DIY Salt-Water Survival Bottle – Compact Desalination Kit

In this video I show how to make a simple distillation kit from a water bottle that can be used to make fresh water from ocean water.

Any steel container could work for this project. I almost used a small stainless steel food container, but decided a water bottle was a more practical object to carry.Watch the video from NightHawkInLight for more info:

Desalination is the process of removing salt from saltwater, which might be necessary due to a lack of clean drinking water in your area.This process involves somehow turning the water into steam, then collecting that steam and allowing it to condense back into a liquid.


The easiest way to do this is with an metalic bottle, a tube and a collection container.Simply by boiling the metalic bottle, the steam should run into the container. Eventually, you’ll have some drinkable water.
