    This is only a option if you can’t boil the water. With that said what he is telling you is right. you can drink small amounts so don’t dehydrate. You still take a risk so only do this in severe situation .

    great video really helps


    No way my friend, your system is no where near sufficient or efficient!!
    Firstly your dirt is most probably dirtier than the water. You try this in many rivers in Asia and Africa and you will be hospitalised with a severe enteric parasitic infection. All you need to do is boil that water …and if needs be filter it through a clean sock or hose. Also watch you dont stab yourself

    instead of poking holes in the bottom when your done, why not leave the bottle lid and cut the other end?

    This is a filter… Not a purification system. Unless you want fluid squirting out both ends of your body, boil it after filtering it! or at least treat it chemically .

    Also i think you need activated charcoal i dont think you can just use any charcoal you happen to have.

    i liked the part where he purified the water… oh wait

    Good advise, but one thing, always try to cut down and away keeping fingers and palm from the path of the blade.
    A deep cut in the wilderness could be very serious, also it would disable one hand

    @sendkeys All very good points; thank you for adding to our knowledge. I kid you not; this info really COULD come in handy someday. Because as I say below, even bacteria poop. And we eet their poop. Cheese is delicious, as an example. Have a great day, sendkeys.

    @DancingSpiderman Unless you have some type of bladder infection urine is sterile. Other than the taste the down side of drinking urine is the high salt content. A carbon filter will not filter out salt,virus or bacteria due to this there would be little “survial” reason to use this filter with urine. On the other hand carbon filter has been “reported” to help the taste and color of urine.

    @cameraguy1968 When I sock it in the fridge for an hour before I drink my pee, it tastes cool and refreshing, like a Old Anglais or maybe a Mickeys 40
