I should get paid for researching on the internet… I don’t know how I do it, but I almost always seem to find what I am looking for, sometimes it happens like this time, while looking for something else, I run across something that I have been previously trying to find. Today, while looking up another person who writes on off grid subjects, one of her articles turned out to be exactly what I have been looking for, a way to make your own terracotta pot for a water filter, this has an actual recipe for the clay, you don’t need a kiln (a MAJOR plus!) and I believe most people would be able to do this. Here is the article, it can be found here https://www.off-grid.net/2008/06/19/cheap-water-filter-for-everyone/
check it out!
I hope this is something that can be easily done, I plan on taking this “recipe” to my potter friend, hopefully we will be able to start working on a water filter soon. :)
