DIY Video : How to Dig a Shallow Well from Scratch.Step by step Video Instructions

    This video shows How to dig a shallow well on your property from dowsing to digging to capping. This shallow well will provide water for our bees and supporting plants. This dig uses a modified hand auger and took about 4 hours to complete (17 feet with nearly 4 feet of water).Learning how to dig a well is a good lesson that every prepper should master.Even if it doesn’t come to a survival scenario, having your own water supply means that you’re basically off the grid. You’re not dependent upon third parties.

    • How to generate Free and Emergency hot water for your house by building a Waste Oil powered water heater
      This Video shows the build of a water heater from an old gas hot water service and converted it to run on waste oil instead of gas.The system could easily be set up in an off grid or prepper type location as it only needs a small amount of 12V power to supply the car blower I used here. The burner runs on any waste oil and is gravity fed without the need for Nozzles, pumps or compressors. As well as providing Domestic hot water, the output can also be used in a home heating system which is what I plan to set up for my home this winter.It could also be used for an outdoor shower, to heat water for animal troughs, to heat a spa or small swimming pool or other uses to replace gas or electric how water heating.
