Daily YouTube BONUS – High Volume of Potable Water From Any Source

SourtherPrepper1 shares with us a DIY invention he created that can provide you with a high volume of potable water from any source provided you have a dedicated power source such as a solar panel. And it’s all contained on a makeshift dolly. Very cool!

    Well done SourtherPrepper1. Looks like a very workable and straightforward solution. I found the Doulton website lacking much specific information on the RIO 2000. At 0.9 micron filtering, it should remove most junk; and found the following on another website: “Pathogenic Bacteria – Chorela, Typhoid, Salmonella, Serratia, E. Coli, Fecal Coliform: >99.99% removal. Cysts – Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia: 100% removal (based on tests by Arizona State University & Sediment – Down to 0.9 µ, 100%; 0.5-0.8 µ with a filter efficiency of >99.99% (based on tests by Spectrum Laboratories, Minneapolis, MN)” …. sound pretty impressive. I did a short search and found http://www.discountfilterstore.com had a decent price for the RIO 2000 with the Big Blue housing of $129 and free shipping. If you can get your hands on one, the Aquajet RV 5503 is an incredible pump. It is one of the newer smart pumps and adjusts its speed and current draw to meet the load – up to 5.3GPM at 85 PSI. Max current draw on 12 vdc is 10A. One other comment (and correct me if I’m wrong – it looks like non potable water hoses used on the downstream side. I drank out of a garden hose when I was a kid and am still here 64 years later, so it may not be a big deal.

    That’s a neat setup. I always enjoy the videos SP1 puts out.
