Abstract—The turbidity water in the disaster area is
unusable and requires long periods of precipitation and
filtration. A simple portable water filter is designed to solve the
problem of drinking water for the victims. The method to solve
the problem: a 2-in-1 motor powered by a DC battery provided
extracted and pressurized on turbid rainwater. We choose the
suitable filters set to reduce costs. The Prototyping model made
by 3D printing used to verify the user’s requirement. Both
piggyback and handheld are suitable for rescuer’s body
condition. The result shows the turbid water can be
continuously extracted and released to the drinking water of
acceptable quality during the pressurization process. We
achieved a portable water purifier which improved the water
quality and provided a short-term drinking water supply. It can
place in local community office during the disaster.
