Primitive Survival Skills: Primitive Technology Salt Water Filter - Full
Primitive Technology Salt Water Filter is a full video tutorial on how to survive on an island where there is no fresh water. First we built a primitive pot, we perforated a small hole on the pot. Then we took a bamboo tube and made a chiller. Cooling water so that water vapor can condense into droplets to obtain maximum water. We take the sea water to boil. Fresh water then evaporates and produces fresh water. Salt will precipitate at the bottom of the pot. By the original technology we had to salvage sea water to obtain fresh water and salt. We will continue to work on the next video on primitive technology and survival skills. Subscribe to the channel to keep track of the latest videos Channel: https://goo.gl/2j7yCS

What Happens When You Drink SeaWater?
Video by https://www.kramgallery.com/ Over 2/3rds of the earth is covered in water, but only 2% of that water is pure. As clean drinking water becomes more scarce, you maybe wondering…What happens if I drink seawater? Let’s first examine how our bodies absorb water. You may remember the process of Osmosis where water moves from a less concentrated solution to a more concentrated solution, through a semi permeable membrane. The cell’s membrane allows water to pass through, but not the particles dissolved in water, like salt. Normally the saltiness of water inside our cells is the same as the saltiness outside our cells. When you drink water, a concentration difference takes place. Water from the outside your cell moves inside to maintain balance. This is called an isotonic state. When you drink too much seawater, the saltiness outside your cells will increase rapidly and the cells force water molecules out in order to restore balance. So even if you are already dehydrated, drinking sea water will cause your cells to release more water and you will end up peeing out more liquid than you take in. Conversely if you chug a massive amount of pure water, the exact opposite will happen. The saltiness outside your cells will decrease rapidly and water will be forced into your cells. This can cause the cells to swell and burst, which in extreme cases leads to seizures, coma and sometimes death! This would only occur if you were to chug 6 liters or more in an instant though. So what can you do if you are stranded on a deserted island with absolutely NO fresh water around? The simplest way to extract fresh clean water from the ocean is through distillation, which separates the salt from the water. In order to distill water you must heat the sea water so it evaporates, then trap the evaporated water vapor until it cools and condenses back into liquid water. Kinda like the moisture on your bathroom mirror after a hot shower. This condensed water will be free of all salt and 100% safe to drink.

How to convert seawater into drinking water [Class 6, Chapter 14, Water, NCERT]
Clearly, I do not want you to get stuck on a deserted island. Also, thankfully, I was not stuck on a deserted island myself; thus finding a plastic container wasn't too difficult. This video was a contrived attempt to urge middle school students to think about evaporation and condensation. Please do not use this method to distill water if you are actually stuck on an island. The water you produce will not be drinkable. And if you are watching this on YouTube while stranded on an island, then please check Whatsapp to see if you can connect with a friend who can come rescue you. Finally, here are some reliable sources that offer advice on how to collect drinking water in case you do get stranded. 1) National Geographic suggests that if you get stranded on an island, then your best chance of getting drinking water is to "collect rainwater." It also suggests that you can turn seawater into drinking water by "digging a hole in the ground, putting a container at the bottom and surrounding it with wet leaves... then, put a piece of plastic, such as tarp, on top of the hole and weigh it down with rocks so water can collect and fall into the container." http://www.nationalgeographic.com.au/nature/how-to-survive-on-a-deserted-island.aspx 2) USGS recommends using a "solar-still" to convert seawater to drinking water by leveraging evaporation and condensation while using a life raft. https://water.usgs.gov/edu/drinkseawater.html

New Graphene Water Filter Makes Salt Water Drinkable
The United Nations predicts that by 2025 nearly two billion people will be living in places where there's not enough water to go around. And since on average water makes up about 60% of the human body, not having it has a host of devastating effects that go way beyond just being thirsty. That's why some new technology to turn saltwater into drinkable water holds so much promise, VOA's Kevin Enochs reports. Originally published at - http://www.voanews.com/a/3878743.html

