Of course, there are many types of water filters that you can buy, but did you know that you can create a simple water filter yourself? It is a very simple process that just about anyone can perform.

First, you will have to cut a length of PVC pipe to about two to two and one half inches. In the end cap of the pipe, drill a small hole; you will probably need to use a power drill to cut a clean cut.

The whole you cut should be the same approximate size of the diameter hose you are going to inset in it. Screw on the end cap of the PVC to the PVC pipe and seal it with silicone sealer, and then insert a vinyl hose into the opening you have made in the end cap and seal that with the sealer as well.

Next, use some material to use as a filter, such as a paper towel or a coffee filter, and fill it with carbon before you insert it into the PVC pipe. When you pour some water into the open side of the pipe, it will go through the filter with the carbon, then out the thinner vinyl tube into a container.

Voila! Quick, easy filtered water you can keep in the refrigerator to drink at any time. As mentioned, this is one of the simplest, cheapest filters there is. You can certainly buy more complicated ones if you prefer. In either case, you will have to be conscientious about changing the filtering material in your filter. You change the filter in your air cooler on a regular basis; this is the same concept.

Clean, pure water is on everyone’s mind today and the best way to make sure that your family is drinking clean water is to purify it yourself. You can eliminate those contaminants before they get into that glass of water.
