Wow, good idea. I think it might end up being moved to the DIY section, but useful nonetheless. I am immediately filled with the desire to rig a larger one of these to the bottom of a rain catching drum for a gravity fed water purifier...

I built something similar using 2" pvc pipe, 2" pvc couple and a Brita filter. It's a good back up to my Katadyn Pocket filter. TP

Would you mind telling me how you built your water filter? I would like to make my own home made water filter.

I like the lifestraw, at $19 its not a bad deal for a filter to 0.2 microns. It will filter 264 gallons (1,000 liters) before become clogged. I like this as its fits into a BOB/GHB pack. I will buy more of these filters(don't have any money in it but like what it does for the price). Every prefilter I have worked up goes over the top of a 5 gallon bucket to have the raw water pour through, then to chemical treatment then a ceramic filter.
