    I hope that we all realize that we have 30-40-50 gallons of drinkable water available in our water heater in case we should need it. (power outage, etc.) But have you recently drained the sediment from it lately? Water heaters occasionally get a build up up sediment in the bottom, and we don't...

    Past threads have emphasized the need for country folks to have generators to run their wells....but I have heard no mention about those living in the cities getting their water from huge wells run by the city. If SHTF, and all electricity is lost, including backup generators, people living in...

    So I was standing in the yard today thinking about my well going out in a SHTF situation and how I haven't built the PVC well bucket with foot-valve like I've seen all over this site. At this point, my mind starts to kick into gear thinking what if today was the day that SHTF, what would I...

    So, after reading about water for the last 6 or 7 days I find myself at a small impasse. Storing water in 275 gallon jugs is nice and all, and heck, my big berkey is just flat out amazing, but what about long term? By long term I am not talking about 4 months, I am talking about "attack from...

    Saw a website recently that has a "portable" 110v device for extracting water from the atmosphere. It says it can produce up to 55 gals of drinking water in a tad over 3 days at an average of 60% humidity. It costs around $500. I was thinking if you used a converter attached to solar panels it...

    There was a thread posted a couple of days ago about eating rotten food and the immunity that it could help develop if you ever HAD to eat rotten food. This got me to thinking about drinking bad water. Would the same methodology work here? If I randomly drink water from streams, lakes...

    I am talking municipal, suburban water system. The way I understand it is water is pumped up with electricity into towers and the water is distributed by gravity putting it under pressure. Seems to me that the taps might stop flowing long before the towers are empty because it needs the weight...

    There's a local forest preserve district wooded area that has a couple of old-fashioned hand-operated water pumps that feed from an underground well or natural spring (i'm not sure..). In the event of our water getting knocked out by some type of catastrophic event like an earthquake or tornado...

    Just recently picked up a new water tank and was looking for help and best ways to preserve the water and how long it is good for.
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So, like most I've been trying to get my ducks in a row, also like most a plan for water is included in that. I'm going to share where I'm at and where I want to be as well how I'm going to get there. Please share your thoughts on the below. My initial plan is to Bug In. I live in a small...

    I've been mulling over the water pump problem if SHTF. Looking at ways to get it out of the well easily and logically. I live in a rural area on a dirt road in western Mass. Hand pump it out. Bison sells for about $1700. Inexpensive but I'd rarer turn on a faucet. Solar water pump. Yikes -...

    Water, water everywhere and nar a drop to drink - is a classic statement from the rhyme of the ancient mariner. But in the case of urban survival, there is no water and there is nothing to drink. Most urbanites depend on water supplied by the city - through the cities water system. However...
