    with a little work and materials anyone can have a steady flow of clean drinkable water
    with this sytem, itll clean all of it and make it fit to drink
    it just wont do it fast
    the spirulina can be used for food for you and your livestock or as fertilizer and as it purifies the water it makes fresh clean oxygen too

    I made a filter in high school Biology.  Swamp water into a coffee can with a hole in the bottom.  Fine sand bottom with courser sand above, then small pebbles to larger rocks at the top.  Then I added one drop of tincture of iodine to a glass, stirred a minute then drank it.

    We use screen pre-filters for my catchment tank.  It goes by DC pump with a switch, through a very good filter, if pure water is needed.  Otherwise the water is used for all the gardens.  Gravity to waterers, and hand watered.  I learned not to use plastic tubes for drip irrigation from their twisting tendency.  Not enough room for the spirulina method.

    Apparently beast felt too censored and left.  I was gone because of a forced computer change because of an antivirus virus.  Lost all the contacts and favorites.  Now I am back.  The old vet with all solar and Earthship in CO at 8,878′.
