    Is there any device for this? Hot plates don't seem to go that low. My portable battery can only do 300W continuous. I realize there are other solutions, but there are situations like running out of fuel, not safe to go out, etc, so I'm wondering how would you heat water with only 300 watts...

    Montana Has Lost Its Water Rights - The Organic Prepper Superficially, the federal government is upholding the rights of the Indian Tribes to claim all surface and subsurface waters of the western one-third of the state of Montana. In reality, the federal government is taking a 170-year-old...

    Does anyone know of a hand pump that can function at 500'? I need to install an emergency water system and would prefer a manual pump over a gravity fed tank, but I can't find a pump that will work at that depth. If not, any advice on a water storage tank and setup that would go on a hillside...

    A good family water filter is one of the last preps I have held off on. Yes, I know. I do have 2 of the LifeStraw Family units, and several of the singles. There are a many other options, and the more I research, the more I feel overwhelmed. I am happy to spend the money, but do not want to...

    Let's say you follow ans river or creek upstream to the source and the source is a spring pushing only a little bit of safe clean pure drinking water out. If you want the water to rush out more why can't you just break the spring open so more water comes out? If that isn't how it works than how...

    The scientists first show that the TiO2 nanowires by themselves can efficiently purify water in the presence of sunlight. But interweaving the nanowires with carbon nanotubes forms a composite material that adds an extra layer of decontamination by pasteurizing the water – killing off human...

    This guy uses clay pots to filter water. Is this a legit water filter? I know clay has been used but this seems weird. Also is there a substitute for the bung he uses? I’ve also heard old timers put a silver coin in them to keep bacteria from growing in the pots. Anyway, I thought this was...

    Hello, So I have some Silver nitrate applicators (silver 75%, potassium 25%). Can I use these sticks to make colloidal silver water, or does it absolutely have to be 99.99% silver? Please, don't tell me I shouldn't do it, or tell me about the side-effects, or post any biased opinions. I've...

    I want to filter water. Been interested in the Berkey filter with black filters plus fluoride removing elements. The cost of the guitars units is shocking. I'm seeing larger ones costing 700 Decided to diy my own units. There are videos on YouTube DIY BERKEY. Basically involving two stainless...

    I like watching the Project Farm, real world, side-by-side comparisons of various tools and products. Today's video features a number of name brand water filtration systems from very cheap to very expensive. I was surprised at some of the results. I'll definitely keep my eye on the Zero Water...

    So, I got a water well put in on my property. Before I did this, though, I got my neighbors testing report and it looked okay. However, there is a fracked oil/gas well about 600 ft away from my house (much closer to my house than his) Now that my well just got completed, and while the water...

    Hey guys, I searched the site and found some info on PFAS from 11 months ago so I’m just starting a new thread. PFAS contamination is new to me and I’m just learning about it. It seems horrific and I want to know more. Does anyone else have new information? I’m also looking for water...

    I finally scored a 275 gallon IBC tote thanks to a neighbor. Paid $75. It is made by Mauser and from a guide online, I believe it is a 2" g bsp size fitting? I can't find anywhere that sells a hose adapter that aligns with this description. Everywhere either lists "fine" or "coarse" threads...

    Picked up a case while in MN. Looks to be charcoal filtered tap water aka 'bottled drinking water.' 'Purified bottled drinking water' is usually very clean. Or Hyvee could just be somewhat clean untreated tap water. Spring water has minerals in it. No minerals in the Hyvee spring water, just...
