Drinking Water Safety For The Coronavirus Pandemic

Drinking Water Safety For The Coronavirus Pandemic

Do we need to be concerned about the water supply being compromised during the coronavirus pandemic?

The current position on the UK's water purity is, at the moment, considered low.
But as clean, safe drinking water is the single most important factor for survival and the UK's current uncertainty, it must be addressed now rather than leave it too late.

Therefor it would be wise to have a look the 'what ifs" should the water in the taps become rationed, contaminated, or worse still, stop flowing....

Rationing Our Water

If the authorities were to cut off supplies to certain areas, this would have the same effect we are seeing with food supplies, meaning everyone would be scrambling for bottled water and, by the way, you'd be surprised on the amount of water you need to get through in a day.

Meanwhile there could be other areas who still have a water coming out of their taps but it's of low quality, possibly contaminated and not treated.

These scenarios are hypothetical at the moment but could become a very real possibility as the pandemic carries on.

The only sensible option, as preppers, is to be ahead of the curve at all times, this means being pro-active and making sure you are prepared for this.


You Must Store Drinking Water

The easiest and most convenient way to store bottle water is to buy the 15ltr office water cooler bottles.
These can easily be stacked up, even horizontally on top of each other.

To make pouring easier you can just add a purpose made pump to help you pour the water.

If you use the general guidelines on water usage, you require 4ltrs per person pre day.
But for survival you could get down to 3ltrs, even less if we're talking drinking water only. 

That will give five days minimum supply from one stored bottle.Ten bottles would do for one months supply per person. Then just multiply by the number of people in you household to ensure you have enough.

But What If...?

What if the authorities were to cut off supplies to certain areas, this would have the same effect we are seeing with food supplies. meaning everyone would be scrambling for bottled water and you'd be surprised on the amount of water you need to get through in a day.
Meanwhile there could be other areas who still have a water coming out of their taps but it's of low quality, possibly contaminated and not treated.

When the taps run dry you are now forced to get your drinking water from various other sources. Ponds, puddles, rain water, anywhere water collects will be a source.

That's your first problem. How do you know it's safe to drink. You could very easily be ingesting bacteria and viruses that will do you harm or even worse.

You must have a means to filter out the bad stuff and make it safe to drink. it's just too much of a risk to do nothing.

Below is the water filter systems that I use, it will filter contaminated water right down to virus level. As well as taking out all the other nasties you find in contaminated water.
You then have clean, safe water to drink.

    thanks for this information, really helpful. At almost 74 (but reasonably well) I could do without all of the nonsense that is going on re corona! Nevertheless, best to be prepared. Question is- what’s really going on, because ,as someone who was a hospital technician and did some nursing- and trained in alternative health , together with having a close friend (Phd level in genetics and biology) I know this is bovine muck, (BS) ..
