Homemade Water Filter - Tips and Steps

Thinking of putting together a homemade water filter?

Fresh water is one of the most important things a person can have. Fresh drinking water is what keeps our bodies running smoothly.

If you've ever gotten a little dehydrated, you know how a lack of clean drinking water can mess with your system. It can cause fatigue, crankiness and make a person just not feel good, and those are the symptoms of being just a little dehydrated.

Sometimes, however, fresh drinking water isn't readily available, and that's when you need to know how to make a homemade water filter.

There are a couple of ways that a person can make such a water filter, depending on the supplies they have at their disposal. These water filters are easy to make in most cases. Once you've chosen whether or not you will use items that you have at home or are going to order pre-made parts from the internet, the steps are relatively simple.

  • Choose what your homemade water filter will be housed in. You might want to get some ideas by looking online. If you're handy, you might not need to order the parts, because you will know what to get for them, but if you're not so handy, it might be a good idea to order them.

  • Once you have the housing, it's time to choose the filter. Some of the most common water filters are made of tightly packed charcoal that filters water. Other types of homemade water filters include silver sterasyl ceramic, which has been shown to reduce the amount of bacteria in water. Or, you can choose carbon block filters, which get rid of things like bad tastes and odors in water.

  • Once you have chosen one of these filters, it's easy to slip it into the housing of the homemade filter and hook it up to the plumbing lines.

If you're interested in making a smaller water filter, you can use a two liter bottle with a coffee filter and activated charcoal granules. When you pour water through the mixture, it will filter water just as well as your larger, more permanent homemade filters, but these are smaller and more portable.

These examples of how to make homemade water filters are for small drinking water systems, but there is no reason that you can't make a larger, whole home water filter system, if you choose. The housing will be larger, of course, and you'll have to have some plumbing know-how, but it can be done and will save you thousands of dollars in the process.

Think about it: many whole home water filtration systems can cost upwards of $5000. Many people would like to have fresh, clean water in their home, but cannot afford the hefty price tag to go with it. By making your own home water filtration system, you can have fresh, clean water without the very large price tag.

This is the same for your homemade water filter. Whether you choose to make a version that you will mount under your kitchen sink, or just use a two liter bottle for your water filter, you could be saving yourself hundreds of dollars in the long run.
