This video shows you can pump water from a very low creek or water source without any electricity by building a Simple Low Flow intake Ram Pump.This is ideal for any low flow creek,spring with around 30 gal per minute flow rate.This Ram Pump will need a continuous flow of water to operate. Determining the flow rate will help determine the size pump that you need.Measure your gallons per minute by placing a 5 gallon bucket in the water and collect all the water while timing how long it takes to fill the bucket and divide the gallons of water by the time in seconds and then multiply by 60 seconds to get GPM.

This video shows the build of a Emergency Water Distillation Portable Still that removes biological, salt and heavy metal contamination from drinking water.The still is made by putting an upside-down stainless steel funnel over a pot of boiling water as a lid. Ideally the pot is designed for cooking, but in an emergency any metal container, such as a soda can, may be used. Connect a 1/2 inch diameter copper pipe to the funnel with three 45 degree elbow fittings. Put a damp rag on the pipe to condense the steam. Fresh, drinkable water will drip out of end of the pipe.

This video shows the build of a simple off grid washer machine which can also act as a composter.If you thought the only way to wash clothing off grid was to take them down to the creek and beat them against a rock, think again.All you need in order to build this washer is a plastic barrel, some pipes, and – you guessed it – a wooden frame. The frame is meant to support the barrel and keep it from rolling away. You’re going to use the pipes to attach the barrel to the frame, as well as to create the lever that helps you wash the clothes.

This video shows the build of a Homemade Inexpensive Concrete Mixer made out of 55 Gal Drum from start to finish.This build uses a salvaged 90V DC Gear driven motor.A motorcycle sprocket is welded on to the front of gear drive which fits the chain that goes around the Barrel. The most important benefit of a concrete mixer is that it can save a lot of labor. Mixing cement by hand is a difficult and time-consuming process.Another benefit of using a concrete mixer is that the mixer can ensure that cement or concrete is blended homogeneously, creating a much better result than mixing manually and helping prevent flaws in the finished cement.

This video shows an easy conversion of an Old Ceiling Fan motor into a Power producing 40 Watt 200V 3000RPM Alternator Generator that can used for powering your devices.The ceiling fan motors have the stator in the center and the outer portion that usually attaches to the fan blades rotates around the stationary stator. This allows for Neodymium Magnets to be placed around the perimeter. When the outer portion spins, it produces an alternating current. For conversion of an alternating current (AC) input into direct current a (DC) output, a bridge rectifier is used
