• Water Purification Usability/Storage Knowledge?

    Answers Given

    Answers Favorited

  • I can find all sorts of devices & "authoritative sources" that cover water purification for emergencies & survival, and I feel more confused than helped.

    Are there a few end-all, be-all authorities that I can learn from to avoid such confusion? I think scenario-based advice & experience ("temporarily disabled infrastructure preparedness" or "what to carry for field replenishment" or "practical day-to-day preparations with minimal maintenance requirements") would be very welcome.

    I'm not looking for zillions of prepper links - I'm hoping for solid, science-based pragmatic thought.

I think what you're looking for is someone to write the authoritative article on the subject. You clearly don't want to do any of the "prepper" reading on your own, so this question looks like a call for someone to aggregate the entire world of water purification for you into a pamphlet.

It sounds like a terrific pamphlet.

http://www.mec.ca/AST/ContentPrimary/Learn/HikingAndCamping/FoodAndWater/ChoosingAWaterTreatmentSystem.jsp Mountain Equipment Coop has a pretty good info section on water purification with backpackers in mind. The basic science is outlined and complemented with the pro and cons of available systems. MEC is a great place for outdoor supplies in Canada, by the way.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
