|Alternative Filter Method|
This filtration technique only removes the solid particles from water- it does not purify it.
Charcoal is used to eliminate bad odors and foreign materials from the water. The water still needs to be boiled for 10 minutes to purify it or use water purification tablets if available.
Different items can be used for filtering, such as plastic bottles, coffee cans, metal cans, socks, pant legs, shirt sleeves or as shown in the diagrams.
Filtering your water should be done at the minimum if purifying is not an option.
