  1. im pretty sure that last bowl was bottled water, i mean its crystal clear, then when you let it start filling it has the yellowish tinge again. Are you running out of ideas?

  2. I'd be boiling water after it was filtered… especially as it came from such stagnant areas. Much higher likelihood of bacterial contamination.

  3. awwwwww he drank it, hello pathogens and bacteria. . . . . .
    the filter alone does not purify the water to make it drinkable!!! boil it before and after for good measure!

  4. Only coal is enough. Gravel and sand are for big particles. Since your water doesnt have any big particles more coal means less bacteria. Coal is the only thing that filters bacteria in your filter. Pebbles and sand are mechanical filters. Coal is chemical and organic filter. It filters some chemicals and nearly all of bacteria. Next time try making coal only filter you will see what i mean.

  5. Several things that struck me as odd with this.
    1. The order is wrong. Should be gravel, sand, then charcoal. Also some sort of cloth under both sand and charcoal.
    2. Cross contamination. Using the same container to collect dirty water then the filtered water, will contaminate the filtered water.
    3. This a pretty modern method considering it is suspose to be "primitive". This means they have knowledge of microscopic organisms, that they cause disease, and the effects of charcoal on them.
    4. There is a difference between bacteria and pathogens. The final step is always boil your water.

  6. 'Course, that filter only gets ya so far, unless your innards R particularly hearty, it's still best to boil what you filter.

  7. Boil? yes of course. Although there some people who live in jungles or remote areas that can drink like this because of the difference in bacteria cultures in their stomachs. But in most cases. Boil that shit

  8. Your layer order is wrong. Gravel must be on top of the system for filtering larger chunks (eg: leafs and other large particles), than the sand is for filtering smaller particles. After the sand layer the water is mostly clear but can contain bacteria, minerals and other microscopic things. The charcoal layer must be fine as the sand or finer than it so it can filter those microscopic things. After the filteration highly recommended to boile the water to fully kill all kind of bacteria.

  9. Your still posting so im quite amazed you didnt die of dysentery. Drinking from the same bowl as you would definitely cross contaminate your filtered water.

  10. Your videos are very artistic, amazing camera angles and great quality work. Keep it up! Love your videos!

  11. that filter is not good enough for drinking even if it looks clear, hope you didn't got sick. You need to boil it before you drink it!

  12. It can NOT work in this order. In addition, filtration is not AT ALL good enough by this technique. It's ridiculous and dangerous. Counterfeit primitivity …

  13. FYI also, don't use the same bowl you dipped into the river to get water as your clean watch bowl.
    Kind of defeats the purpose of purifying the water.

  14. The charcoal should be rinsed then crushed in a mortar and pestle and put in the last stage of filtration.

    The water still needs to be boiled atleast 5 mins after filtering to make sure bacteria and stuff is killed off.

  15. I lived on a island in the pacific cut off from any big cities or towns.. for a few months with now money, We used charcal to wash off the oil burned stuff in pots which worked better than any thing you would find in a shop…and just walk over to the beach to use sand to scrub it just like sand paper.

  16. It's all about natural & sustenability concept…the haters can't understand that. The details don't count because improvements on this is not a big problem , yo.

  17. does this way kill any bacteria thats left in water? where I live, humans have dumped so much in our waters its just not safe anymore. alot of sulfer, calcium and rust. will that clean it you think?
