Alas, not everyone is knowledgeable even with the basics ofhow to filter water (we’re looking at you, kids)for drinks, let alone the concept ofa homemade water filtration system. It is quite important for anyone to learn how to make a water filterespecially for emergency situations.
To help you out, here’s a guide on how to build a water filter.The following are five of the easiest homemade water filterbuilds:

1. Bio-Filter

Things you will need:
Gravel, sand, activated charcoal / activated carbon, five (5) food-gradefive-gallon buckets, screen, plastic plumbing fittings, hole saw
Bio-filter, as a homemade filter, is composed of three separate layers of gravel, sand, and activated charcoal. It is a streamlined method of filtering impurities in the water starting from the biggest up to the most minuteimpurities in the water.

Here's How To Do It:

1. Turn the water gallon container upside down.
2. Cut a hole at the top of the container. This is where you will pour your materials and water for filtering.
3. The first layer must be gravel.Gravel is basically pebble-like rock that acts as a filter for common debris found in water such as a small sticks, fallen leaves, and even tiny creatures that are either an animal or an insect.
4. The second layer filled with sand. Sand can further filter out smaller particles in the water that the gravel was not able to catch.
5. Lastly, third layer contains the activated charcoal which will remove minute impurities. Harmful pathogens and chemicals lingering in the water can be removed with carbon. As the last of three layers, passing through this point will render the water clean and free from impurities that the process intended to remove.
6. Ultimately, this is a DIY carbon filter.
