The video describes the Multi-Stage Filtration (MSF) system combining the dynamic filter, the roughing filter and the slow sand filter. It focuses on how they operate and how and when to maintain and clean them. The system is a simulation of the water cycle as it is in the mountains, a biological system of cleaning the water at low cost and efficient if properly managed. Some aspects of community management are raised through the link between the system operator and the community, where the latter also has knowledge on the system and helps managing it.

Abstract

The video describes the Multi-Stage Filtration (MSF) system combining the dynamic filter, the roughing filter and the slow sand filter. It focuses on how they operate and how and when to maintain and clean them. The system is a simulation of the water cycle as it is in the mountains, a biological system of cleaning the water at low cost and efficient if properly managed. Some aspects of community management are raised through the link between the system operator and the community, where the latter also has knowledge on the system and helps managing it.
