We don’t need to tell you the importance of water, especially when it comes to survival.
Here are the facts: Water comprises most of our body: the brain (75%), the bones (22%), muscles (75%), the blood (92%) and more. It is imperative in keeping us alive.
Here’s the problem though. Jusbecausese we NEED water, doesn’t mean you can drink ANY water. Take survival for example. You cannot drink water straight from a stream or river without checking to see that it’s safe. Just because it looks fresh and clear doesn’t mean it is. This is why you need a water filter to remove bacteria and other contaminants. If you don’t have one handy, you need to make your own.
The ability to make your own water filtration device is an essential survival skill. You can only rely on yourself and your own skills to make it through when living in the wild. You’ve come far enough to get out of a compromising situation alive. You shouldn’t risk your life now by drinking water straight from the source.
This video will tell you how to do just that.
And remember, a DIY filter for water should only be used if you cannot find a better, cleaner water source. Remember, your health and life are top priority. After all, you’re a survivalist.
