How to build your own solar still
You can try this at home!
- Dig a pit into the ground
- Place a bowl at the bottom of the pit that will be used to catch the condensed water
- Cover the pit loosly with a plastic sheet (you can use stones or other heavy objects to hold it in place over the pit)
- Be sure that the lowest part of the plastic sheet hovers directly over the bowl
- Leave your water "trap" overnight and water can be collected from the bowl in the morning
