It's something we generally don't spend a lot of time
Until it's not available.
Water to quench thirst, shower with, cook with, wash hands
with, clean clothes with, etc.
you are using water straight from the well, or other source that is
unfiltered, you will need to address the potential NEMATODE issue.
As gross as it might sound, it's actually really amazing that
some nematodes that ONLY prefer human hosts!
Roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm, and pinworm infection are the most
common worms in humans.
It's not always possible
to cleanse our water intake, so the following is a need-to-know for all
off-gridders (or campers, hunters, fugitives, etc.)
If you catch youself unwittingly consumed good "bad" water, here's some
tips to remedy the problem.
It is said that the garlic works best if smashed and allowed
to sit for 15 minutes to allow a reactions before ingesting.
Diatomaceous Earth (food-grade), this stuff is amazing
apparently just about everything in diverse areas of our lives.
Swallow some till you feel better. A shovel a day ought to get it.
Pumpkin seeds are reported to paralyze the cling-on nematode type, so
Coconut Oil is said to have a bunch of stuff to aid the
nematodes from the body, put a shovel full in your tea.
Papaya Seeds. It is stated that the seeds from the
papaya contain an enzyme that nematodes don't like. Try it and
get back to me on that one.
Well that's all I have on nematodes.
Presuming that industry has not polluted or poisoned your areas' ground
water supply, contaminated water due to parasites requires water
filtration. Presumably, and preferably, your method for
filtration will be dissimilar to our Nation's Water Supply Treatment
At one time I was instrumental in the conclusion of three water
contracts which included TVA (Tennessee Valley Water Authority owned by
Fortune500 capitalist, Fluor Corp), Cherokee Water and Sewerage
Treatment Plant, and the Adairsville Water Treatment Plant.
Please consider not doing what the water treatment plants are
doing, incredible amounts of toxic chemicals being injected into
"our" public water supply. Before I or my men could
commence work within the plants, it was dictated that we go along with
of all the toxic chemicals that we'd be working around (as if it were a
choice). It was pre-requisite that we all knew
where the chemical charts were in each corridor and building that we'd
be associated with.
No chemicals and poisons to add to your water supply? No
Consider Reverse osmosis as
affordable means to filter your water.
Having a user-serviceable
pre-filter is a good idea to delay the
expense of changing filters from the R.O. unit.
The preferred plumbing here is common garden hose.
Parts for garden-hose plumbing is prevalent and cheap and easily fixed
and not hidden in walls where, if the impossible should happen, such as
a leaking pipe, the
leak can be quickly identified and repaired in minutes (as opposed to
finding out weeks later when your molding and walls are ruined because
of an in-wall "modern" plumbing scheme).
Who cares what it looks like? Get on with your more important
aspirations! Might I consider solving the unpublished and
unprogrammed mystery of http://usdebtclock.org ? To hades with
the modern-plumbing, if our Nation remains on its present course the
plumbing will be the least of our worries!
IT TAKES LOTS AND LOTS OF WATER TO MAKE A GALLON OF TREATED WATER
Most, if not all, R.O. Units require some pressure. Water
pressure is what forces the water to want to go through finer and finer
filters. There are a myriad of types and compositions of filters
A LOT of water is expelled to make that solitary gallon of
What to do?
In an on-grid example of life, the occupant or end-user is oblivious to
the incredible loss is their Reverse Osmosis System. The
units themselves come with
directions that direct the installer to drill a hole in the
under-the-sink plumbing drain. Out of sight, out of mind (just
like some magician tricks I've seen).
This might come of some form of helpful information:
USE THAT WATER!
If you are getting your water from a well, it stands to reason that the
water is filtered by the ground some (which means it's probably safe to
water your lawn with all that wasted water).
To give you an idea of just how much water is wasted making a solitary
gallon of filtered water, I redirected the refuse water to a
The economy 110v washer can be filled almost twice to make the solitary
The photo shown below is the water heater relocated to the
hold area. Below the plate steel which the heater is
resting upon is another tank which is used for the reverse osmosis
water treatment system (partially visible on the right side of the
water heater). I chose this location (3rd move now) for the water
heater for a number of variables. Having the water heater
close to the area in which the hot water is required uses less
water. Typically, when the water heater was located at some
other remote location, the amount of water to run through the hose to
the final destination was wasted water (until the hot water caught
up). Now the hot water is almsot instaneous due to its close
proximity. The hardest part of this setup was the relocation of
the power structure/rail. As for the plastic, it is not necessary
that it be located there and is overkill. However I haven't all
the trust in the world with corporations and the products they produce
anymore, and since it didn't cost much, the plastic is draped over the
water heater to eliminate any standing water.
Even so, "Let thine own cisterns water thee"
