How to Make PVC Pipe Water Filter at Home?

Then drill holes with an inch size hole cutter. Then insert a 1-inch sized adapter.
If the adapter is tight enough to fit in the holes, it can be cut with a blade. If you do not have a cutter, you can heat it on a 1-inch GI pipie intstove and place it on the pipe.
Take an end cap about the size of an inch and insert a hole in the middle of it. Then connect the adapter to it. Then make a cut in the 3 mm gap.Glue the reducer and end cap together with the gum. By doing so the filter is ready.
Things to use inside the water filter
Activated carbon can be used instead of charcoal. Metal chips and shell charcoal. The top should be covered after filling the charcoal.
