Buying a water filter is by far the easier option to consider when deciding to implement security and safety to the water portion of the prepper plan. In an emergency situation this type of project can be used to provide safe, clean drinking water for you and your family. There are several things preppers and survivalist would like to acquire at the most affordable price possible, and many of them must be purchased due to the fact we cannot realistically hope to build, create, or manufacture everything we could need or want in our survival gear.
One of the easiest prepper projects we can all participate in is building our own water filters. These water filters are made out of ordinary materials that can be found around the house, or purchased for much less than a prefabricated filter from a manufacturing company.
• 5 gallon food grade bucket
• Separate container for catchment
• Strips of cloth wide enough to cover the opening of the bucket
• Raising apparatus
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