How Seawater Desalination Works
CASE STUDY: Desalination is a complicated process, the Seven Seas Corp.* approached DaVinci Studio to develop an animation that simplified the explanation of the process. Taking a cue from Seven Seas we started with squiggly style animation to give the technical looking components a non-technical look. Bottom line is to go from engineering-speak to the layman's level. Desalination (also called "desalinization" and "desalting") is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater or brackish water. Desalting technologies can be used for many applications. The most prevalent use is to produce potable water from saline water for domestic or municipal purposes. Desalination 101 IDA | International Desalination Association [http://www.idadesal.org] *Seven Seas Water Corporation, a major player in the water treatment industry, with an expanded presence throughout the Bahamas, Curacao, Mexico, Sint Maarten, Turks and Caicos Islands, U.S.A. and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

How to change gaskets on a Volvo Penta sea water strainer
The gaskets on the copper pipes at the bottom of the sea water filter has over time leaked a little water so I thought it was a good idea to change them to some new. The price for two rubber gaskets is 10 US Dollars. Think they will last for 10-15 years before they will leak again.

Salt Water Swimming Pools - Myths & Truths you Need to Know
WEBSITE: http://www.swimmingpoollearning.com/ YouTube Video Index -- A list of all of my videos: http://poolmandave.blogspot.com/2014/03/swimming-pool-tips-reviews-how-to-video.html In this video I dispel some commonly held Myths about a salt Water Pool. Often referred to as Salt Water Generators. There are several videos on YouTube on this subject so I decided to weigh in myself. One-third of my pool route -- roughly 35 pools are Salt Water Pools. So I have lots of practical real world experience with salt pools. My personal pool is also a salt pool and has been for the past nine years. Some of the benefits are: A good chlorine level all of the time. Softer water and no chemical smells. You get away from handling chemicals that are known carcinogens. Makes maintaining your pool much easier. Salt Water Generators are reliable and easy to operate (most of them are reliable). Eliminates the need for shocking your pool. Most Salt water Generators will have a Super Chlorinate mode. Some of the drawbacks: Higher cost of maintaining your pool. A slight learning curve. Some cities restrict draining a salt water pool. PH will constantly rise in a salt pool. Cannot be installed in a pool with copper pipes. So after watching the video I hope you feel more confident about making a more informed decision if a salt water generator is right for you or not. If you have questions or need help picking out the right salt system you can comment here or contact me on my website and I will further assist you.

Graphene Sieve turns Seawater into Drinking water | QPT
A new research shows graphene can filter common salts from water to make it safe to drink The new findings could lead to affordable desalination technology. Graphene-oxide membranes have attracted considerable attention as promising candidates for new filtration technologies. Now the much sought-after development of making membranes capable of sieving common salts has been achieved. New research demonstrates the real-world potential of providing clean drinking water for millions of people who struggle to access adequate clean water sources. The new findings from a group of scientists at The University of Manchester were published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Previously graphene-oxide membranes have shown exciting potential for gas separation and water filtration. Graphene-oxide membranes developed at the National Graphene Institute have already demonstrated the potential of filtering out small nanoparticles, organic molecules, and even large salts. Until now, however, they couldn’t be used for sieving common salts used in desalination technologies, which require even smaller sieves. Previous research at The University of Manchester found that if immersed in water, graphene-oxide membranes become slightly swollen and smaller salts flow through the membrane along with water, but larger ions or molecules are blocked. The Manchester-based group have now further developed these graphene membranes and found a strategy to avoid the swelling of the membrane when exposed to water. The pore size in the membrane can be precisely controlled which can sieve common salts out of salty water and make it safe to drink. As the effects of climate change continue to reduce modern city’s water supplies, wealthy modern countries are also investing in desalination technologies. Following the severe floods in California major wealthy cities are also looking increasingly to alternative water solutions. By 2025 the UN expects that 14% of the world’s population will encounter water scarcity. This technology has the potential to revolutionise water filtration across the world, in particular in countries which cannot afford large scale desalination plants. It is hoped that graphene-oxide membrane systems can be built on smaller scales making this technology accessible to countries which do not have the financial infrastructure to fund large plants without compromising the yield of fresh water produced.

