Another post in the water sub series in the main off the grid series of posts.
Made a trip to the hardware store and got two things. Thing #1 was a zero water filter. It comes with a water tester that will tell you how much stuff is in your tap water. I was surprised by how much.
The filter does get it down to zero, according to the tester.
I don't think I want to use this on real dirty water. The instructions say that even tap water with a lot of stuff in it will clog the filter. These filters ain't cheap, I suspect.
Thing #2 was the equipment needed to set up a distiller apparatus that will go on the stove top. Now this one has been written up a couple times already. The thing that makes this different is that I actually decided to do something about it. I am attempting to run that experiment and get some distilled water out of this thing. It will need some work in order to set it up.
Another thing I am doing is collecting rainwater. It is a rainy day out here, and I have actually collected plenty of water. Funny how that is. All these years, one gets water from someone else. Now here I am getting it for myself. What a concept!
