How to Make a 3 Tier Water Filtration System

The Red Headed Flame and I make a first attempt and building a simple primitive teepee style water filtration system. This is something that can be used in a survival situation and can be created with basic hand tools.

The 3 layers of the filter consist of:

1) Grass (or leaves)
2) Sand (or silt)
3) Charcoal