FAQ #36: Can I use ocean water in my reef tank? | 52 FAQ
https://goo.gl/kGseUQ Today on BRStv, we have another episode of BRS 52 FAQ where we answer all of your frequently asked reefing questions from our popular 52 Weeks of Reefing series. Today we're answering Kyle Archer's question: "Is there any reason not to use natural seawater for a reef tank?" The truth is, yes you can, but you may want to consider some reasons many reefers choose not to. 1) Clean ocean water is hard to find. 2) It takes a bit of extra work. 3) You'll probably need to adjust it. For these reasons and a few more, most reefers find it much easier to mix up their own saltwater. There are many different manufacturers of synthetic salt mixes, but some of BRS's favorites are HW-Marinemix Reefer Salt Mix and Red Sea Coral Pro Salt Mix. So stick around as we answer today's question, provide some helpful insights, and help make reefing just bit more fun and easy for you and your tank. *Legal Stuff* The purpose and content of this video is to provide general information regarding the products and their applications as presented in the video.

How does a water softener work? Find out in this video! The water that you use every day can be hard on both you and your house. Using a water softening system helps reduce water contaminants and scale buildup, and also extends the life of your appliances. The main disadvantages of hard water are: It can leave a film of soap scum on your dishes and bathroom fixtures It can an cause mineral build-up in pipes and appliances It can reduce the efficiency of heating elements in water heaters It can promote corrosion It reduces the lather of soap and shampoo during showers It makes laundry feel stiffer and look less vibrant Water is considered hard when it contains large amounts of dissolved calcium, magnesium, iron and other minerals. Water hardness is measured in milligrams per liter. Soft water has a hardness range of less than 17 mg/L. Hard water comes in at 121 to over 180 mg/L. You can have your tap water analyzed in a lab, but there are visual signs that your tap water is hard. It can leave soap scum behind on sinks and bath tubs, form scale in washing machines, dishwashers, coffee makers, humidifiers, water heaters, etc. That’s where water softeners come into play. They are ion exchange systems, meaning the hardness ions (calcium and magnesium) are exchanged for salt ions. The exchange takes place in a resin tank of the water softener system. Water flows through the resin and comes in contact with the small resin beads which are covered with salt ions, and hardness ions trade places with salt ions. Think of the resin as a magnetic sponge that traps the metals found in hard water. The only maintenance required is to recharge the resin beads by adding bags of salt to the brine tank. This washing system reverses the process meaning that the hardness ions swap places with the salt ions in the brine tank and excess minerals are rinsed into the wastewater drain. In my case, we are two adults living in our house and we use approximately 2 bags of salt per month (at 8$ a bag) for a yearly maintenance cost of 128$. Costs vary depending on how many people live in the house, how much water is consumed and the water hardness level in your home. The main advantages to a water softening system are: Lower energy consumption by reducing scale build-up in water heaters You can reduce the amount of soap you need to create lather Extend the lifetime of plumbing Silkier feel of water when washing Softer clothes after washing Welcome to Pan TheOrganizer, a Youtube channel designed to help people improve different aspects of their lives through fun and entertaining videos!

New Tech Makes Seawater Safe To Drink
Access to clean drinking water is a huge problem in the world, and leads to millions of deaths a year. Scientists have tried to work on the problem, finding ways to make water otherwise unsafe to drink potable. There's a the membrane technique-- but it's very expensive and not a viable option in water-stressed areas. There's a new idea from the University of Texas at Austin in the form of a small chip that neutralizes chloride ions at the microscale, desalinating the water. It's promising...but is the tech there yet? Kim Horcher and science educator Cara Santa Maria discuss the new development.

