The human body is composed of more than 70 percent water. Maintaining a healthy level of water in your body is important because a lack of this essential liquid can cause a myriad of health problems. Actually, you won’t even survive without water for more than 3 days. That’s how important water is to your survival.
When you’re lost in the forest or washed ashore, you need to ensure that you have a source of clean, drinkable water if you want to survive. You can’t drink directly from the sea because the salt level is enough to damage your kidneys and cause even more dehydration.
Using the simple setup shown in the following DIY tutorial video, you will learn how to turn salt water into fresh water using the scientific process of distillation. Basically, what it does is extract drinkable water from the water you took from the sea through evaporation and condensation.
