Banana peels are generally considered to be waste usually thrown away, but in fact it has important benefits to clear water. The purpose of this study is to use banana peels to clear dirty water from rivers. The process used is filtered coated water using gravel sand, charcoal, palm fiber and the final filter layer is banana peels that acts as a place to disinfect raw water against germs and bacteria still present in the water. The results obtained indicate that water purification using banana peels meets the criteria for physical testing, including water levels with a pH between 7.0 8.5, and does not interfere with the taste and smell of water. Rainwater and river water can be used as cleaning water because the pH meets all requirements but cannot be used as clean water because bacteriologically all samples do not meet the drinking water
