Primitive Survival Skills: Primitive Technology Salt Water Filter - Full
Primitive Technology Salt Water Filter is a full video tutorial on how to survive on an island where there is no fresh water. First we built a primitive pot, we perforated a small hole on the pot. Then we took a bamboo tube and made a chiller. Cooling water so that water vapor can condense into droplets to obtain maximum water. We take the sea water to boil. Fresh water then evaporates and produces fresh water. Salt will precipitate at the bottom of the pot. By the original technology we had to salvage sea water to obtain fresh water and salt. We will continue to work on the next video on primitive technology and survival skills. Subscribe to the channel to keep track of the latest videos Channel: https://goo.gl/2j7yCS

How Seawater Desalination Works
CASE STUDY: Desalination is a complicated process, the Seven Seas Corp.* approached DaVinci Studio to develop an animation that simplified the explanation of the process. Taking a cue from Seven Seas we started with squiggly style animation to give the technical looking components a non-technical look. Bottom line is to go from engineering-speak to the layman's level. Desalination (also called "desalinization" and "desalting") is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater or brackish water. Desalting technologies can be used for many applications. The most prevalent use is to produce potable water from saline water for domestic or municipal purposes. Desalination 101 IDA | International Desalination Association [http://www.idadesal.org] *Seven Seas Water Corporation, a major player in the water treatment industry, with an expanded presence throughout the Bahamas, Curacao, Mexico, Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos Islands, U.S.A. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

How to convert seawater into drinking water [Class 6, Chapter 14, Water, NCERT]
Clearly, I do not want you to get stuck on a deserted island. Also, thankfully, I was not stuck on a deserted island myself; thus finding a plastic container wasn't too difficult. This video was a contrived attempt to urge middle school students to think about evaporation and condensation. Please do not use this method to distill water if you are actually stuck on an island. The water you produce will not be drinkable. And if you are watching this on YouTube while stranded on an island, then please check Whatsapp to see if you can connect with a friend who can come rescue you. Finally, here are some reliable sources that offer advice on how to collect drinking water in case you do get stranded. 1) National Geographic suggests that if you get stranded on an island, then your best chance of getting drinking water is to "collect rainwater." It also suggests that you can turn seawater into drinking water by "digging a hole in the ground, putting a container at the bottom and surrounding it with wet leaves... then, put a piece of plastic, such as tarp, on top of the hole and weigh it down with rocks so water can collect and fall into the container." http://www.nationalgeographic.com.au/nature/how-to-survive-on-a-deserted-island.aspx 2) USGS recommends using a "solar-still" to convert seawater to drinking water by leveraging evaporation and condensation while using a life raft. https://water.usgs.gov/edu/drinkseawater.html

What Happens When You Drink SeaWater?
Video by https://www.kramgallery.com/ Over 2/3rds of the earth is covered in water, but only 2% of that water is pure. As clean drinking water becomes more scarce, you maybe wondering…What happens if I drink seawater? Let’s first examine how our bodies absorb water. You may remember the process of Osmosis where water moves from a less concentrated solution to a more concentrated solution, through a semi permeable membrane. The cell’s membrane allows water to pass through, but not the particles dissolved in water, like salt. Normally the saltiness of water inside our cells is the same as the saltiness outside our cells. When you drink water, a concentration difference takes place. Water from the outside your cell moves inside to maintain balance. This is called an isotonic state. When you drink too much seawater, the saltiness outside your cells will increase rapidly and the cells force water molecules out in order to restore balance. So even if you are already dehydrated, drinking sea water will cause your cells to release more water and you will end up peeing out more liquid than you take in. Conversely if you chug a massive amount of pure water, the exact opposite will happen. The saltiness outside your cells will decrease rapidly and water will be forced into your cells. This can cause the cells to swell and burst, which in extreme cases leads to seizures, coma and sometimes death! This would only occur if you were to chug 6 liters or more in an instant though. So what can you do if you are stranded on a deserted island with absolutely NO fresh water around? The simplest way to extract fresh clean water from the ocean is through distillation, which separates the salt from the water. In order to distill water you must heat the sea water so it evaporates, then trap the evaporated water vapor until it cools and condenses back into liquid water. Kinda like the moisture on your bathroom mirror after a hot shower. This condensed water will be free of all salt and 100% safe to drink.

