Water Filtration / Purification


  • Boiling: Bring water to a rolling boil for at least one minute.
  • Distillation: Converting water into a vapor and then back into a liquid via direct or solar heat.
  • Commercial Filter:  A product designed and manufactured specifically for purifying water. These usually contain some type of charcoal or ceramic filter.
  • Chemical:  Using water purifications tablets, chlorine (bleach) and iodine.
  • Solar Disinfection (SODIS): Exposing water filled transparent bottles to the sun for an extended period of time.
  • Improvised Filter:  Using multiple layers and combinations of sand, rocks, pebbles, grass and cloth to create a filter similar to how the ground naturally filters water.
