In Relation to most filtration methods, water is carefully introduced to one side of the filter, which acts to block the passage of anything larger than the pore size, typically bacteria, protozoa, and microbial cysts are removed Ceramic water filters may be treated with silver in a form that will not leach away. The silver helps to kill or incapacitate bacteria and prevent the growth of mold and algae in the body of the filter.
This is an idea that has been modernized in Other countries like Cambodia but not in Africa, In Africa tradition they boil water and filter it through a sieve .So if we introduce the use of ceramic water filters systems that consists of a permeable ceramic filter that is close to, or sits on top of a plastic or ceramic vessel. Contaminated water is poured into a top container. It passes through the filter into the vessel below. The lower container usually is fitted with a tap.Contaminants bigger than the tiny holes of the ceramic structure remains in the top half of the unit. The filters can be cleaned by brushing them with a soft brush and rinsing them with clean water. Hot water and soap can also be used.
We can also use water bags to ensure that we keep clean water for a long time.
