Abstract

Water Filtration System Over time, the use of bodies of waters for recreational use is slowly contaminating the water with external pollution--such as discharged gasoline from water crafts. So, if a designed water system can purify water, then over time the water should be cleaner. To achieve this, a water system could be made with a filter to attached to it. The filter serves as a separator to split the water and fuel, and allow the clean water back into the body of water. Since not all the fuel can be separated at one time, the system must consistently run till all (or most) of the fuel is gone. Fuel measurements will be recorded every five minutes, and checked to see if the fuel has been separated from the water. The data collected during the proof of concept showed that a water filter system could be made, and that the water added to the system comes out of it as well. Even Though the data collected does not correlate with the hypothesis at this time, by adding gasoline to the water system to be filtered shows potential that it can be done. The water system filter could be placed at ramps and docks at lakes and large bodies of water. This is to absorb and filter out the gasoline that is being leaked by boats and water crafts. Later on, more arguments could be made to the system, by adding a fine mesh layer on top to catch debris on the water. The water Water Trash-Can Fuel Separator Water Cleaner
