Excellent method for heating your water off the grid. This method is not only very efficient as it uses what would otherwise be waste heat being directed out through the stack, but it also works in much the same way as a hot water on demand system or a solar water heating system. This concept can even be directly incorporated into your current solar water heating system or as a separate stand-alone in the kitchen or workshop. Keep your mind open and remember to improvise!

This is by far the most technically advanced innovation I’ve found for a five gallon bucket so far. Sam Redfield developed this design to provide a source of electricity that can be built cheap and hooked up to any source of flowing water – including irrigation systems, creeks and streams, or even sewage systems.

Build this Atlas Ram Pump. It can pump water from a flowing source of water to a point ABOVE that source with no power requirement other than the force of gravity.

How to make your own Berkey filter container. Now that we have an official Berkey unit, and I see how simple it really is, we will be likely to take on this project.

If it comes out clean it is being filtered properly, if it's still red, then there's a problem.
