So you want to prevent Dirty Electricity, but you don’t want to spend a fortune on filters? No problem!
With a few tools and some parts, you can DIY your own DE filters that perform just as well as pre-made Greenwave or Stetzerizer filters.
I made 14 additional filters and saved a TON of money.
Just be aware that you should probably have some experience soldering and working with 120/240V AC equipment.
Don’t want to burn your house down!

Thankyou for yet another awesome video on dirty electricity.
Are you able to create dirty electricity filter using extension cord socket? And can you reduce costs by using more than one or two big capacitors? Do you hear that you cam use AM radio to test dirty electricity? Could you create a video when you use AM radio with filter on and with filter off? In other worlds, do I have to buy DE meter or just AM radio will be OK for amateur measure?
Can you plug a computer in the same / sheared socket and it will then emit less dirty electricity when using it?
Yeah, you can do that. In fact, I had to plug a DE filter in the back of my desktop puter UPS (battery backup) to get low readings around my desk area. You just have to experiment though and try placing the filters in different outlets until you get the most reduction in the DE reading.
thank you for your video!
I have a question somehow related to this. Please forgive how I put this, I am not an engineer and English is only a second language.
It is about “cleaning” the ground wire. We have been discussing this for long in a chat group. Since the ground wire runs closely to the live wire there is a current induced to it, right? Now, the ground has become important for people who want to take benefit of the electrical connection with the earth for health benefits. Grounding/earthing sheets and mats are connected to the ground of the outlet to create that electrical connection like as if touching earth directly, i.e. standing on it without an isolator between eart and feet. If now there is current induced to the ground wire, along with possible dirty ‘noise’, that makes it not very healthy to connect it to the body. People have reported adverse effects, opposed to connecting directly to the ground outside. Now, there are products being sold that seem to filter the load. Here she demsontrates it with a simple EMF reader: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ct3bg0CbYp4.
Maybe you understand how this ‘filter’ works, and maybe how to make it oneself. That would be of great help for the many people who can’t afford such a pre-made cord, and also maybe one can improve it.
Many thanks in advance,
I think you attached the wrong link… Could you check on it? I’m curious to see the video but I think this one takes you to a Planet Fungi video. Thank you for asking, I’ve wondered the same thing!
