Water Purification and Filtration
Water purification is probably the most important thing you’ll need in a survival situation. If your getting water from a source you’re not certain is clean don’t trust it. If your water comes from a well it is probably OK. The water from our well is great but we still use one of the larger filters like the Big Berkey or Alexpure just to be safe.
In my Bug Out Bag I have following items for water treatment:
Boiling water for 10 minutes at a hard boil will kill 99.9% of the bacterria in the water this would be my first choice but is not always convenient. So I then turn to my Survival Spring Filter . With this I can take water right from river, stream or lake.
I once got caught out in the Nevada desert luckily I had plenty of water but this is where the coffee filters would come into use they have many uses one of which is filtering solids from water.
