WATER PURIFICATION, TREATMENT & STORAGE SYSTEMS

The minimum recommendation of water storage is to have at least 1 gallon of water per person per day for two weeks. And, since we guarantee the lowest prices around, preparing your water storage won’t leave you high and dry.


Water keeps us alive, is an important part of cooking, and makes up most of who we are. In fact, the human body can last weeks without food, but only a few days without water. Having a proper water storage can bring health, safety, and convenience back to your life during times of crisis.

The minimum recommendation of water storage is to have at least 1 gallon of water per person per day for two weeks. And, since we guarantee the lowest prices around, preparing your water storage won’t leave you high and dry.


WHY WATER STORAGE?

Water is an essential component of life. Without water, life could not exist. During an emergency situation, drinkable water may not be available for a variety of reasons. Electricity loss and other issues can mean the loss of running water in your household. However, even if water is accessible during a crisis, it may be contaminated and deemed unsafe to drink. Contaminated water can be deadly. It is vital to have the capability to store fresh water for emergencies. We offer a variety of emergency water storage solutions to see you through any emergency, including conveniently packaged water pouches sold individually or by the case.

Water storage containers should be considered for long-term water storage as part of your emergency plan. We offer a variety of containers including 55-gallon water storage barrels and personal-sized portable water containers to ensure you can survive any crisis without losing access to water. Survival water storage containers are available in a variety of sizes including personal bottles and larger buckets. Ideally, every member of your household should have at least one gallon of water per day for two weeks as part of your emergency plan.

In addition to having suitable emergency water storage containers, it is also important to have the right accessories. Water filters and treatment systems are important to ensure the water you are drinking is always safe. Filters and treatment systems will ensure any unsafe water can be transformed into a clean, hydrating resource. The water filters are conveniently portable so you can take them with you hiking, camping, or while enjoying other outdoor recreational pursuits.

WATER STORAGE

Store as much water as possible; aim for two weeks of stored water. Start small-enough for just one day-then build up to three days, one week, etc.

Good water storage options include food-grade emergency water barrels (or other containers like water tanks or jugs), boxed water kits you fill yourself, and pre-packaged water like emergency drinking water pouches or small, pre-filled water boxes. If you are an urban prepper or live in a hurricane-prone area, consider a temporary bathtub water storage system like the AquaPod.

WATER FILTRATION AND PURIFICATION

Invest in a couple of different methods to purify and filter water, especially if you can't have permanent water storage because of limited space.

  • A water filter: microfilters are the best for removing as many microorganisms as possible from the water (a Katadyn water filter, like the Katadyn Pocket or Vario, is a great investment for your preparedness gear).
  • Chemical water purification/treatment options like the Aquamira Chlorine Dioxide treatment (for killing microorganisms that are too small for microfilters to catch).
  • A way to boil water (an alternative to chemical treatment)- a portable stove is a great option for this.
  • UV light treatment (disrupts the DNA of microorganisms, making it impossible for them to multiply in your digestive system).

NOT SURE WHICH OPTIONS TO PICK?