Freshwater from salt water using only solar energy
A federally funded research effort to revolutionize water treatment has yielded an off-grid technology that uses energy from sunlight alone to turn salt water into fresh drinking water. The desalination system, which uses a combination of membrane distillation technology and light-harvesting nanophotonics, is the first major innovation from the Center for Nanotechnology Enabled Water Treatment (NEWT), a multi-institutional engineering research center based at Rice University.

Survival Camping: #1 Turn Seawater into Fresh Water with Trash
The purpose of this adventure was to have fun while practicing survival skills. I carried an ultralight backpack, camped between the sand dunes and used trash on the beach to distill seawater. Two cups of drinking water per hour! Amazingly simple. Awesome fun. During the past several years I’ve been intersted in making portable stills for water distillation: simple approaches that could be used when hiking, especially in emergencies. The stills I’ve made have continuously improved, with the help for may people from the bushcraft and survival YouTube community. As my friend Darby (RiverBendSurvival) says: “The only way to master it, is to get in the dirt and do it.” Distillation removes biological, salt and heavy metal contamination from drinking water. Distallation is often the preferred method of water treatment in deveoping countries where water is heavily contaminated. Distillation is used for drinking water on ships. Ultralight Backpack: My fully loaded pack for this trip without food and water was 9.3 lb (4.2 kg): - Ozark Trail 28 L Atka Backpack 0.75 lb (0.34 kg) - Nylon Ground Cloth 5x7 ft, sight Al stakes, 0.70 lb (0.32 kg) - Sea to Summit Aeros Pillow 0.017 lb ( 0.08 kg) - Sterno Stove and Stanley 20 oz stainless steel pot (backup, not used), 1.37 lb (0.62kg) - Stainless Steel Funnel and coupling parts for still (could be replaced w/ aluminum foil)1.3 lb (0.59 kg) - Stainless Steel Water bottle (empty) 0.33 lb (0.15 kg) - Sol Escape Bivvy 0.53 lb (0.24 kg) - Ozark Trail Sun Wall Tarp 6x10 ft and Cordage 1.10 lb (0.50 kg) - Medical Kit, Compass, Map, Light, 0.29 lb (0.13 kg) - Aluminum Trowel, Paper, Bug Repellent, Lighter, 0.24 lb (0.11 kg) - Small Tripod 1.50 lb (0.68kg) - HeatKeep Down Jacket, Wool Cap and Scarf 1.15 lb (0.52 kg) ++++++++ - Food for 1-1/2 days: 1 lb ( 0.45 kg) - Pocket items: knife, flashlight, aluminum foil, tape, GoPro camera, Iphone 6+, keys, wallet, lighter, matches, battery charger for phone and camera - I carried no fresh water, but rather depended on seawater distillation Stay tuned for continuous improvement.

Why Don't We Just Use Desalination Of Ocean Water To Solve Our Water Shortage Problems?
In the middle of the Mojave Desert, Las Vegas casinos use billions of gallons of water for fountains, pirate lagoons, wave machines, and indoor canals. Meanwhile, the town of Orme, Tennessee, must truck in water from Alabama because it has literally run out. Robert Glennon captures the irony and tragedy of America's water crisis that is both frightening and wickedly comical. From manufactured snow for tourists in Atlanta to trillions of gallons of water flushed down the toilet each year, Robert Glennon reveals the heady extravagances and everyday inefficiencies that are sucking the nation dry. The looming catastrophe remains hidden as government diverts supplies from one area to another to keep water flowing from the tap. But sooner rather than later, the shell game has to end. And when it does, shortages will threaten not only the environment, but every aspect of American life: we face shuttered power plants and jobless workers, decimated fisheries and contaminated drinking water. We can't engineer our way out of the problem, either with traditional fixes or zany schemes to tow icebergs from Alaska. In fact, new demands for water, particularly the enormous supply needed for ethanol and energy production, will only worsen the crisis. America must make hard choices and Glennon's answers are fittingly provocative. He proposes market-based solutions that value water as both a commodity and a fundamental human right. One truth runs throughout this lecture: only when we recognize waters worth will we begin to conserve it.