New Tech Makes Seawater Safe To Drink
Access to clean drinking water is a huge problem in the world, and leads to millions of deaths a year. Scientists have tried to work on the problem, finding ways to make water otherwise unsafe to drink potable. There's a the membrane technique-- but it's very expensive and not a viable option in water-stressed areas. There's a new idea from the University of Texas at Austin in the form of a small chip that neutralizes chloride ions at the microscale, desalinating the water. It's promising...but is the tech there yet? Kim Horcher and science educator Cara Santa Maria discuss the new development.

Survival Camping: #1 Turn Seawater into Fresh Water with Trash
The purpose of this adventure was to have fun while practicing survival skills. I carried an ultralight backpack, camped between the sand dunes and used trash on the beach to distill seawater. Two cups of drinking water per hour! Amazingly simple. Awesome fun. During the past several years I’ve been intersted in making portable stills for water distillation: simple approaches that could be used when hiking, especially in emergencies. The stills I’ve made have continuously improved, with the help for may people from the bushcraft and survival YouTube community. As my friend Darby (RiverBendSurvival) says: “The only way to master it, is to get in the dirt and do it.” Distillation removes biological, salt and heavy metal contamination from drinking water. Distallation is often the preferred method of water treatment in deveoping countries where water is heavily contaminated. Distillation is used for drinking water on ships. Ultralight Backpack: My fully loaded pack for this trip without food and water was 9.3 lb (4.2 kg): - Ozark Trail 28 L Atka Backpack 0.75 lb (0.34 kg) - Nylon Ground Cloth 5x7 ft, sight Al stakes, 0.70 lb (0.32 kg) - Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow 0.017 lb ( 0.08 kg) - Sterno Stove and Stanley 20 oz stainless steel pot (backup, not used), 1.37 lb (0.62kg) - Stainless Steel Funnel and coupling parts for still (could be replaced w/ aluminum foil)1.3 lb (0.59 kg) - Stainless Steel Water bottle (empty) 0.33 lb (0.15 kg) - Sol Escape Bivvy 0.53 lb (0.24 kg) - Ozark Trail Sun Wall Tarp 6x10 ft and Cordage 1.10 lb (0.50 kg) - Medical Kit, Compass, Map, Light, 0.29 lb (0.13 kg) - Aluminum Trowel, Paper, Bug Repellent, Lighter, 0.24 lb (0.11 kg) - Small Tripod 1.50 lb (0.68kg) - HeatKeep Down Jacket, Wool Cap and Scarf 1.15 lb (0.52 kg) ++++++++ - Food for 1-1/2 days: 1 lb ( 0.45 kg) - Pocket items: knife, flashlight, aluminum foil, tape, GoPro camera, Iphone 6+, keys, wallet, lighter, matches, battery charger for phone and camera - I carried no fresh water, but rather depended on seawater distillation Stay tuned for continuous improvement.

Why Don't We Just Use Desalination Of Ocean Water To Solve Our Water Shortage Problems?
In the middle of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas casinos use billions of gallons of water for fountains, pirate lagoons, wave machines, and indoor canals. Meanwhile, the town of Orme, Tennessee, must truck in water from Alabama because it has literally run out. Robert Glennon captures the irony and tragedy of America's water crisis that is both frightening and wickedly comical. From manufactured snow for tourists in Atlanta to trillions of gallons of water flushed down the toilet each year, Robert Glennon reveals the heady extravagances and everyday inefficiencies that are sucking the nation dry. The looming catastrophe remains hidden as government diverts supplies from one area to another to keep water flowing from the tap. But sooner rather than later, the shell game has to end. And when it does, shortages will threaten not only the environment, but every aspect of American life: we face shuttered power plants and jobless workers, decimated fisheries and contaminated drinking water. We can't engineer our way out of the problem, either with traditional fixes or zany schemes to tow icebergs from Alaska. In fact, new demands for water, particularly the enormous supply needed for ethanol and energy production, will only worsen the crisis. America must make hard choices and Glennon's answers are fittingly provocative. He proposes market-based solutions that value water as both a commodity and a fundamental human right. One truth runs throughout this lecture: only when we recognize waters worth will we begin to conserve it.

