    It’s more like a water filtration “kit”. I wouldn’t call it “homemade” if
    you are using store bought buckets and filters. That being said, you need a
    prefilter to pick away the larger items or else your filter will expire
    very soon. You will also want to check the chemical composition of your
    buckets, they might leak toxic crap into the water. Also what is the
    filtration limit of your filter? 200nm?
