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.
Hillbilly Water Filter
The filtering system is rustic to say the least, but it is effective. Basically, it involves using a plastic bottle, which tends to be pretty prevalent in the great outdoors. Yes it is garbage to some, but it could be what saves your life. We all know that any water you stumble upon must be assumed to be dirty and unsafe to drink. Just because you cannot see the dangerous bacteria and other nasty bits, like human and animal waste, it does not mean it isn’t there.
Once you have found your plastic bottle, cut off the bottom. Turn it upside down and add a layer of charcoal. Get this charred wood or charcoal from your last night’s’ campfire. On top of the charcoal, place a layer of sand and then finally, some rocks. If you are practicing during the spring or summer, you can use edible plants like dandelions, and chickweed in place of the rocks and sand. Another tip which you will hear about in the video is to use a bandana or piece of cloth over the rocks as another filtering tool. This will catch some of the bigger things.
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.