Graphene Sieve turns Seawater into Drinking water | QPT
A new research shows graphene can filter common salts from water to make it safe to drink The new findings could lead to affordable desalination technology. Graphene-oxide membranes have attracted considerable attention as promising candidates for new filtration technologies. Now the much sought-after development of making membranes capable of sieving common salts has been achieved. New research demonstrates the real-world potential of providing clean drinking water for millions of people who struggle to access adequate clean water sources. The new findings from a group of scientists at The University of Manchester were published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Previously graphene-oxide membranes have shown exciting potential for gas separation and water filtration. Graphene-oxide membranes developed at the National Graphene Institute have already demonstrated the potential of filtering out small nanoparticles, organic molecules, and even large salts. Until now, however, they couldn’t be used for sieving common salts used in desalination technologies, which require even smaller sieves. Previous research at The University of Manchester found that if immersed in water, graphene-oxide membranes become slightly swollen and smaller salts flow through the membrane along with water, but larger ions or molecules are blocked. The Manchester-based group have now further developed these graphene membranes and found a strategy to avoid the swelling of the membrane when exposed to water. The pore size in the membrane can be precisely controlled which can sieve common salts out of salty water and make it safe to drink. As the effects of climate change continue to reduce modern city’s water supplies, wealthy modern countries are also investing in desalination technologies. Following the severe floods in California major wealthy cities are also looking increasingly to alternative water solutions. By 2025 the UN expects that 14% of the world’s population will encounter water scarcity. This technology has the potential to revolutionise water filtration across the world, in particular in countries which cannot afford large scale desalination plants. It is hoped that graphene-oxide membrane systems can be built on smaller scales making this technology accessible to countries which do not have the financial infrastructure to fund large plants without compromising the yield of fresh water produced.

Farming With Salty Water Is Possible
One of the many adverse effects of global climate change is the rise of sea levels, which scientists say can increase the salinity level of fresh water reserves. As saline water cannot be used for irrigation, farm fields close to the seashore are lost to agriculture. But a farm in Netherlands has managed to grow healthy and tasty vegetables in soil irrigated with salt water. VOA’s George Putic reports.

FAQ #36: Can I use ocean water in my reef tank? | 52 FAQ
https://goo.gl/kGseUQ Today on BRStv, we have another episode of BRS 52 FAQ where we answer all of your frequently asked reefing questions from our popular 52 Weeks of Reefing series. Today we're answering Kyle Archer's question: "Is there any reason not to use natural seawater for a reef tank?" The truth is, yes you can, but you may want to consider some reasons many reefers choose not to. 1) Clean ocean water is hard to find. 2) It takes a bit of extra work. 3) You'll probably need to adjust it. For these reasons and a few more, most reefers find it much easier to mix up their own saltwater. There are many different manufacturers of synthetic salt mixes, but some of BRS's favorites are HW-Marinemix Reefer Salt Mix and Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix. So stick around as we answer today's question, provide some helpful insights, and help make reefing just bit more fun and easy for you and your tank. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

New Graphene Water Filter Makes Salt Water Drinkable
The United Nations predicts that by 2025 nearly two billion people will be living in places where there's not enough water to go around. And since on average water makes up about 60% of the human body, not having it has a host of devastating effects that go way beyond just being thirsty. That's why some new technology to turn saltwater into drinkable water holds so much promise, VOA's Kevin Enochs reports. Originally published at - http://www.voanews.com/a/3878743.html

