How to Purify 12 Gallons Of Water A Day WITHOUT Filters or Electricity

Purify Water

If you are like me, and you worry about the life span of your water filters in a collapse situation, and how you’ll keep purifying drinking water after your supply of filters runs out, then this video is for you.

I’m sharing this video with you because up until recently I wasn’t sure if this was a legit method for purifying water, and I didn’t want to fall for any scams out there.

Several times over the last year Scott (the dude in this video) has turned me away from products sold to Preppers that aren’t all the manufacturers claim them to be… and tipped me off to cheaper products that can get the same job done as the one I was about to buy.

He’s tipped me off to stoves that really don’t crank out the heat that they claim they can, or different electricity generating gimmicks that simply don’t work.

If I’m in question, I simply ask Scott.  And he’s never steered me wrong.

So if you’re looking for a way to purify up to 12 gallons of water a day… or maybe with some tweaking even producing 16 gallons a day… and you live in an area that has a lot of biomass on the ground then this might be a perfect option for you.

Its not as simple as something like a Berkey water filter, which you can learn to make yourself here by the way, but then again it won’t have filters that will eventually crap out on you either.

There are already huge percentages of the Earth’s population in third world countries that have to boil ever drop of water they drink.  If it ever comes to that, this would be a MUCH more efficient way of doing so.  More efficient in biomass that needs to be burned by using the Rocket Stove, and more efficient at purifying by using the distiller.

Something to think about.

If you’d like to give this water purifier a try, here’s where you can buy them:

    This product has gotten horrible reviews by many who have purchased it. Main complaints were that it was poorly made with cheap materials and the condensing plates don’t appear to be stainless steal. Have you purchased this product yourself?

      After getting this comment I wrote to Scott himself (the guy in the video) and here was his response to your question…

      I have read some of the reviews and most are ridiculous. I have run this on a variety of stoves with good results. The extreme heat I have subjected it to would have caused a lot of corrosion if it wasn’t stainless. I wish someone in the US would make these things but that is another story. The distiller works extremeley well compared to others I have run. I appreciate you posting the link.

      I haven’t bought this yet to test myself but thought you’d like to hear what Scott responded with.

      Hope this helps.

    You might want to get in touch with Paul Weaton and try that distiller on that rocket stove that beat out the blacksmith forge. Very nice device. Thanks for your work in this field.

      I did think it would be fun to be a little competitive and see if I could beat its production with a different stove 😉

    I would prefer to filter/purify. I know, I know …. it’s not the same as distilling, but it doesn’t take 6 gazillion BTUs either. Take a look at the Sawyer Point Zero Two filter (I got mine for about $100 from Sawyer claims 170 GPD output and a ridiculous length of service. Anyway …. 0.02 microns is pretty effective at scooping up bacteria, protozoa and some viruses. I would definitely use a prefilter to catch tree limbs, hubcaps and stray bugs. The whole thing can be set up with a couple food grade 5 gallon buckets in about 10 minutes.
