If SHTF you could experience a drastic disruption to your water supply.
Given the importance of water for survival, having a reliable source of water after a disaster needs to be one of your main priorities.
Even worse, if the grid goes down it will be extremely difficult to pump water from a source, so taking the right precautions will be invaluable.
Consider a hydro-powered water pump that requires no external energy (electric, solar or otherwise) using only the current of the water to power your water pump.
It works due to the water in the wheel being higher than the release pipe, the larger the wheel the more pressure you will have to pump the water.
More coils provide a greater head lift, or ability to pump uphill. What an ingenious idea that could be a lifesaver.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