Graphene-based sieve turns seawater into drinking water
Graphene-based sieve turns seawater into drinking water A UK-based team of researchers has created a graphene-based sieve capable of removing salt from seawater. The sought-after development could aid the millions of people without ready access to clean drinking water. The promising graphene oxide sieve could be highly efficient at filtering salts, and will now be tested against existing desalination membranes. It has previously been difficult to manufacture graphene-based barriers on an industrial scale. Reporting their results in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, scientists from the University of Manchester, led by Dr Rahul Nair, shows how they solved some of the challenges by using a chemical derivative called graphene oxide. Isolated and characterised by a University of Manchester-led team in 2004, graphene comprises a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice. Its unusual properties, such as extraordinary tensile strength and electrical conductivity, have earmarked it as one of the most promising materials for future applications. But it has been difficult to produce large quantities of single-layer graphene using existing methods, such as chemical vapour deposition (CVD). Current production routes are also quite costly. On the other hand, said Dr Nair, "graphene oxide can be produced by simple oxidation in the lab". He told BBC News: "As an ink or solution, we can compose it on a substrate or porous material. Then we can use it as a membrane. "In terms of scalability and the cost of the material, graphene oxide has a potential advantage over single-layered graphene." Clean waterImage copyrightEPA Image caption Access to clean water remains a major issue for millions of people around the world Of the single-layer graphene he added: "To make it permeable, you need to drill small holes in the membrane. But if the hole size is larger than one nanometre, the salts go through that hole. You have to make a membrane with a very uniform less-than-one-nanometre hole size to make it useful for desalination. It is a really challenging job." Graphene oxide membranes have already proven their worth in sieving out small nanoparticles, organic molecules and even large salts. But until now, they couldn't be used to filter out common salts, which require even smaller sieves. Previous work had shown that graphene oxide membranes became slightly swollen when immersed in water, allowing smaller salts to flow through the pores along with water molecules. Now, Dr Nair and colleagues demonstrated that placing walls made of epoxy resin (a substance used in coatings and glues) on either side of the graphene oxide membrane was sufficient to stop the expansion. Restricting the swelling in this way also allowed the scientists to tune the properties of the membrane, letting through less or more common salt for example. When common salts are dissolved in water, they always form a "shell" of water molecules around the salt molecules. This allows the tiny capillaries of the graphene-oxide membranes to block the salt from flowing through along with the water. "Water molecules can go through individually, but sodium chloride cannot. It always needs the help of the water molecules. The size of the shell of water around the salt is larger than the channel size, so it cannot go through," said Dr Nair.

Farming With Salty Water Is Possible
One of the many adverse effects of global climate change is the rise of sea levels, which scientists say can increase the salinity level of fresh water reserves. As saline water cannot be used for irrigation, farm fields close to the seashore are lost to agriculture. But a farm in Netherlands has managed to grow healthy and tasty vegetables in soil irrigated with salt water. VOA’s George Putic reports.

