Water Purification

February 06, 2014

The cholera disaster unfolding in Haiti is something that might have been prevented with the proper care and precautions.

This is not just a third world problem. In times of disaster, keep fresh potable water available.If you don’t have a cache of water set aside in pouches and larger containers, keep a good supply of water purification tablets available.

The illnesses associated with contaminated water are avoidable with the proper preparation and planning.

Use sturdy, BPA Free plastic containers when storing water for long periods-up to 5 years.

Supermarket water comes in plastic containers that can leech harmful chemicals into your drinking water.
