Ordering and Creating
Last week we finally developed our blueprint and the supplements we will need for our filter. This week, we have been researching and testing to make sure that our materials are safe and work to do the things we need them to do. We are still waiting on our order of ph testers and salinity testers. Also, we just put in our order for a strong oil of oregano to kill bacteria, and we just purchased some charcoal at the store. We have already done some testing with the membrane filter paper and we are have discovered that it seems to work better with added pressure and a little bit of coconut oil on the top. The container we will be using will be an old, standing basketball pump, so the water can be pressurized, which makes the desalination process faster. We plan to start testing putting together the filter next Wednesday, when we have received all of our supplements and supplies.