STRANDED! How to Survive if Marooned on a Deserted Island
How to survive on a desert island. Stay calm. The most important thing for you to do at first is to remain calm and try to think clearly. If you start to panic, you can lose control and end up forfeiting your chances of survival. You won't do that well if you've driven yourself crazy. William Golding's novel 'Pincher Martin' is a great example that illustrates how you can't do anything unless you 'take control', because the main character in the story lets panic get the better of him. Try making a "buddy" out of an object or animal near you, and talk to them to calm down. You should make 'safety, water, shelter and food' your main priorities, in that order. Look around you and decide on some safety precautions. Start by asking yourself if the area around you is safe. Look around again and check if there are there any wild animals lurking in close proximity? Does it appear like there could be a flooding risk? The first important step is establishing whether the place where you are is physically safe. Establishing the Necessities- Look for clean and fresh water supply. Almost all people who are lost out at sea are found in a matter of hours or days. Science tells us that the human body can survive up to 2 weeks without food, but just 3-4 days without water. So if there is no natural source of fresh water, start looking for a way to collect rainwater. Any source of water is great! As long as you have found a source of water, you can try to purify or desalinate it later. If fresh water is available, try boil it for 2-3 minutes. This will purify it. If you have a desalination device, that's even better! If not, don't fret, there are actually several methods by which you can desalinate water. One such method is distillation. To distillate water, construct a solar still, or one that works over a fire. A solar still can be built by filling a large, flat container with salt water or even urine which can be re-used, if the need arises. Place a smaller container in the center with a rock inside it to hold it in place. Cover it with a thin sheet of plastic or whatever similar material you have and place a rock in the center above the cup. If placed in direct sunlight, the water will evaporate and it will condense on the plastic sheet, which will then run down the sheet and drip into the smaller container. For a method that works over a fire, create steam and condense the steam by using a large piece of metal or glass placed inside the steam. This will allow the condensed water to run into another container. Create a shelter. You will need a shelter as protection from the elements and from natural predators as well. The best options are usually a natural shelter such as a cave, or one that you build. The next step to follow after having found a natural shelter, is to build a more enduring shelter. A shelter acts as a home base, a warm and shady place for you to sleep in, a place for storing your resources, and a hiding place from beasts of prey as well. Ensure that the shelter above the ground so that bugs don't crawl all over you. Image titled Live on a Deserted Island Step 5 Find sources of food. The ocean is filled with life. Try building a low V-shaped wall made of stones at low tide, with the pointed part of the V pointing out towards the sea. At high tide, fish will swim into it, and get trapped as the tide flows out. There are a lot of edible roots and berries that you can actually consider eating, but do remember to watch out! Some of these roots and berries are poisonous and eating them would probably be fatal. Only eat them if you are sure they are safe to eat. The most reliable source of food on a deserted island are bugs. Yes, bugs! They can be found everywhere and they are an excellent source of protein, too. If you decide to fish with the bugs instead of eating them, a hook can be fashioned by carving out a stick into a hook shape and putting a barb on it. Tie string to it and you're in business. Take the time to evaluate your resources. Have you found a source of fresh water? Do you have a long range radio, satellite phone, or any other means of communication? Try to find other people who might be inhabiting the island. Remember that people can be your greatest resource. Start a fire. This may seem a bit trivial, but on a deserted island, fire has a number of uses. At the very least, it boosts morale. Fire can also be used to distill water, to cook, and to provide light for you and for your rescuers who can find you if they spot the fire! If you can't start a fire, don't worry, just move on to the next step and keep on trying. Music: SOS by Dhruva Aliman https://dhruvaaliman.bandcamp.com/album/what-must-be http://www.dhruvaaliman.com/

A sponge might not look like much, but these simple animals with no brain or ability to move have lived on Earth for hundreds of millions of years. They can hunt prey and spawn, and Jonathan demonstrates how in this fascinating segment about the biology of sponges! ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe!