Turning Salt water into Drinking water using Solar power | QPT
Read more Tech News at https://www.rtoz.org/ According to the Securing Water for Food agency, between 2000 and 2050 water demand is expected to increase 55 percent globally, meaning the number of people affected by water scarcity will continue to grow. By 2025, two-thirds of the world's population could be living in severe water stress conditions. Around the world, there is more salty groundwater than fresh, drinkable groundwater. For example, 60 percent of India is underlain by salty water — and much of that area is not served by an electric grid that could run conventional reverse-osmosis desalination plants. To find solution for this drinking water issue in developing countries, USAID the U.S. Agency for International Development had run a global competion for Desal prize. The idea for the competition was to create a system that could remove salt from water and meet three criteria: it had to be cost-effective, environmentally sustainable, and energy efficient. The winners of the $140,000 first prize were a group from MIT and Jain Irrigation Systems. The group came up with a method that uses solar panels to charge a bank of batteries. The batteries then power a system that removes salt from the water through electrodialysis, that means that dissolved salt particles, which have a slight electric charge, are drawn out of the water when a small electrical current is applied. Using the sun instead of fossil fuels to power a desalination plant isn't a totally new idea. Larger solar desalination plants are being seriously investigated in areas where water is becoming a scarce resource, including Chile and California.But the current technology is expensive. The MIT team's this new desalination technology "electrodialysis" is comparatively less expensive. Both electrodialysis and reverse osmosis require the use of membranes, but the membranes in an electrodialysis system are exposed to lower pressures and can be cleared of salt buildup simply by reversing the electrical polarity. That means the expensive membranes should last much longer and require less maintenance. In addition, electrodialysis systems recover a much higher percentage of the water — more than 90 percent, compared with about 40 to 60 percent from reverse-osmosis systems, a big advantage in areas where water is scarce.

As explained by Gary the Water Guy. http://youtu.be/CYXCQ1uvqq8 For more great information about water treatment subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/user/WaterStoreMidland There is a popular misconception that water softeners add large amounts of salt to your water to make it soft. This is untrue! If you check out my video on how a water softener works you will soon see that salt is not actually added to your water as it passes through your water softener, rather, the salt is used to make brine which is used to regenerate and clean the media inside the water softener. So is there any more sodium in the water after the water flows through the water softener than before? Yes, but very little, due to the ion exchange process that takes place to soften your water. Should you be concerned about this? Recently I decided to find out exactly how much sodium is added by taking a sample of the tap water from our store and another sample of the water after it passed through our water softener and have them both analyzed for sodium content by a laboratory that specializes in testing water and compare the results. I was shocked! Remember that drinking water guidelines for sodium is 200 mg/l and for people on sodium restricted diets it is 20 mg/l. The raw tap water tested as 8.37 mg/l while the water that had passed through our water softener tested as 8.79 mg/l., an addition of .42 mg/l. So although there was a slight increase it still did not increase the sodium level to even ½ the amount for a sodium restricted diet. So how does this relate in the real world? As a comparison, you would need to drink 2,000 glasses of this softened water for the additional sodium added by softening to equal the sodium in one bagel! That is how little sodium is being added. In fact it is virtually nothing, so no, there is nothing to be concerned about. If you want to remove 95% of the total sodium and other minerals in your water you need a Reverse Osmosis system to give you super pure, delicious drinking water!

How Much Salt Should be in Your Water Softener
How Much Salt Should be in Your Water Softener Please share this video https://youtu.be/C3TpdeNX58E For more great information about water treatment, subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/user/WaterStoreMidland Follow me https://www.facebook.com/TheWaterFilterEstore/ https://twitter.com/FilterEstore https://www.linkedin.com/company/the-water-filter-estore/ or email [email protected] or [email protected] Check out our online store at https//www.TheWaterFilterEstore.com or our full service store in Midland, Ontario at https//www.TheWaterStoreMidland.com How Much Salt Should be in Your Water Softener It might seem obvious to some, but I often hear that there is confusion about how much salt should be in your water softener brine tank, especially families who have experienced a salt clog from over filling their brine tank. The short answer is that the salt level should be higher than the water level for the water softener to perform as designed, but there is more to it than just that. Also, what if your water softener is a "pre fill" model where there is no water in the brine tank after regeneration? Like a lot of things the real answer to how much salt is, "it depends". First you should review my video "How Does a Water Softener Work". Since a water softener sucks out all of the brine (water absorbed salt solution) during the regeneration process, the water must actually be touching the salt to absorb it. So if your water level is above the salt level the water above the salt will not absorb the amount of salt that was intended and you will not regenerate the media fully during the regeneration cycle resulting in hard water for your family. So does this mean you should always keep the brine tank full of salt? No! Since water softeners are very efficient and just about all of them are metered, they use far less salt than ever before, especially high efficiency models like the Aquamaster water softeners. The best water softener salts on the market right now are the ones that are very pure like Windsor System Saver Salt which although it works great, if it does not turn over often enough, it will bind together or clog because there is no dirt to keep the salt from forming clogs. Also, since the water softener's salt usage fully depends on how much water you use (less people = less water usage) and the level of your family's water hardness you can cause yourself considerable grief by keeping it too full, if you're a small family and or your hardness level is relatively low. Compounding this issue is that most water softener brine tanks are too large for the average family application. So what's the bottom line? If your family is relatively small (3 people or less) and your water is not extremely hard (20 gpg or higher) keep your brine tank no more than 1/2 full. Larger families can go up to 3/4 full but no one (other than a commercial application) should keep their brine tanks 100% full.

