Calcium Hypochlorite.

You could take the creek water and treat it and then use it for washing dishes, etc. Same with using it for washing.

A pound of CH will treat about 10,000 gallons. It's cheap, stores well, has a very long shelf like unlike normal bleach, and would be an excellent backup for you should the well situation not improve.

And you can, of course, use CH to treat water for drinking.

Seven weapon systems requires a lot of ammo for each weapon system. How many rounds of 308, 45, 12 ga, 9mm, etc. Lets say 5,000 rounds per weapon system. Can you hit the X ring 9 shots out of 10 at 30 yards. How many rounds do you need to qualify yourself to hit 9 X's out of 10?
My girl friend and I have a bug out location in the sierras on 10 acres with a stream near by for water. We have one weapon system. She has a lever action 22 mag with a semi auto 22 mag pistol. I have a bolt action 22 mag with a 6 to 24x scope and a 22 mag pistol. One 50 cal ammo box contains 2,000 rounds of ammo. What does 2,000 rounds of 45 or 308 or 12 ga weights?
Was stationed in Alaska and what does the eskimoes have there? Did a survey and asked. Several have 30-06 rifles and several shotguns. Majority have 22 LR rifles. They have a snow machine and hunt a bear with the 22lr rifles. They shoot at the head and save the meat to eat. How many rounds of 22lr ammo will it kill a bear? They will make as many passes on the bear to kill it. Only hit the head. The bear does not have a trophy head they want the meat.
Learn from others. Someone will comment a 22 mag is not powerful enought. How far can you carry 2,000 rounds of 22 mag? All day if need be. 2,000 rounds of 308 maybe across the garage or a bit further. 308 is great for 1200 yards but where we are 60 to 75 yards then a tree gets in the way. Shooting thru a tree to get to a bad person.............nayyyyyyyyyyyy

I reload about 15 different calibers if you have some looking for a good home let me know.

Default Washing dishes

There are two things to consider:
(1) removing debris and sticky stuff
(2) making them sanitary

The first part can be done with "dirty" water and whatever soap or detergent you prefer.

For the second part can be achieved, I think, by a thorough rinsing with boiling water and then allowing them to drip dry.

Regarding torches/flashlights look no further than LED Lenser. They have rechargeable, AA, AAA, spotlights, headlamps and whatever else you need.