Cleaning sponges are synthetic these days, but they used to come from the ocean. Back in the days before we had synthetic sponges for housework, cleaning sponges did come from the ocean. They were harvested by hard-hat divers walking along the ocean floor in heavy weighted boots with a rake-like tool to pluck the sponges off the bottom. It was a dangerous and difficult job. Bagfuls of sponges were lifted to the boat above. Immediately, the crew set to work cleaning the sponges. Then they were hung to air dry. After days or weeks at sea, when the boat was full of sponges, they were taken to shore, where they were auctioned to the highest bidder. Finally they were trimmed, sorted and sold to the public. Natural sponges are still harvested in nearly the same way today, but the synthetic sponge has spared the lives of countless ocean sponges! While an ocean sponge looks something like a weird plant, it's actually an animal. In fact, sponges are among the simplest multi-cellular animals on Earth. They live on the bottom of the ocean, attached to a surface and never moving because they can't walk or swim. Some are quite colorful, while others are drab. They also come in all shapes and sizes. There are tube sponges, vase sponges, barrel sponges, rope sponges, encrusting sponges and many other types. Sponges live from the frigid waters of the arctic and Antarctic, to the tropics. On many coral reefs, sponges dominate the sea floor and the drop off. One of the most common sponges on coral reefs is the barrel sponge. Barrel sponges grow to epic proportions, getting larger than a person! Although sponges can't walk or swim, they can feed. They do it by filtering tiny plankton from the water. A sponge is covered with small pores, called ostia, which lead to a system of internal canals and eventually out to one or more larger holes, called oscula. Within the canals of the sponge, chambers are lined with specialized cells called choanocytes, or collar cells. The collar cells have a sticky, funnel shaped collar and a hairlike whip, called a flagellum. The collar cells serve two purposes. First, they beat their flagella back and forth like fans to move water through the sponge. The water brings in nutrients and oxygen, while it carries out waste and carbon dioxide. Second, the sticky collars of the collar cells pick up tiny bits of planktonic food brought in with the water. Sponges are very effective filter feeders, since they are able to capture and eat particles as small as bacteria as well as much larger particles. They might not look like they are doing much, but a simple demonstration shows how effectively sponges can pump water. On a reef in the Caribbean, I make a dive with a syringe filled with a non-toxic dye called fluorescein. By squirting it around the base of some sponges, we can observe how the water is moving by watching what the dye does. Within only seconds, the dye is pumped through the sponges along with the water. As you can see, a sponge is a pretty good water pump, and also a good strainer. Any plankton that goes in with the water, won't come back out through the osculum. Tube sponges are even more spectacular to observe. They pump the dye so furiously that they look like a collection of miniature smoke stacks! Since sponges can't get together to reproduce, they spawn in a way similar to coral. The sperm is released into the water column by the male sponge and finds its way to the female sponges, where fertilization occurs internally. Eventually, the planktonic larvae are released from the female sponge and float around in the water column as plankton for only a few days. They then settle down and start growing. Sponges don't have many predators. There is not much nutritional value in a sponge and they're hard to digest. Hence, very few animals can eat sponges. But something was clearly eating this sponge! A sea turtle is the culprit. Sea turtles are one of the principal predators of sponges, along with a few species of fish and some invertebrates like nudibranchs.

As explained by Gary the Water Guy. http://youtu.be/CYXCQ1uvqq8 For more great information about water treatment subscribe! https://www.youtube.com/user/WaterStoreMidland There is a popular misconception that water softeners add large amounts of salt to your water to make it soft. This is untrue! If you check out my video on how a water softener works you will soon see that salt is not actually added to your water as it passes through your water softener, rather, the salt is used to make brine which is used to regenerate and clean the media inside the water softener. So is there any more sodium in the water after the water flows through the water softener than before? Yes, but very little, due to the ion exchange process that takes place to soften your water. Should you be concerned about this? Recently I decided to find out exactly how much sodium is added by taking a sample of the tap water from our store and another sample of the water after it passed through our water softener and have them both analyzed for sodium content by a laboratory that specializes in testing water and compare the results. I was shocked! Remember that drinking water guidelines for sodium is 200 mg/l and for people on sodium restricted diets it is 20 mg/l. The raw tap water tested as 8.37 mg/l while the water that had passed through our water softener tested as 8.79 mg/l., an addition of .42 mg/l. So although there was a slight increase it still did not increase the sodium level to even ½ the amount for a sodium restricted diet. So how does this relate in the real world? As a comparison, you would need to drink 2,000 glasses of this softened water for the additional sodium added by softening to equal the sodium in one bagel! That is how little sodium is being added. In fact it is virtually nothing, so no, there is nothing to be concerned about. If you want to remove 95% of the total sodium and other minerals in your water you need a Reverse Osmosis system to give you super pure, delicious drinking water!
