Topic: Water


It's something we generally don't spend a lot of time thinking about.
Until it's not available.

Water to quench thirst, shower with, cook with, wash hands with, clean clothes with, etc.


If you are getting your water from a well, it stands to reason that the water is filtered by the ground to some degree.
However water straight from the well will require the need to address the potential NEMATODE issue.
Roundworm, hookworm, tapeworm, and pinworm infection are the most common worms in humans. As gross as it might sound, there are some nematodes that ONLY prefer human hosts!

It's not always possible to cleanse our water intake, so the following is a need-to-know for all off-gridders, campers, hunters, fugitives, etc.

Unwittingly consuming "bad" water? Here's some tips to remedy the problem.


Garlic is helpful. It is said that the garlic works best if smashed and allowed to sit for 15 minutes to allow a reaction before ingesting.

Diatomaceous Earth (food-grade) is amazing for apparently just about everything in diverse areas of our lives. Swallow some till you feel better.

Pumpkin seeds are reported to paralyze the cling-on nematode type.

Coconut Oil is said to have a bunch of stuff to aid the riddance of nematodes from the body.

Papaya Seeds. It is stated that the seeds from the papaya contain an enzyme that nematodes don't like.


Presuming that industry has not polluted or poisoned your ground water supply, filtration is an easy fix. Presumably, and preferably, your method for filtration will be dissimilar to our Nation's Water Supply Treatment plant's methods.
At one time I was instrumental in the conclusion of three water treatment plant contracts which included Cherokee Water and Sewerage Treatment Plant, the Adairsville Water Treatment Plant, and TVA (Tennessee Valley Water Authority owned by Fortune500 capitalist, Fluor Corp),.

Consider not doing what the water treatment plants are doing to filter water. Incredible amounts of toxic chemicals are being injected into "our" public water supply.

No chemicals and poisons to add to your water supply? No worries.

Consider Reverse osmosis as an affordable means to filter your water instead!

Having a user-serviceable pre-filter is a good idea to delay the expense of changing filters within the R.O. unit.


The preferred plumbing here is the common garden hose.
Parts for garden-hose plumbing is prevalent and cheap and easily fixed repaired without the need of a proffessional to fix.






IT TAKES 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 available.


In an on-grid example of life, the occupant or end-user is oblivious to the incredible loss of water that their Reverse Osmosis System slags off. The units themselves come with directions that direct the installer to drill a hole in under-the-sink plumbing to drain off all the refused water.

USE THAT WATER for other purposes!



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 washer.
The economy 110v washer can be filled almost twice to make the solitary gallon!

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 reasons. Having the water heater close to the area in which the hot water is required delivers the hot water quicker and wastes less heated water that otherwise would remain in a stretch of plumbing. 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 required to run the water heater. As for the plastic, it is not necessary that it be located there and is overkill, the plastic is draped over the water heater to eliminate any standing water.

Off-gridders battery maintenance requires distilled water.

Buy-not having the easy ability to gain transportation serves to curtail spontaneous purchases and allows for the creation of something from virtually nothing. Not only does recycling generally diminish the need for cash, but also enables recycling of the crap that's already laying around your house unused.

In the case of the distillery below, the pressure cooker serves three purposes.
1.) 2015-2016 tomato canning season are still being consumed to this 2018 year! There was an incredible year for tomatoes in 2015-2016, and virtually all of the canning was done in haste to keep up with the harvest (so the seeds still remain in the canned tomatoes). The pressure cooker has a steamer insert that allows for the filtering-off of the seeds allowing for the tomato "sauce" to drizzle through.

2.) Another purpose for the canner is of course for canning.

3.) And now it also distills the water for the batteries! One crappy device does it all.
