Water Storage: How to Keep Your Stored Water in Drinking Water Quality for MANY Years
If done correctly (stored airtight and in a cool place) your water will be good for many, many years,…
…when adding MMS (Sodium chlorite) to it:
¼ teaspoon (around 25 drops) per gallon (3,785 liters)
1 teaspoon per 5 gallons (18,92 liters)
1 ½ teaspoons per 7 gallons (26,49 liters)
2 ½ teaspoons per 15 gallons (56,78 liters)
1 ounce (29 ml) per 55 gallons (208 liters)
As a side note: Store about 2 gallons per person per day (1.5 as a minimum)
The above described method works.
However, I would recommend to nevertheless filter (or boil) that water before consumption, just to make sure.
Have to do everything you possibly can to avoid getting sick in a SHTF situation.
All the best.

This video is about the water storage you do not have. In 200 households interviewed in preparation for this TNP video, less than 5% have a adequate water supply in storage. Adequate means to me at least a 30 day supply for everyone under your roof. It is a frequently missed preparedness commodity, critical to your family’s survival. Natural disasters, terrorist attacks, loss of electrical service, flooding, and war have destroyed previously reliable and safe to drink water supplies in our history. You need to store some, probably lots, independent external sources or filtering for your needs. With this in mind, the philosophy of this need is addressed in the foundation of this original Nutnfancy WROL video. Based on years of it working for our family, I then share how we approach water storage preparation. Additives, containers, filtration integration, water quality, quantities needed, and sourcing are all discussed and shown. I drink 7 year old water on camera to prove the point of our storage effectiveness. Please watch and heed the advice given as it may save your life one day.///////////////////////////////////////////Addtiives of stabilized oxygen are as follows [from www.liquid-stabilized-oxygen.com]: ¼ teaspoon (around 25 drops) per gallon of stored drinking water., 1 teaspoon per 5 gallons,1 ½ teaspoons per 7 gallons, 2 ½ teaspoons per 15 gallons of stored drinking water.////////////////////////////Other web resources: http://www.industrialcontainer.com, www.emergencyessentials.com, www.honeyvillefoods.com, www.survivalsolutions.com, also Industrial Container at 1845 S 5200 W Salt Lake City, UT 84104 (801) 972-1561 has excellent prices on bulk water containers.

It’s certainly a good to know how to make a survival water filter, BUT…
…ALWAYS additionally boil or filter that water!!!
Use a water filter to make sure all harmful bacteria & protozoa are removed…
I have NO personal experience with the MSR. The Katadyn and the Sawyer are great.
- Military-grade water purifier pump removes viruses, bacteria, protozoa, and particulate from contaminated water sources virtually anywhere on earth
- Meets NSF protocol P248 testing standard of the U.S. military, using medical-grade fibers to provide protection from the tiniest waterborne threats
- Pumps at a rapid 2.5 liters per minute, treats up to 10,000 liters of water, and withstands freezing, drops, heavy use, and harsh environments
- Pump self-cleans on every stroke, providing consistently fast flow rates with zero hassle—no backflushing or filter-scrubbing ever required
- Ideal for backcountry, expeditions, global travel, and survival; purifier pump measures 8.2 x 4.7 inches and weighs 17.3 ounces; made in the USA

Private companies such as Coca-Cola and Nestlé are allegedly in the process of privatizing the largest reserve of water, known as the Guarani Aquifer, in South America. The aquifer is located beneath the surface of Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay and is the second largest-known aquifer system in the world.
Reported by Correiodo Brasil the major transnational conglomerates are “striding forward” with their negotiations to privatize the aquifer system. Meetings have already been reserved with authorities of the current government, such as Michel Temer, to outline procedures required for private companies to exploit the water sources. The concession contracts will last more than 100 years.
The first public conversation about this dilemma was scheduled on the same day the process of voting for the impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff was opened. As Central Politico reports, “This coincidence was fatal for the adjournment of the meeting.”

“A reasoned approach, with suggestions for us, rather than leaving us panicking in mid air.”
Despite being at the top of the global food chain and industrial developmental ladder, the United States has a poor track record for delivering uncontaminated drinking water to the public. Even the nicest restaurants are guilty of serving you directly from the tap. It’s time to get real about the ‘tap water problem,’ one of the most significant vectors of toxicity of our age…
Water is life, as the saying goes. And it’s more than just a poetic phrase. Water is so intrinsically connected to life, if you counted all the molecules in the human body, 99% of them would be water!
On average, a human life can be sustained for up to three weeks without food, but a person won’t survive more than a few days without water. Under extreme conditions, an adult can lose around one liter of water per hour, all of which needs to be readily replaced to maintain a healthy fluid balance. So, what could be more important than consuming high quality, non-contaminated water?
Water is a precious commodity, and without it we can’t grow food and survive. Yet industrial agriculture wastes water on a shocking scale, using open air irrigation and relying on fossil water supplies to grow food inefficiently.
If we hope to meet the demands of surging human population, we must conserve our water resources through sustainable agricultural methods such as permaculture and organic agriculture.
With many of the world’s largest aquifers now collapsing, much of the fossil water supply that feeds our world will be depleted before the year 2050. A global food collapse is now inevitable unless food production techniques are dramatically shifted toward sustainable practices. A food collapse, by the way, also means mass social unrest, revolutions and the toppling of world governments. Starvation inevitably leads to disease, suffering and mass death.
For all those who want safe & healthy drinking water:
After reading this article, you will never look at tap water the same way again. Most Americans have generally assumed that the water coming out of our taps is perfectly safe, but the Flint water crisis and other similar incidents are starting to help people to understand that there are some very dangerous substances in our water. In particular, I am talking about things like arsenic, lead, atrazine, perchlorate and a whole host of pharmaceutical drugs. According to an absolutely stunning NRDC report, close to 77 million Americans received their water from systems “that violated federal protections” in 2015. And even if you get your water from a system that meets federal standards, that still does not mean that it is safe.
Let’s start by talking about arsenic. Earlier today I came across an article that talked about how levels of arsenic in the water at some schools in the San Joaquin Valley “exceed the maximum federal safety levels by as much as three times”…
So it was not true (as reported by MSM) that she is drinking rainwater…

Droughts could be consigned to history after scientists invented a water harvester which can pull moisture out of the air using only the power of the Sun.
The prototype, designed by scientists at MIT and the University of California, works even in desert conditions and could eventually provide households with all the drinkable water they need, simply by extracting dampness from the surrounding atmosphere.
