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.
