"If just I had a vacuum filtering device” you say to yourself. "But is so expensive..."
Well, here I will show you how to make your own vacuum-filtering device at a very affordable cost.
What you will need is:
- Glass bottle (0.5 - 1 Liter)
- A length of 8mm hose (1 meter)
- Small plastic bottle
- Glass drill bit (preferably diamond)
- Cordless drill
- A vacuum cleaner
Get a small plastic bottle (vitamin bottles are perfect) that will fit the handle of you vacuum cleaner and cut the bottom away.
Drill a 8mm hole on the top and fit the hose through it.
Now get your 8mm glass drill bit and drill a hole through your glass bottle.
In the example I am using a 1.14L bottle, but you can use whatever you fell happy with.
Drill the hole slowly. I do it under the water tap with enough water running to keep the bit and the glass cool.
When the job is done fit the hose through it and you are done!
If you want, you can use silicone to seal the hose, or wrap a bit of insulating tape around it to make a tight fit.
Check the pictures I have attached. You will find I have 2 devices myself: one for bulkier filtration and other for crystal filtration. It works great and will save you a lot of time.
Thanks for reading guys!
