Huh…It Must Be Something in the Water

There’s definitely something in the water, and none of it is good. There is so much garbage in our water that you practically need an advanced degree in chemistry to just to figure it out. It’s not a subject that can be ignored, though, because water is the most vital and life-sustaining substance that we can store.
We want to store the most pure, high-quality consumables that we can, in order to maintain our optimum wellness during any type of disaster scenario, and that includes the water we store.
Most preppers know the “Survival Rule of Three”:
3 minutes without air
3 days without water
3 weeks without food
Based on that hierarchy, if the SHTF and you’re still breathing, your next focus needs to be on drinking water. A well-prepared person will have that taken care of this by storing at least a one month supply of water for all members of the household, including pets. The basic rule for water storage is one gallon per day per person (and pet), and more if it is hot weather or you will be doing strenuous physical labor.
When I first began prepping, I used to get people to give me their empty 2 liter soda pop bottles. I blithely filled those bottles up with tap water and squirreled them away in my attic. I had, quite literally, hundreds of 2 liter bottles full of water. I’d washed them carefully, filled them up from my faucet, and added a drop of unscented chlorine bleach, just as all the prepping forums recommended.
Then I began to learn more about the dangers that were rife in tap water. I switched to bottled water….then began to learn about contaminants in bottled water. I was stymied – how do you provide your family with a proper water supply when it all seems to be contaminated? Moreover, what are you supposed to drink on a day-to-day basis? I had already cut out all sugary beverages – we drank nothing but water throughout the day. But was I still poisoning my family?
