We take water for granted every day. It’s impossible not to. Whenever you need it’s there. It’s available in any quantity you need for any use and water is inexpensive.
Because of that relationship that we have with water its hard to understand the fact that it can be taken away.
We are going to look at some answer to the question of water storage. You see, we are not able to store all the water might need to survive every kind of disaster.
Its as much about progress as it is about a variety of methods. There are many complications that come along with water. Things like weight, bacteria, and space are all big ones!
Let’s look at some tips on water storage.
Emergency water has a lot to do with sourcing. There are real limits to how much water the average person can store.
The key to successful water storage is sourcing from every aspect that you can. Your water source should not just be a well or a bottle of water. It should be from the sky, the streams, the storage and whatever else you can muster.
Once you have identified a wide variety of water sources, you should focus on how to make that water potable.
The most effective method, without question, is boiling. Of course, it’s not always the best method at the time. Boiling takes time and sometimes using an Aquatab or other means is quicker.
Your home should have some sort of potable water stored on site. It’s very important to have something you can access when you need it.
Water storage at home can be purchased or caught water. Rainwater is a great means of water storage that can stay outside and not take up space in the home.
A variety of storage methods is where you win the day.
