Miles calls it a filter, it is,it does,but I would call it a prefilter. Our commerical swimming pools use sand filters.If you've seen pool room equipment its the great big ol round thing with pipes running to it.I think miles has off to a great start we take his bucket with spigot at bottom.
Now commerical pool filters use sand or diatomesous earth,ground up dinosaur fossils I believe.Ok we take miles bucket place a layer of of washed stones,cheesecloth or clean flannel,(old shirt maybe) then a layer of pool sand.I think any fine white sand will work,brown play ground sand is very dirty sediment would be terrible.Sand is cheap Diat earth not sure will check on it and follow up.I think three or for layers, would be sufficent.Probally could use clean sheet,pillow case,muslin.
For rain water this maybe enough,if doubtfull,treat with chlorinre. Gotta run lake and creek water will be seperate post.
Hopefully this will just be start to get us all thinking.As always comment are not only welcome but needed.Never feel your comment is stupid or wortless,even if you didn't have solution,you may have got someone else thinkin that has the solution.