STRANDED! How to Survive if Marooned on a Deserted Island
How to survive on a desert island. Stay calm. The most important thing for you to do at first is to remain calm and try to think clearly. If you start to panic, you can lose control and end up forfeiting your chances of survival. You won't do that well if you've driven yourself crazy. William Golding's novel 'Pincher Martin' is a great example that illustrates how you can't do anything unless you 'take control', because the main character in the story lets panic get the better of him. Try making a "buddy" out of an object or animal near you, and talk to them to calm down. You should make 'safety, water, shelter and food' your main priorities, in that order. Look around you and decide on some safety precautions. Start by asking yourself if the area around you is safe. Look around again and check if there are there any wild animals lurking in close proximity? Does it appear like there could be a flooding risk? The first important step is establishing whether the place where you are is physically safe. Establishing the Necessities- Look for clean and fresh water supply. Almost all people who are lost out at sea are found in a matter of hours or days. Science tells us that the human body can survive up to 2 weeks without food, but just 3-4 days without water. So if there is no natural source of fresh water, start looking for a way to collect rainwater. Any source of water is great! As long as you have found a source of water, you can try to purify or desalinate it later. If fresh water is available, try boil it for 2-3 minutes. This will purify it. If you have a desalination device, that's even better! If not, don't fret, there are actually several methods by which you can desalinate water. One such method is distillation. To distillate water, construct a solar still, or one that works over a fire. A solar still can be built by filling a large, flat container with salt water or even urine which can be re-used, if the need arises. Place a smaller container in the center with a rock inside it to hold it in place. Cover it with a thin sheet of plastic or whatever similar material you have and place a rock in the center above the cup. If placed in direct sunlight, the water will evaporate and it will condense on the plastic sheet, which will then run down the sheet and drip into the smaller container. For a method that works over a fire, create steam and condense the steam by using a large piece of metal or glass placed inside the steam. This will allow the condensed water to run into another container. Create a shelter. You will need a shelter as protection from the elements and from natural predators as well. The best options are usually a natural shelter such as a cave, or one that you build. The next step to follow after having found a natural shelter, is to build a more enduring shelter. A shelter acts as a home base, a warm and shady place for you to sleep in, a place for storing your resources, and a hiding place from beasts of prey as well. Ensure that the shelter above the ground so that bugs don't crawl all over you. Image titled Live on a Deserted Island Step 5 Find sources of food. The ocean is filled with life. Try building a low V-shaped wall made of stones at low tide, with the pointed part of the V pointing out towards the sea. At high tide, fish will swim into it, and get trapped as the tide flows out. There are a lot of edible roots and berries that you can actually consider eating, but do remember to watch out! Some of these roots and berries are poisonous and eating them would probably be fatal. Only eat them if you are sure they are safe to eat. The most reliable source of food on a deserted island are bugs. Yes, bugs! They can be found everywhere and they are an excellent source of protein, too. If you decide to fish with the bugs instead of eating them, a hook can be fashioned by carving out a stick into a hook shape and putting a barb on it. Tie string to it and you're in business. Take the time to evaluate your resources. Have you found a source of fresh water? Do you have a long range radio, satellite phone, or any other means of communication? Try to find other people who might be inhabiting the island. Remember that people can be your greatest resource. Start a fire. This may seem a bit trivial, but on a deserted island, fire has a number of uses. At the very least, it boosts morale. Fire can also be used to distill water, to cook, and to provide light for you and for your rescuers who can find you if they spot the fire! If you can't start a fire, don't worry, just move on to the next step and keep on trying. Music: SOS by Dhruva Aliman https://dhruvaaliman.bandcamp.com/album/what-must-be http://www.dhruvaaliman.com/
