I want to make a water hydration system like him.

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. -Proverbs 6: 6-8

Doesn't look that much different than his. Probably works the same.

I just use splatter screens which are normally used for cooking.  They can be found at most grocery and dollar stores.

Amazon/ebay, just type in "fine stainless steel mesh" there's several grades and idr what the right one is off the top of my head but they're usually shown compared to a coin so you can get an idea of how fine the weave is
