I think it also depends on how dirt is the water you want to cleaning it up and make it drinkable. However, commonly we can use carbon filter and sand filter for cleaning dirty water. But for making sure whether that water is drinkable which mean healthy for our body, of course we need to have some special peripherals. There's some criteria for clean water and for drinkable water. Commonly industry will following an industry standard for drinkable water which using some bacterias level as indicator. So which one do you want to use, i think it also depends on how is your water current contents. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

Hello yellOwbell me too would go through your stated article, as am environment friendly and also like some efficient things.Even in my native place there are some area where water isn't that much clean to drink, even it tastes awful.For now am adding some electrolyte powder to drink water at my native places.Well even in home we try the alum piece in water to get it cleaned, and also boil it before drinking it.Well me too would like to know more about such an tech improvements.Anyways keep it up with your mylotting and also with your water research.Happy mylotting.

Just put a piece of alum in your water and see the results. All dirt will float or sink or whatever.Just strain it out and you get good potable water.I do not know what that powder contains. Perhaps alum under a sophisticated name!
