Charcoal Filtration

Use a pant leg or cone-shaped object and fill it with charcoal and two alternating layers of clean sand and small rocks. Boil water for 5 minutes to be sure all bacteria are dead. Nonetheless, it won't remove any minerals, solids, or metals in the water.


This method boils the water to a point where it evaporates and collects the vapor in another bottle to let it condense. Instead of taking the foreign elements from the water, you remove the water from the dirt and put it in another container.

Purification Tablets

Use Iodine tablets or Chlorine drops to kill bacteria in the water. It may taste funny but it will surely quench your thirst and keep you hydrated!

UV Light

Ultraviolet pens kill any bacteria in the water. Just insert the bulb into the water, agitate for the specified amount of time and your water is safe to drink.


Use portable water filters to clean and purify your water. These filters use a ceramic and carbon-based system and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are even small enough to fit right in your backpack!
