system

In this video I’ll show you how to make a simple water filtration system. This system costs around . It requires no pumping because it’s a gravity fed system.

The filter I used in this video was a Sawyer mini. It filters up to 100,000 gallons of water at .01 microns. If you wish for more than 100,000 gallons you may look into using the Sawyer Squeeze. It has all the same specifications as the mini, but will filter up to 1 MILLION gallons of water.

These filters will remove bacteria and protozoa (including Giardia and Cryptosporidium) however they don’t remove chemicals, metals or viruses. In North America viruses aren’t very common in the water. If you’re unsure of viruses in your water you can filter then boil your water to be sure. These filters are meant to filter any water from the back country such as water from a stream, river or lake.

and it’s perfect for use during earthquakes, hurricanes, flooding, boil alerts, mission trips
