Solar heaters are gaining popularity and with good reason- they provide heat. This design uses solar fans to move the heat into the room so its totally off grid and will work during a power outage. Because it is attached to the window it can also be closed by shutting the window and keep the heat inside the unit for off grid solar cooking. This design also allows the unit to be attached all year for ease of use and can keep the heat from entering the home when its not needed. Solar cook all summer, heat all winter; Save money all year!
- How to build a Simple Homemade Water Distiller that turns dirty water/salt water into clean fresh pure water
[the_ad id="6432"] This video shows the build of a "pure water" Water Distiller that easily turns dirty water/salt water etc... into clean fresh pure water. This produces lots of clean water fast. Made from close to 12 feet of copper tubing along with a few fittings (optional stainless steel tube shown as well). video contains full instructions on how to build it. Early testing shows it produces about a quart in 1.5 hrs (and half gallon in 2.5 hrs). note that i soldered on the copper fitting. If you don't have a torch, they sell "push on" fittings that require no soldering. *if soldering, remember to use "lead-free" solder.The process is simple. It boils water and creates steam. The steam rises without bringing any of the impurities along with it. The steam travels through the coils and slowly cools and condenses. It finally condenses back to its liquid form and drips out as clean water.
This 3 part video series shows the build of a 9ft Shallow Water Well using a shovel and other easily available materials .Considering that most disasters can cause serious disruptions in the water supply and the importance of water for survival, putting in a well is a great idea. Of all the possible sources for water, having a well on your own property is the most secure source you can have.Even so, if the grid goes down, that water could be out of your reach, if you don’t take the right precautions. There’s something that our ancestors all had on their property, which we don’t often have today. No, I’m not referencing a barn, although that would be true. I’m referring to a well.You may be able to augment your home or homestead's water supply for very little cost by digging a shallow well.
